This Study considered the availability of smart phone environmental apps that could be used in the teaching of environmental engineering and environmental science. Several apps in the field of noise, water and air were found to be freely available on the Internet. Two such apps, on noise measurement and water quality analysis were tested by students. Positive results from the tests reveal the potential for the use of such apps in the teaching of environmental engineering and environmental science.
