This app has a great periodic table, with pictures of masses of elements and everything. (Spoiler alert: most are shiny and gray.) What sets it apart from other, similar apps is the Nova documentary and molecule builder also thrown in. I am shocked that it is free.

Unfortunate glitch

I'm using a mouse and keyboard (no touchscreen), and I'm noticing what must be a glitch in the program. In the "Explore" screen (the interactive periodic-table), when I click on an element, nothing happens. The table simply shifts to the left or right in anticipation of more detailed information or a dialog-box, but nothing appears. I think the "Explore" feature would be one of the highlights of the App, and it doesn't work (with a mouse). Otherwise it's an exceptional App. I can only give it 3 stars.

Nova IS science

Great app from great authority on science. Make sure you spend time navigating the app. Especially the periodic elements.

Great, Great, Great

I've always been one for immersive, educational apps, and this hits the nail on the head! It's beautifully done and snappy.

Where was this tool when I was learning Chemistry?

A great learning tool for any Chemistry student, or anyone interested in Chemistry. Its a well done app that illustrates the value of computer based learning tools.

You actually get to build atoms and chemical structures. Best Chemistry app out there!!!

Good educational tool

Very cool data visualization. Some of the graphics are a bit jagged in the main menu though, but the overall experience looks great. Please also support snapped view.

Incredibly clever app... educational, yet genuinely fun and interesting. Well-designed, nice UI.
