Want to try out the Arduino development before spending more money on the Arduino board, Arduino shield and some electronic components? If you are an Apple iOS device owner, you can spend just USD2.99 for a basic software based Arduino simulator. There are some in-app purchases that make your development more interesting (e.g. Arduino and LCD, Arduino and Motors, LED Matrix and etc.)
Just drag and place the wires in the correct positions to connect between Arduino and the breadboard. Once satisfied, you can export the tested code and email it. The code can be easily copied and used in an actual project from the email.
You can purchase or read more about this Arduino simulator from this iTunes link.
