Comments:

Artificial Life:  This app goes through a simulation of how protozoa would evolve.  Several factors can be varied to change the simulation.

Audiobooks Free:  Some great science literature and sci-fi lit that can be pulled into any class free of charge

Charles Darwin Collection:  All of his writings under one click...simply fantastic!

Codon: Match the correct codon to the existing strand

Create:  Gives a real time count-down to time as thought by creationist and as millions of years.  It allows students to realize how long millions of years really is

Devolve me:  Silly app that takes a human's picture and de-evolves them to several human ancestors

DNA Blocks: Points are earned based on complementing bases

Gene Lab:  selection a phenotype for a creature to clone and mutate it

Get High Now:  Non-drug induced simulations to show how the mind is easily altered

iBrainWave:  A way to tune the brain?  Interesting conversation starter

iDarwin:  Excellent site about Darwin and evolution but it is in German

iSperm:  Several fun games that feature that only one sperm is necessary for fertilization and that it really is a race to the egg.  The strongest sperm survive.

iTattooYou:  Used to show how a tattoo machine works in very general terms during a discussion about the biology behind tattooing
