    1. Hi Michael,

      Great Podcast! Will 3D Brain and Brain Tutor 3D be released for Android?


    2. Emma: both of those apps are made by someone other than me so you’d have to check their websites. Here’s the URL for 3D Brain:

      Here’s the site for Brain Tutor 3D:

      Hope this helps!

    3. Thanks Michael! Starting my Graduate Diploma in Psychology this year (in Australia) and I am really pleased I found your podcast and also the Psyc Test Hero App!


    4. Another fan from Australia! Love the accent!

      Hello Michael, a word of thanks for your podcast, I have found it informative and interesting. Thanks for your efforts. I would like to suggest that you do some podcasts on carl rogers or abraham maslow, like the one you did on Skinner.

    6. Thanks. That’s a great idea – do an “audio collage” using Rogers or Maslow. I guess I chose Skinner because he’s a little more misunderstood than these two…although it’s true that many students leave a psych class thinking that the only thing Rogers ever contributed to psychology was to tell therapists to say to their clients, “What do YOU think about that?”. I might follow-up on this. Thanks for the suggestion!

      Hi! I would to know when will these applications become available for Windows 8 Store? Windows 8 tablet users are growing fast considering the convenience of the features windows 8 have which Ipad/Iphone doesn't. I'm a Psychology Major. I just really hope that this would be available on Windows 8

      The compassion of having these information available for everyone is amazing. I'm one of those who really appreciate being able to access these information.

      I hope you'll continue your work where true knowledge isn't monopolized.

    8. Hi Michael, so glad that I can across your site and android apps in time for my psychology course. First year student from Australia loving your work and youtube clips. Keep up the great work that you do. You're a great example of passion within the field.

    9. Thanks so much Michelle! I appreciate your kind words.

      Dear Michael

      I am looking for apps to use in play therapy that will work on an ipad.
      Any ideas? It is for my psychology masters in using technology in therapy with children.
      Thanks for the informative site.
