Chemistry undergraduate students are required to master the theory of quantum mechanics as the basic requirement to study the properties of the submicroscopic particle. However many studies showed the students difficulties to bring the quantum mechanical concept to the macroscopic world and vise versa. The use of computer visualization tool will very useful for teaching and learning the quantum concept, especially electron and its related atomic orbitals. This technological report paper demonstrates some of the Android-based applications i.e FuncXY, TriPlot 3D Graphing, and Graphing calculator to effectively, quickly, and accurately convert wave functions into various hydrogen atomic orbital visualizations. By selecting spherical coordinate and entering wave equation, these smartphone graphical devices visualize three-dimensional atomic orbitals. Users are also easy to rotate, zoom and manipulate the object. Finally,these user friendly plotters are very recommended to assist chemistry educators in teaching quantum mechanics. Keywords: Computer-Based Learning, Quantum Chemistry, Atomic Orbital Visualization
