Engaging way to learn chemistry. The way the screen is rendered is for low resolution devices though. It'd be nice if some items were in vector or at least fixed sizes.More
The best app in the whole universe easy, creative and wonderful. great features and easy to navigate and not so much heavyMore
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.More
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.More
