"iCell" by HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology- FREE

This is a great app for exploring cells in a 3 dimesional viewing experience. It is great for learning the basic of cell organelles. One of the first Biology Apps that I have used it proided me with a great, fun, interactive way to leaarn about organelles.

"iCell gives students, teachers, and anyone interested in biology a 3D view inside a cell.  Included are examples of three types of cells:  animal, plant, and bacteria.  Learn about the various parts of the cell, which biologists,  biochemists, and DNA researchers at the HudsonAlpha Institute study and use to advance the limits of biotechnology.
You can use your finger to tap on parts of the cell to select and zoom in on that particular organelle.  Each organelle comes with a name and a short description of its function in the
cell.
For a better view of each cell, hold down one finger on the screen,
and drag to rotate around the cell or selected organelle.  You can zoom in and
out by pinching or flaring with two fingers at once"

PHYTO -FREE http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/phyto/id333237649?mt=8
Phyto helps you learn to identify phytoplankton and their proper pronunciation. It includes the most common salt water phytoplankton. The program consists of two main modes. The first mode is a listing of the different species and includes different images taken with a light microscope and the ability to hear
the correct pronunciation.  The second mode is a flash card  game to help you improve your phytoplankton identification skills. 

MITOSIS                                      -FREE
http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/mitosis/id348184626?mt=8

How do cells divide to grow new hair, repair your skin, or strengthen your bones? Mitosis walks you through the process of cell division, and explains
everything that happens along the way. You'll usher cells through mitosis with  your fingers, learning about what happens in each phase of the process. You can also look at images of actual cells dividing under a microscope and see the actual structures you've studied
