PhET Android app (android/chromebook science/math simulations) -- free until 10/31. Plus YMMV bonus google play coupon

+72 Deal Score
7,496 Views
Android App Store (not iOS) has the PhET app for free, usually $0.99 [google.com]

Run by UC-Boulder, PhET is a website that has bunches of simulations for science and mathematics. The app contains all of the HTML5 sims, making them available offline, plus is updated as new HTML5 sims are developed. I'm a high school science teacher and use them regularly.

HEADS UP: If you've downloaded the 1.0 app, they've abandoned it. Upgrade to this ASAP while it's free.

YMMV territory: after I put the app on my phone, I got a popup from google play giving me a $3 off $3 coupon, which I used to purchase Stardew Valley! Sheep I have no idea if this is replicable, but thought I'd share (and brag about my deal on Stardew Valley -- thanks powerfuldoppler).

EDIT: after seeing posts, it's unlikely that this coupon was triggered by the app "purchase," as only some posters are receiving coupons and nobody's received the same as I. App's still useful, though, especially if you have students (or are one).

Thanks for sharing OP.

I installed it on 2 phones. One had no pop up, the other had a pop up for 1 month free of Google Play Pass.

No coupon here, either. I've never paid for an app, so that might contribute.

I installed, but haven't opened the app yet. I got an email immediately stating:

"Ground control here. We've spotted a $2 credit just for you. Go ahead and put it toward any app, game, or in-app item over $2 on Google Play.*"

Thanks for the info (this holds to everyone else as well). I've updated my OP and title to reflect this.

FWIW, my coupon had similar language to yours, d2dpcs.

Cheers

Gotta say, this is one of the most useful posts I've seen in a while! Thanks! Didn't know PhET existed until today, since we're practically home schooling our own kids in NM, very helpful!

Wow, 62 thumbs up and barely a double digit amount of posts! One of the weirder threads on SD!

For my own curiosity, are people giving thumbs up because of PhET being free or because you're getting the Play store coupon?
