First time in my life that I've been excited to learn about cells. I'm 21, and I'm very interested in science and especially biology. This highlights some of the benefits of this technology, I think, in regards to learning styles like mine. First of all this app is very well designed, so bravo to those involved. Makes for an interesting, smooth experience in which the user has control over the pace at which the information is absorbed, and exactly what is absorbed when. Personally, I like to guide myself. Interest in each aspect of these models arises at random and that is when I absorb the information the best... As interest arises. This app makes it easy for interest manifest itself. Thanks.
I love the iPad! It makes learning really fun, this app is great for biology class. I think it could use some updates though for a larger selection of cells. I love how you don't look at a boring picture! In this app you see a 3-d image of the cell and you can zoom in or out and observe it in detail. This app is great for learners new to the subject or advanced. Clicking on different parts of the cell will bring up text boxes explaining what it is and what it's purpose is inside of the cell. If you are a new learner, you can click on basic for a basic explanation, if you are advanced you will receive a more in depth explanation.
Beautiful interactive graphic design. As a teacher, I appreciate having the text available at three levels of complexity. This will allow students to learn at the reading level best suited to them. Couldn't find the cytoplasm, and perhaps the vacuole could occupy a more defined space, but overall, this is an excellent visual tool for students. Thanks!
A truly excellent app. I would have to agree with other reviews. If you increase the level of description of the basic element, it would be a thing of beauty. Also cannot exit on tablet as back button does not respond, had to force close as it was still running in the background. Still love it.
Very helpfull I love this app because you can choose how detailed and complicated the description for each cell. Having access to screen shots is helpfull to have with this app so you can look back at the information. The 3D is brilliant!!
I wish I'd had this when I was in school! I have a learning disability and struggled in school; the sciences in particular. Had this technology been as accessible then as now, I would have been so much more confident in my academic abilities. Even better would be to have narration.
Nice learning tool I like this 3D rendering of animal, plant, and bacteria cells. There are not enough thing like this for Android. The developer should make more for biology and for chemistry. How about 3D molecule building. Basically, go to University of Utah Genetics website and do things similar as Apps.
Good Very good app to have, but I thought there was a division between smooth and rough er? I just downloaded the program, so maybe I haven't tapped the right area yet--still great because you can zoom in and out, rotate, and the graphic shows how the inside of the cell is in constant motion.
Really great As an amateur I've read tons of stuff about cell metabolism and this app makes it easy to visualize it all. Thanks.
At first... I just got it for science class at fertitta middle school ms. Challhube but it is amazing! Comment of you saw my comment, sixth-grade science period two - Michael Stirling
My science teacher told me about it... I really like it. My science teacher said that we have to do a project where we make a 3D visual of a cell and we have to name the parts of the cell... So this app has really helped me out a lot. ;)
