Minds On Physics the App - Part 1

The app version of the Minds On Physics program is currently available as six different apps with each app covering a different set of topics. All apps have now been released. We are currently in the process of releasing updated versions with a friendlier interface, bug fixes, and improved graphics. Version information for the various apps can be found on our Timelines page. The Android version of the apps (for Android smart phones and Android tablets) are published at the Google Play Store. The Chrome OS version of the apps (for Chromebooks) are published at the Chrome Web Store. The iOS version of the apps (for iPhones and iPads) are published at the Apple iTunes Store. And the Mac version of the apps (for Apple Macintosh computers) are published at the Mac App Store. Links to the pages at the stores where the apps can be found are located on the Purchase page. The topics covered in Part 1 of the six-part series are listed below. 

CAUTION: As of this writing, Version 2.0 or higher is currently available at the online stores. Version 2.0 uses an entirely rebuilt database that does not talk well with the database used in version 1.0. Thus, those who are updating to version 2.0 or later from version 1.0 will need to first delete their app from their device. Then they can visit the store to obtain the free upgrade to the newer version. But before wiping your device clean of version 1.0, be sure to record, email, or print your success codes. They will be lost once the app is deleted from your device.
