Kids and teens with a nose for science will love these two virtual microscope apps from Smart In Media.
Note: this developer makes its apps available on sites other than Amazon. The first time you use the app you may be prompted to download a ‘newer version’, and will be warned that version is from a source other than the Amazon App Store. If so, that version is not yet approved as Kindle Fire compatible. Follow the prompt that allows you to ‘go to Amazon App Store instead?’ and if a newer, compatible version is available you can download it there.
Smart Microscope is the first virtual mobile microscope for everyone! In this revolutionary app you get over 70 microscopic slides of amazing insects, spiders, dangerous parasites, beautiful plants and medical specimens of humans. Smart Microscope can be used like a real microscope, with which you can zoom into the virtual slides with your fingers. There are numerous expert comments on all slides and in all zoom levels to understand the biology underneath.
All you need is an internet connection to access these high-resolution images from anywhere. The app contains 4 languages: English, Spanish, German, French. There is also a free LITE-version (includes 5 slides) to try out this unique app.
KF on KND Editor’s Note: while this app has just one, 3-star review, the reviewer downrated it on account of difficulties in viewing its slides on a non-Fire Android device. The reviewer, a Histology student, goes on to rave about the excellent quality of the images on his Kindle Fire. Also note that this app includes slides featuring human tissues and reproductive anatomy, so some parents may feel it’s inappropriate for younger children. The extremely high-resolution images, multiple languages, quiz function and human tissue content are all reasons why this app is priced considerably higher than most game apps, at $10.52 (as of this writing).
