The Experimenter iPhone app is chock full of timeless backyard science experiments. Sure, you could troll YouTube and find similar material, but the folks at Cramzy have done all the tedious work for you. And it’s nice to have everything in one simple interface. Each experiment is fun, entertaining, and sure to spark interest in those lucky enough to participate. None of the materials in the 14 experiments are too exotic and most should be available from your local corner market. The video demonstrations are well done and each comes with an appropriate safety precaution. Be warned that this app is video intensive and weights in at a whopping 240MB. [via @gigamegawatts]
