Using 3D graphics and 2D electronic symbols, you will build simple parallel circuits by using wires, batteries, switches, and light bulbs. By constructing their own closed circuit with two light bulbs, you will develop a deeper understanding of series and parallel circuits and discover that electricity follows the path of least resistance.
fixed compatibility issues for iOS 11.

A great learning tool!
"Don't do THAT! You'll create a short circuit!" Words you won't have to say if your kid(s) use this app (and it's sister app, Serial Circuits). My son is actually learning quite a bit blithely blowing up the virtual batteries - and figuring out how you have to connect them to blow up 4 at the same time, instead of just a paltry 2.
The tutorials that accompany the lessons (and the mistakes) are pretty clear.
If you are looking for a puzzle game - this ain't it. But if you are looking for an introduction to circuits and electricity, then you have a winner. No parts to lose, simple pick-up and the melted wires are self repairing.
My very paltry complaints: i wish the lightbulbs would grow brighter and dimmer to reflect different power levels, and the interface is a bit repetitive and rigid.
This app is so basic, as it has preset configurations that simply ask you to drag and drop the circuit element into the empty spot. There is NO ability to create circuits nor make measurements of voltage, current, or resistance. It does have some nice descriptions, and allows the user to make the connection between the real-world objects and the circuit diagram on the board, however this is suitable for elementary school kids. I am a high school physics teacher and was hoping for MUCH more functionality, and if this is what you are also looking for, save your $1!
not worth 1 cent.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
