6. Interactive Periodic Table of Elements Free at Amazon!

This starts out as a standard Periodic Table of the Elements, but becomes much more. With a tap of a button the entire chart becomes color-coded to clearly demonstrate how various chemical properties are distributed across all the elements.

Not just the family and metal or non-metal, but state (gas, liquid or solid), electronegativity, radioactivity and more. In addition a slider allows you to see the states and a temperature you select, and even choose a year to see what elements had been discovered at that point in time.

5. Music Sheet Workout Free on Amazon!

One of the toughest things about playing music is learning to play the notes in a timely manner. Improve your sight-reading skills with this musical workout app for Android. Notes are displayed along a staff–mirroring how they would look on actual sheet music–and your job is to identify them as fast as possible. Use the practice mode to review your lessons, then try your hand at the sight-reading quiz. Enter in the correct multiple-choice answers via touchscreen, then review your scores on the statistics page.
