LEGO app for iPhone & iPod by Brick Tub

Can’t think of any new things to build with your tub of LEGO bricks? Want step by step instructions forย fun LEGO brick creations? Well, if you have an iPhone or iPod you may want to try out this new LEGO app from Brick Tub! Isn’t technology great? ๐Ÿ™‚

The Brick Tub LEGO app was created by Ethan Smith and his dad to help LEGO fans with building ideas, using only the #6166 LEGO Ultimate Brick Tub. So even if you only have basic bricks and a smaller LEGO collection this LEGO app will give you plenty of ideas to improve your building skills.

The Brick Tub LEGO app is also great for road-trips, airline-flights, at work, at school, or anytime you miss your full LEGO collection. All the instruction data is stored on your device, so it works great on an iPod Touch or when your iPhone doesn’t have reception.

Brick Tub uses real life photos of LEGO bricks for each step. This makes Brick Tub easier to use than other LEGO apps, as you can see what the LEGO model looks like in real life, not just a digital representation of it. Here is an introductory video on how the Brick Tubย LEGO app works:

Since Brick Tub only uses one LEGO set the building possibilities are limited, but still there is a great variety of animals, vehicles, and buildings. Also,ย Ethan is very open to feedback and ideas; if there are any LEGO models you would like to see in Brick Tub letย him know. You can read more about the Brick Tub LEGO app on their website at, and buy the app at the App Store for less than a dollar: Brick Tub LEGO App

Ethan was kind enough to give us a handful of promo codes so our readers can try out his LEGO app and give him feedback. If you are willing to write a short review of the Brick Tub LEGO app in the comment section below, just ask me and I will send you a promo code. Please remember that I only have aย few promo codes, so first come first serve. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So grab your iPhone or iPod, your LEGO brick tub and LEGO app, and get busy building! If you don’t have the #6166 LEGO Ultimate Brick Tub, you can get it easily at department stores like Wal-Mart and Target, or online at and Below are LEGO tub listings on Amazon:

Hm… I’m planning to write a couple of other posts on LEGO apps, so I will keep an eye out for compatibility with Blackberry devices. And of course if someone knows any LEGO apps for Blackberry, please share them here. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’d love to check out this app with my son. We love building with basic bricks (perhaps even more so than fancy sets with specialized pieces). If you still have any promo codes, please let me know. I’d be happy to write a review.

Robb, promo code sent! ๐Ÿ˜‰
