Explore 150 chemicals in a virtual lab in the BEAKER app. Add in chemicals, heat it up, and shake your device to start reactions. Pour them out to clean it up. Or team up with your friends to pour chemicals between each other via AirMix™.
Use virtual Match, Lid and Burner to assist your experiment. Or get the extra five tools - Blender, Cooler, Separator, Filter and Meter to do even more complex operations.
Start (tap or hold on chemicals to add)
- CaO + H2O
- K + H2O (fire)
- Na + H2O (fire)
- Al + Br2 (fire)
Ignite (swipe your finger and hold, like striking a match)
- Ignite Mg, C, Al
- Ignite H2 + O2 (explosion)
Heat Up (swipe in from the lower right corner to turn on Burner)
- Boil Water (H2O)
- Heat Fe + HNO3 (color transformation)
Shake (shake to accelerate reactions)
- CuSO4 + H2O + Mg (color transformation)
- AgNO3 + H2O + Cu (precipitation)
- AgNO3 + H2O + NaCl (precipitation)
AirMix* (nearby BEAKERs will pair automatically)
- Pour Na into Cl2 (fire)
- Pour CH3COOH into NaHCO3 + Blue (bubbles)
- Pour NaCl + H2O into AgNO3 + H2O (precipitation)
* AirMix requires an Internet connection and geolocation services.

Ratings and Reviews
Great but a few problems
I can’t get AirMix to work and I’ve tried everything. I looked it up and said to allow it to use location but I can’t find the app in my settings at all. Other than that I love using it. However, I wish there were maybe more liquids to mix because I’ve tried putting a bunch of liquids together and hardly ever get a reaction. Also, it could be cool if there was a way that we could get solids to dissolve in liquids if they are able to be dissolved. It’s a great game and I spend a lot of time on it.
It’s a good learning tool but…
It is fairly basic and doesn’t have a lot of features.
You can heat up the contents of a mixture but you can’t cool it down.
Some chemical reactions are not present. (probably to avoid complications with the app)
(… and I have tried once before to make manganese heptoxide… )
You can make different compounds than what are shown in the menus, but not knowing how much you have or how hot it is while in a liquid or gaseous state makes using them in an efficient manner difficult…
There are also a few problems with the app such as:
Small operations are good, but I would recommend that anyone refrain from using more than 20 of any solid material at once especially with the more explosive reactions that can occur as they can cause serious frame issues or in some cases cause the app to crash entirely.
Do NOT try to mix solid NaOH with solid NHCl as having them touch at all will instantly cause the app to crash.
Sometimes while the lid is over the beaker, materials from explosive chemical reactions can fly through the lid and out of the beaker. (though it is a rare occurrence)
Honestly, I don’t recommend this app outside a classroom as it is lacking a lot of features for any sort of at-home application…
Coolest app since the launch of the iPod Touch
In my opinion, as someone that likes to experiment with colors and chemicals but doesn’t have unending resources because I do it on my own dime, this app is a winner. It is free and who knows for how long. The app also is very genuine and creative which reminds me of the good old iPod Touch days when apps were being released left and right that made the touch sensitivity and accelerometer such fascinating capabilities. I hope to see more updates. Right now I’m too content with the app to suggest anything other than future bug fixes. Great job to the developer! Shouts out to all the chemistry geeks and nerds
