Pocket Penguins by California Academy of Sciences.

2011. Version 1.0. Free

For every kid (and adult) who has ever wanted to carry a penguin exhibit around in their pocket, now there’s Pocket Penguins, an app by the California Academy of Sciences that provides a real-time view of their African penguin exhibit.  The app lets you switch between above ground and underwater cameras as you watch the penguins swim, dive, eat and play.  It’s a great educational app that will entertain a wide age-range.  The app is free but a Wi-Fi is needed and data rates may apply.  Still, it’s a great way to add to what students are learning in school or just to pique a child’s interest in the natural world.
