Explore 150 chemicals in a virtual lab in the BEAKER app. Add in chemicals, heat it up, and shake your device to start reactions. Pour them out to clean it up. Or team up with your friends to pour chemicals between each other via AirMix™.
Use virtual Match, Lid and Burner to assist your experiment. Or get the extra five tools - Blender, Cooler, Separator, Filter and Meter to do even more complex operations.
Start (tap or hold on chemicals to add)
- CaO + H2O
- K + H2O (fire)
- Na + H2O (fire)
- Al + Br2 (fire)
Ignite (swipe your finger and hold, like striking a match)
- Ignite Mg, C, Al
- Ignite H2 + O2 (explosion)
Heat Up (swipe in from the lower right corner to turn on Burner)
- Boil Water (H2O)
- Heat Fe + HNO3 (color transformation)
Shake (shake to accelerate reactions)
- CuSO4 + H2O + Mg (color transformation)
- AgNO3 + H2O + Cu (precipitation)
- AgNO3 + H2O + NaCl (precipitation)
AirMix* (nearby BEAKERs will pair automatically)
- Pour Na into Cl2 (fire)
- Pour CH3COOH into NaHCO3 + Blue (bubbles)
- Pour NaCl + H2O into AgNO3 + H2O (precipitation)
* AirMix requires an Internet connection and geolocation services.

Ratings and Reviews
Coolest app since the launch of the iPod Touch
In my opinion, as someone that likes to experiment with colors and chemicals but doesn’t have unending resources because I do it on my own dime, this app is a winner. It is free and who knows for how long. The app also is very genuine and creative which reminds me of the good old iPod Touch days when apps were being released left and right that made the touch sensitivity and accelerometer such fascinating capabilities. I hope to see more updates. Right now I’m too content with the app to suggest anything other than future bug fixes. Great job to the developer! Shouts out to all the chemistry geeks and nerds
Buggy interface & bad chemistry
TL;DR: horribly amateurish, I don’t know why this was even featured on the App Store front page.
The idea of an app like this is interesting (which is why I downloaded it), but
* UI is buggy.
** Occasionally the circle on the top right corner disappears, & I won’t be able to add anything unless I empty out the beaker.
** The monitor thing is buggy. Enough said.
* Bad physics.
** When lid is closed & beaker is turned upside down, liquid doesn’t come out (as expected), but somehow solids could slip through the cracks and leave the beaker.
** Solids sometimes change size for no reason. (To reproduce: add as much cesium as possible.)
* Bad chemistry (despite correctly representing *some* reactions). This is the worst part that makes it impossible to enjoy the game.
** CsOH and sulfuric acid coexists in solution without forming CsSO4 and water. Ridiculous. General lack of acid-base reactions.
** Tried doing a thermite reaction, but all the aluminum burned out and nothing happened to the ferrite at all. (I’d expect a little of that to react even if they aren’t finely ground powder)
** Nothing happens to aluminum in concentrated KOH solution.
** Nothing is left when aluminum, magnesium etc burns.
And so on.
What is the point of this?
Great but a few problems
I can’t get AirMix to work and I’ve tried everything. I looked it up and said to allow it to use location but I can’t find the app in my settings at all. Other than that I love using it. However, I wish there were maybe more liquids to mix because I’ve tried putting a bunch of liquids together and hardly ever get a reaction. Also, it could be cool if there was a way that we could get solids to dissolve in liquids if they are able to be dissolved. It’s a great game and I spend a lot of time on it.
