  100 Scientists

About this app


This free educational application presents you one hundred remarkable scientists who shaped our world. These inventors, engineers, physicists, chemists, physicians, philosophers and mathematicians have discovered the modern science's most important and fundamental principles and created the most ingenious devices, tools and medicines. Their discoveries and theories helped us to better understand the reality and the human nature; consequently, they all deserve our great respect and consideration. Here are a few famous scientists and a few details about their work:


Albert Einstein 1879 - 1955.
Einstein's theories of special & general relativity delivered a remarkable transformation in our understanding of light, gravity and time, while special relativity yielded the most famous equation in history, E = mc2. Einstein explained the photoelectric effect and provided powerful evidence that atoms and molecules actually exist.


Isaac Newton 1643 - 1727.
Profoundly changed our understanding of nature with his law of universal gravitation and his laws of motion; invented calculus, the field of mathematics that dominates the physical sciences; generalized the binomial theorem; built the first ever reflecting telescope; showed sunlight is made of all the colors of the rainbow.


Charles Darwin 1809 - 1882.
Authored one of the most famous books in history, On the Origin of Species, in which he described and provided evidence for the theory of evolution by natural selection.


Galileo Galilei 1564 - 1642.
The father of modern science, Galileo discovered the first moons ever known to orbit another planet and that the Milky Way is made of stars. He rationalized how objects are affected by gravity, stated the principle of inertia, and proposed the first theory of relativity.


All the high-resolution images we have included in this free educational application came from well-known free web sources; however, all of the pictures were tuned a little bit in order to make them clearer. Some of them were colorized by using some free web tools. The detailed information about each scientist came from wikipedia.org and other public sources, while the background music was downloaded from freemusicarchive.org/ music/ Antnio_Bizarro (composed by Antonio Bizarro, the album The Dark Room). This app  (portrait orientation) works fine on most mobile devices (Android 8 or newer).



How it works

The intro page contains four small buttons: Launch, Settings, Info and Our apps.

Launch starts the exploration of our collection. There are three navigation buttons at the bottom: Left, Right and List - which are self-explanatory. The upper-left one, Home, sends you to the intro page, while the upper-right one, Details, shows you the Wikipedia page (English) of the current scientist.

Settings displays the settings page; there are a few options you can enable or disable, like text to speech, background music, image transition speed and intro buttons description. Also, you can set the volume of the background music and the transparency of the navigation buttons.

Info displays this description page.

Our apps shows the full list of our applications from Google Play.

Notice that a tap on each scientist's image will enlarge it; one more tap restores its initial size.
