The Multisim Touch for the iPad is an all new product developed specifically for students, educators, and engineers who need powerful simulation and intuitive design tools available on their iPad. This native SPICE simulation and design app allows users to quickly build circuits with a library of common devices and visualize performance in an intuitive graphing interface. With this tool users are able to begin designing circuits whenever inspiration occurs.

Multisim Touch utilizes DropboxTM and e-mail connectivity to allow designs that begin on the tablet to be shared with other Multisim Touch users or exported to the desktop edition of Multisim for advanced design and verification capabilities only available on the PC. Essentially, Multisim Touch is a portable extension of the advanced power of Multisim on the desktop....for only $4.99

Building a circuit is simply a matter of tapping components from the component bins and dragging on to the workspace. Simply by tapping a terminal and a destination on the circuit, you can complete a wire connection. Multisim Touch supports rotate components, voltage and current probes, setting component values, undo/redo, and many other standard features of the desktop edition of Multisim you're used to. These Multisim Touch Getting Started Videos give a good introduction to creating and simulating a design.
