Bacteria Guide is an educational app which provides a general information and basic knowledge of bacteria. The app covers five aspects of bacterial knowledge, including the bacterial morphology, bacterial growth and metabolism, basic bacterial genetics, laboratory techniques and the relationship between bacteria and human beings. Designed with the beautiful interactive illustrations, charts and appealing animations, the app makes the learning touchable and engaging. Integrated with an audible Bacteriology glossary, the app can help users to learn the details of knowledge together with the pronunciations of scientific terms.

The app is designed for both students and teachers who study or teach in Bacteriology, Microbiology or other biological related sciences. It is also suitable for amateurs to get a basic profile of bacteria and related information. For students, the app is the best illustrated instant note suitable for either the first time learning or revising before exams. For teachers, you can directly play the interactive illustrations and animations on a lecture room projector using the iPad's mirror displaying function. For general users, the app is also a very good reference to broaden your horizons to the Bacteriology and Microbiology area.

Ratings and Reviews



Nothing like the description I was expecting detailed animations and more in depth material, it is very basic, may be good if you know nothing, but if you want to learn or use this app as a supplement to your learning experience, don't bother. Also it is non refundable once purchased, not that 6.00$ is a lot of money but the description is very misleading as far as what you can expect when you actually download it. Don't waste your money! Use you tube or other websites instead, even if they go onto too much detail for whatever level you are at, you will find better animations and videos, as well as information by just using google. Sadly very disappointed!


Wasted potential

Beautiful app but the information it contains is extremely limited. Such a shame. I give it one star for being pricey; given the lack of content.


Not worth a penny

Save your money. This app is basically a few pages from a microbiology textbook displayed electronically. There is nothing interactive and no pictures just a few illustrations.
