Electrical Engineering Apps



ElectroDroid is a simple and powerful collection of electronics tools and references. The app has also support for plugins to expand functionality of the application .

EveryCircuit Free

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!



The most downloaded graphing calculator for the iPhone/iPod is now available for the iPad. The GUI has been completely rewritten to take advantage of the iPad’s bigger screen. Graphing Calculator HD turns your iPad into an intuitive high-resolution function plotter and scientific calculator.

Electrical ToolKit

This is a smart & handy tool for all Electrical & Electronics engineers, electricians, technicians, students etc...This app is simple to use and smart enough to recalculate circuit values when user edits any input data.

Ohm's Law


Two common calculators for electronics/electrical use: Ohm's law calculator/Watt's Law calculator: figures any 2 unknown values given 2 known values;Resistor calculators: figures bands given value or value given bands. For 3, 4, & 5 band resistors.


Electronics Toolkit


Provides a useful interface for calculating unknown quantities in the fields of electronics and electrical engineering. Current features include:
Resistor colour codes - tells you the resistance, tolerance, upper and lower values, and E-series information for any colour-coded resistor.


PlanGrid is a free app that lets you bring all your project plans, specs and photos to your iPad. Sign up for a free account on and drawings you upload will automatically sync to iPads in the field.


What is a podcast?

It's a package of multimedia files that can be downloaded from the Internet and played on a computer or mobile device.
