It's really too bad that all you promote is iPad, especially considering that Apple is rapidly losing market share to Android. Forget "the rest of us", how 'bout articles and apps for "the most of us"?

I too have used and would like to see more apps like iCircuit. I would also like to see a pSpice tie-in app as well as a component EDA Librarian for iCircuit, so we could expand the 30+ components and families to include other glue logic, FPGA DSP and - why not - even tubes!

It would go a long way towards removing the iPad from toy status and turning it into a real work platform.

Let's hope, short of jail-breaking your device and running Linux variants on it, you could actually turn the iPAD (and other tablets) into a valuable workhorse type of highly portable tool.

Thanks for citing iCircuit. Most of the posts had to do with Electro-Mechanical apps or add-ons and viewers.

Why not some really productive tools that allow creation at first hand in the iOS domain rather than doing all the work on big desktops and saving the tablets to passing the work around for comment? Not to belittle that aspect. It is invaluable, but must we always be tied to our big computers?

Apps appear to be great but i did not see or could you recommend Pure 3D Model viewing or editing apps?

Very interesting selection of apps.  I suspect that the number of engineering apps will grow exponentially in the next 1-2 years.

I saw some good apps there, but would be more interested in android apps personally...or what might be to come for the new windows tablets.

How about iCircuit?  Well worth the ten bucks for iPhone / iPad.  Has over 30 devices available as well as a meter and oscilloscope.  There are some screenshots on their website at icircuitapp.com

I agree - RY as an App would be very useful.  I have a web application that I use for simple stress-strain calculations but would love to expand it to include RY equations. 



Go to http://analysischamp.com/links.htm for access to some useful web applications.

A web application at http://AnalysisChamp.com is capable of performing expression evaluation with complex unit conversion.  It includes a list of searchable units that can be entered as expressions and returned in desired units.  The webpage is formatted for desktop or mobile device screens and is free.  



I entered your example (assuming that "m" = meters and "um" = micrometers) and it returned 9.09E6.  It also has magnetic, luminescence, electric, viscocity, energy, force, mass, pressure, temperature, time, velocity and other unit types.

Thanks much for the link, MikeVV. That fact that it's free and formatted for mobile use is great.

Latest Analysis
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
Just in time for Earth Day, chemicals leader Bayer MaterialScience reported from the UTECH Europe 2015 polyurethane show on programs and applications using its materials to help reduce energy usage. The company also gave an update on its CO2-based PU as that eco-friendly material comes closer to production.
Solar and wind energy are becoming more viable as a source of energy on the electric grid. For decades, the major drawback to solar and wind was that they’re temperamental. A cloudy day kills solar and a still day renders the wind turbines useless. Automation tools, however, are providing a path to help these renewables become practical.
In honor of Earth Day, the National Security Agency has launched the STEM Recycling Challenge in Maryland schools to encourage kids to think about where the garbage they throw out every day actually goes. The agency has also introduced “Dunk,” a muscular blue cartoon recycling bin wearing shorts and sneakers.
