I am learning way more than I thought possible I have no background in electronics or electricity. 63 years old and I wanted to build a couple circuits. This is showing me how to draw a readable schematic. I can see if what I'm putting together will work or not. Change values of components before turning them into toast. On my phone, I can show someone what I'm trying to do and ask for suggestions. Well worth the price for the full blown version. Hours well spent with this and looking forward to many more.
Amazing App So easy to play with. I have VERY limited electronics experience but it has helped me to understand many concepts. Could do with more space, labels and the ability to make a component match the data sheets available on the Internet. eg transistors. I can't figure out how to make a 2N3904. But it keeps improving! I've had it a few years now and I would hate to loose it! Love the new printout capabilities!
Free version is too limited The free version will only simulate 5 parts. When one of those is power and another is ground, that only leaves 3 parts to use. Best circuit you can simulate is an led with a resistor and switch. Not enough to give me a real trial of the app. It should allow at least 10 parts in the free version. I refuse to pay $15 for an app I can't try first.
Just buy it. I'm halfway between beginning and intermediate in electronics and trying to "figure it out". This is the greatest app of all time for me. I'm a very critical dude and all I can say is this thing is near perfection. They seem to have thought of everything. The built in oscilloscope is sensationally effective. Circuit design on the phone is ADDICTIVE. Even better, the thing takes about 4 seconds to learn how to use. I didn't feel that way with other SPICE tools I've used. The only downside is the price. Once I got over the fact that I was buying "software" and not a crappy app, $15 is minimal. Highly recommended.
24-hour trial? Really? Guys, was that a joke? A thorough user needs at least 15 days. In 24 hours (6 or 8 actually, I'm a human who needs to sleep, eat and work) I: managed to create a bandpass filter; learned that the app lacks important UI commands like select all; and that there's only an ideal op-amp, no real life toys here. I might be wanting to pay for it some day in the future, but now the trial's over and I still have no idea what I should pay for. It really is a pity because I really liked how smooth it was.
Fun and educational Took a circuit I had in a book and had it together in no time in this app. Even made up a few for fun. Missing some things, but guess that's in the paid version. FYI don't scroll to fast or you will miss some parts. LOL
