Use iCell to Take a Look Inside Cells

Share

iCell, produced by the Hudson Alpha Institute for Biotechnology, is a free Android app that biology teachers and students should check out.

iCell gives users a three dimensional look inside plant, animal, and bacteria cells. You can click on the parts of the cells to reveal the names of those parts and their functions within the cells. iCell offers three levels of complexity of information; basic, intermediate, and advanced. The basic level is appropriate for middle school while the intermediate and advanced levels are appropriate for high school.

The iCell Android app is optimized for viewing on tablets as well as on phones. It worked great on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
