About the app

Welcome to a fascinating journey to learn about cells, their structure, and function. Cell and Cell Structure is Emantras’ newest educational app that’s aimed at your middle school student. This one’s all about life’s smallest unit – the cell. Stunning graphics and in-depth content will take you right into a cell and its functions. Specifically designed for middle-school students, this app is the perfect compliment to the life-science curriculum.

So, this is what you’ll see in the app. Cell and Cell Structure comes with three main menu options once you launch the app – All About Cell, Interactive Activities, and Videos. All About Cell offers you an in-depth understanding of what cells look like when viewed up close, their structure, and functions. This section comes with each topic in a question format that the user has to tap to learn more. Once you are in the topic, you can explore further and learn in detail. The Interactive Activities section allows you to test your understanding through a quiz, word search, and flash cards. The flash cards that are part of the activities are the perfect way for students to review and retain material. Each picture comes with concise information about that part of the cell. Word search will help students refresh their memory about all the cell parts and even help them remember the spellings! The Videos section of the app takes the user right into a cell and gives a microscopic view of a cell. The visually stunning videos are sure to capture every student’s attention and turn even the most boring lesson on cells, fun!

My Thoughts

imageThe more I discover apps for the iPad, the more I am impressed with what we can find.   The Cell and Cell Structure is a perfect app to teach middle-school biology about cells and their structures.    This app will help your child to discover the wonderful world of cells by simply learning through videos, 3D images and clear explanations.

At this moment in time, my kids are probably too young for this particular app.  However, my ten years old has expressed the desire to become a doctor in the future so having this app will help him to understand and comprehend how cells works.   What I particularly like about this app is that it presents various cells and explains the differences between them. 

I like the presentation of the app as well.  It is very different from what I have encountered so far and I am quite impressed with the 3D images included.   Various videos are also part of the app.  These videos will explain the mitosis in animal and plant cells and will transport you inside a cell (whether animal or plant).   More videos will be included in the future as well.  image

The app is very interactive and you will learn quite a bit about cells with it.   I am quite impressed with all the images included in this app.   As I am writing this I have the Cell Theory page under my eyes and I can see the various components of the cells.   The one from the human cell is particularly explicit and I recognize the various parts we have learned from our lessons last year about the human body.   Quite interesting to see them in bright color and so well designed.   I also like the comparison between the eukaryotic versus the prokaryotic cells.    Though the sounds is a bit annoying, I love to see their differences with only one glance.  And the way they have designed the Venn diagram is quite original too!   At first you see the information in two circles but if you merge the two circles together, the information is reorganized to show which parts are similar between the plant cell and animal cell.   It is well done!

Also included in this app are flash cards for revision, a word search as well as a quiz to test their knowledge.

In conclusion, the Cell and Cell Structure app is a great addition for your homeschool apps.   Your student will learn quite a bit about cells and will more than likely know more than other biology students on them.   And right now, the Cell and Cell Structure app is available for purchase at iTunes for the price of 1.99$ (which is an introductory price since the regular price would be 3.99$).
