Science Glossary @VL

COST: Free
DESCRIPTION: Education, Native, Reference, Science, Utilities
..RELEASED: 7/21/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 4 Stars..

I wish all students could own iPhones as is required by a few universities these days. The idea behind that to make important information available globally, or to those who are studying a similar curriculum. There are already Math and Language apps, and now an excellent Science app called Science Glossary VL is available at the app store. I was pleased with the organized and easy to navigate interface of Science Glossary, and the amount of information it offered. This app has an outstanding alphabetical index that lists scientists, formulas, scientific topics, terms and all things related. If you prefer, you may search for a particular topic according to your needs. When you tap on an Index item, the definition is given (with any linked, related sub-categories), and a choice of 3 other buttons you may tap for additional information. Tap the Index button to return to Index, tap the Modules button where your chosen item may be found in depth on the website, or tap the Random button where a similar type entry is listed. This is a no-frills app that provides you with the information you need without wasting time. It is an excellent study or reference aid.

"This app is an extensive glossary of scientific terms and short biographies of key scientists. Formatted specifically for the iPhone and provided by Visionlearning, Inc., all definitions link to related terms and detailed science learning modules."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: This free app is definitely worth your time whether or not you are a student. Our education never ends!
--Languages: English, Spanish
--Developer: Visionlearning, Inc.
