In addition to the apps we’ve also included a new set of PDFs from MAKE – they recently released MAKE for devices that can read PDFs so we think that’s an extremely nice gift one could give this holiday season for the iPad toting’ engineer, student, tinkerer and more! We suggest buying the PDFs and putting them on a SD card to save and to give!
Electronic Toolbox HD – iPad Edition. Electronic Toolbox combines electronic reference material with calculation and conversion tools in one handy app. Whether a professional or hobbyist, the app gives users a collection of the most important electrical information right at their fingertips.
Ohm’s Calculator allows you to enter any two values of resistance, amperage, voltage, or power and receive the remaining two values via Ohm’s Law.
Electricity Electronics Magnetism. Hx Electricity, Electronics, Magnetism: This encyclopedia is about the discovery of three phenomena that have evolved the way we live and without which many of the benefits and amenities of today did not exist, will learn from their discovery, scientists, and how this tool has been used now and in history.
PDF versions of MAKE. Every volume of MAKE is loaded with exciting projects that help you make the most of the technology in your life. MAKE is a celebration of your right to tweak, hack, and bend technology to your will. And now, you can take that party with you on whatever device supports PDF! The PDF version of MAKE is available for only $9.99, and our 4-volume annual box sets are just $35.99. This is a great opportunity to pick up hard-to-find or out-of-print back issues.
