All joking aside, this time you will understand how electronic circuits work. Build any circuit, tap play button, and watch dynamic voltage, current, and charge animations. This gives you insight into circuit operation like no equation does. While simulation is running, adjust circuit parameters with analog knob, and the circuit responds to your actions in real time. You can even generate an arbitrary input signal with your finger!

EveryCircuit is not just an eye candy. Under the hood it packs custom-built simulation engine optimized for interactive mobile use, serious numerical methods, and realistic device models. In short, Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws, nonlinear semiconductor device equations, and all the good stuff is there.
Growing library of components gives you freedom to design any analog or digital circuit from a simple voltage divider to transistor-level masterpiece.
Schematic editor features automatic wire routing, and minimalistic user interface. No nonsense, less tapping, more productivity.
Simplicity, innovation, and power, combined with mobility, make EveryCircuit a must-have companion for high school science and physics students, electrical engineering college students, breadboard and printed circuit board (PCB) enthusiasts, and ham radio hobbyists.
Join EveryCircuit cloud community to store your circuits on cloud and access them from any of your mobile devices. Explore public community circuits and share your own designs.
EveryCircuit is free to download and use. There is an option to purchase the Full Version of EveryCircuit that adds access to thousands of community circuits, large workspace area, cloud storage, and sync between your devices and is available through a one time in-app purchase for $14.99.

Ratings and Reviews
Good app for learning and basic simulation
I’ve been using this for a couple of years now, and it works well for visually reinforcing concepts you may have learned in class or while reading tutorials on the web or elsewhere. It saves a lot of trouble of having to breadboard simple circuits just to see the mechanics of how a particular circuit works.
Couple of improvements could be made though.
Workspace, even in the paid version, is still a tad small. You either have to very carefully plan out where to place things to keep the schematic compact, or you’ll be moving parts in the middle of a design just to make room.
There is no way to adjust the y axis on the scope function, so it is constantly rescaling that axis when you make adjustments to a component’s value. Not so much a problem with DC, but trying to observe any kind of waveform you can’t really see how the amplitude of the waveform is changing like you can on an actual scope, except to watch the (rapidly changing) scale on the y axis.
There are some quirks that sometimes give erratic results or throw up an error when you try to run them, usually a quick search on the web produces a work around, but just be aware that sometimes even relatively simple circuits can cause the app problems even though you may have a perfectly functioning physical circuit.
So far, the only virtual EC app I’ve seen on iTunes
... and it works very well (provided you know basic electronics - there is very little in explanation of the components in the app). I’ve not worked with hands-on electronics for awhile; however, I’ve recently came across a reboot of an all-in-one electronics kit and have found this app an excellent addition to “see” what’s happening within the kit’s setups. I give the neat-top rating because of rarity of app and implementation.
I ask for a potentiometer where upper and lower resistance limits can be adjusted, a center-tap transformer and a possible audio / RF input/output simulation :)
Great, but limited
This app requires the knowledge of the symbols. You will not find explanations or even names for the symbols. Also, this app does not have many basic symbols that I use. For instance, an VERY common component in my every day work is a simple HOA (hand, off, auto) switch. There is a SPDT (single pole, double throw) switch, but there are times I NEED the off position. Also, there is no search mechanism, nor any sort of help or feedback option. Very tempted to spend the $15 bucks for this app as it is fantastic for what it does. But, I’m just not there yet.
Update: I purchased the app to see what it unlocks. It is a 100% ripoff. It does not unlock anything. I will be asking for my money back. If this app does not work for you in your free trial DO NOT PAY FOR IT. the developer says paying “unlocks the FULL version.” There is no more. I changed my rating from a 4 star to a 1 star because the awful experience outweighs the functionality of the app.
