    Educational simulations are breaking out from traditional areas of use and emerging as an increasingly important tool for education. Even though, they are very practical tool for assisting in the classrooms, they have been supported mostly on desktop environments and didn’t fulfill the desired adoption. For this reason we created the mobile application that is a tool for presenting physics simulations. It is supported by different devices, including mobile phones and tablets, taking advantage of the different display size, and computational power characteristics of the devices. To make this application reachable not just from desktop computers, we used jQuery Mobile, framework that is optimized for touch devices. We have also provided the multiuser support of the simulations, offering users the possibility to manipulate shared real-time simulations. For that purpose we implemented WebSockets, technology that is facilitating live content and the creation of real-time simulations.
