Despite what the name of this app suggests, I think you’ll agree that when viewed on the full screen of your iPad, these monsters aren’t so mini! The “monsters” included in this visually stunning app mainly consist of insects that have been imaged with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). This high-magnification and high-resolution imaging technique allows app users to appreciate such fine details as the scales of a silverfish or the minute structures of the beetle antenna, for instance. The app imaging library contains 53 different critters in total, although the total actual number of images exceeds this count (as there are more than one photo per organism). The images are beautiful, not to mention a lot of fun to look at. A warning, though: you may never be able to look at your favorite (or not-so-favorite) insect neighbors the same way again!
