As a budding Engineer, wouldn’t it be nice if you had apps that helped you ? There are. Depending on your area of study there are specialised apps available for each are of engineering, on both the apple and android app stores. Here are 3 must haves :
- Wolfram Alpha describes itself as “ a unique engine for computing answers and providing knowledge. It is like a wikipedia for engineers, and “It works by using its vast store of expert-level knowledge and algorithms to automatically answer questions, do analysis and generate reports” It is available here
2. Icircuit — as the name suggests, helps you build and test circuits on your smartphone. It has over 30 elements that can be used to build and test circuits.
“ The app has everything from simple resistors, to switches, to MOSFETS, to digital gates.
The app features a multimeter that you use to probe around the circuit to instantly read voltages and currents. If you want to see how a value changes over time, then you can add values to the built-in oscilloscope. The scope can simultaneously track many signals over time and features a touch interface to control the total time displayed and stacked and unstacked modes to easily compare signals.”

3. Mechanical Engineering One As the name suggests, is meant mainly for mechanical engineering students and professionals. The app includes “ various reference tables, calculators, converters. It also has one of the most comprehensive unit converter in the market.”
