Smart Microscope (best educational Android apps for kids)

This is an amazing app! Constantly pestered with the question, "What's inside x" by my eldest daughter when she was 4 or 5, this would have answered a lot of her questions. Smart Microscope has over 70 slides to examine, covering objects such as a bee sting, pine cones, a chicken feather, blood and more. Smart Microscope has a free lite version you can try, as well as a web version you can access by subscription (see demo via link below). Fascinating for older children, and very useful for educators, this app is a must download.


No ads, in-apps or external links (only the lite version has an external link to purchase the full version)

The opening screen presents a choice of six categories to choose from: Featured, Humans/Mammals, Insects/Spiders, Other Animals, Plants/Fungi and Single-celled Organisms. Within each category, are up to 26 slides to choose from, giving high definition, high magnification images of the object being examined. I could not find exactly what magnification was given, each slide would be different, depending on the object i.e. a foot would not have the same magnification as a single cell amoeba. Each slide is labeled with points of interest, for example, white blood cells in human blood or barbs on a chicken feather.

Smart Microscope fills a niche in the Android market for high quality science apps for older kids. There are not many apps like this one, believe me! Head over to the Smart Microscope website and try out the Demo there. Then come back and download the app and be WOWed!



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 to try out this unique app.

Also highly recommended for children!
