About Cell World

The Cell World is a popular biology app for Android devices that is comprised of an interactive animation of the inside of a eukaryotic cell. As users navigate around the cell via the navigation controls and basic touchscreen mechanics, they can tap on specific features (such as various organelles, the cytoplasm, and the cytoskeleton) to display the feature’s name and a short description that is displayed at the bottom of the screen. At the same time, users can display a longer description by opening a panel from the side of the screen.
