 WAGmob's Mechanical Engineering 101

Apparently, the designers from WAGmob were hungry when designing the Mechanical Engineering 101 app. It breaks the concepts down into "snack-sized and bite-sized" chinks for easy learning. The app and accompanying e-book are broken down into manageable chapters and include flash cards to help memorise the concepts. They include information on engineering materials, mechanical properties, measurements, thermodynamics, and fluid mechanics, along with a host of information every student or engineer could use. Though just about everything is covered, it is presented in "quick-summary" form without going into too much detail.

 MuseMaze's EveryCircuit Free

Circuit design has never been easier, at least on mobile devices, with MuseMaze's EveryCircuit Free app. Users can build any circuit and validate the design by watching dynamic voltage, current, and charge animations play out and getting an in-depth look at how it functions. The app even lets users adjust circuit parameters while the simulation is running, and it responds to those actions in real-time. It also features access to a public repository of circuit designs, an on-board oscilloscope, and automatic wire routing.

If that weren't enough, it lets users to generate an arbitrary input signal using just a finger, and it incorporates voltage waveforms and capacitor charge animations. Best of all, the app is free but does not display those annoying ads that are prominently featured in most free applications.
