I guess the main reason is I don't have an Android tablet -- but for those that do this sounds very interesting -- have you used it yourself?

Why not Droid Tesla, an interactive application to Android with SPICE engine.

I waited for ages -- I found it hard to justify buying the iPad -- now I wish I had got it sooner (although I am glad I got the iPad 2 rather than the iPad 1). I really do totally recommend this for business and pleasure...

Frank, thanks for the pointers, great stuff. Another reason to buy and make converts of people like me that sit on the fence and wait for lower price on iPads.

The website for iCircuit is http://icircuitapp.com/ . There the author gives credits to a similar circuit applet written in Java by Paul Falstad that is available for free at http://www.falstad.com/circuit/ . Try it out! More educational math and physics applets by the same author are available at http://www.falstad.com/mathphysics.html .

I guess the thing about this one is that it mixes analog and digital -- plus the usage mode is such that even absolute beginners can make it work. Also you can turn on a display of the current flowing through the wires, also color to indicate voltage -- all of which is great for beginners understanding what's going on...

Hmm, that looks interesting, though the devil will be in the detailed usability, of course. If you really want to run a simulator on a 10" tablet, though, why not get a Fujitsu Q550 and run the excellent (and free!) LTspice simulator on it? Plus all the other PC stuff you (or at least I) can't do without.
