Molecules Description

With the Molecules iOS app, you can learn all about these tiny specks without the need for expensive equipment like microscopes. Every molecule is represented in a 3D image that can be manipulated by you with the help of your fingers. 

Just pinch to zoom in and out or rotate it by swiping left or right. The structures can be examined in two different ways — ball and stick figures or space-filling visualization mode.

Pros

Download and learn about new atoms from RCSB Protein Data Bank or NCBI PubChem. Save and view them whenever you want or create custom ones.

Cons

The Molecules app is buggy and requires major fixing. There are no structural annotations describing the atoms. Needs more features.

    Still not fixed as of June, 2013. It cannot even use files previously saved via iTunes! Anyone have a viable replacement to suggest? This worked great on the iPad 2 two months ago. The PubChem access is awful: e.g., ethanol is there, but this app cannot even find it! Finding simple substances like water, methane, ammonia, formaldehyde, hexane, ethanol, and so on worked great before. Now they either do not show up at all or are hidden as bizarre numbers that make no sense even to a chemist. And you cannot even add the common name if you get lucky and find the molecule you want. As a chemist, I am very disappointed with this serious decline in capability. I will be looking for a substitute. Please fix this screwup! Almost worthless now. Please fix the blunders and make this usable again!

    Love this app but it needs some features updated and bug fixes badly. Needs iPhone 5 larger screen format. Needs a bug fix for small black bar at top of app that causes bottom of the molecules list to partly cut off from view. Needs double, single and triple bonds to be shown as 1, 2 or 3 bars in the atom and stick model mode. Needs much better at searching for new molecules. Needs an element color key and/or option to have atoms labeled in the models. Needs to be able to search for enzymes and biological molecules like ATP by their common abbreviations. Needs to have a place in the app where you can see the chemical formulas for small molecules in your list and the amino acid sequence for proteins and enzymes in your list. Also would be cool if it could represent proteins with ribbon models.

    This is a straight forward app that lets you look at 3D models of molecules. I'm not a chemist or scientist, but this app was easy for me to use to learn something about nutrition molecules I was interested in. If you know what you are looking for, type it into the search and voila, it's on screen that instant. The app is 100 per cent free, unburdened by ads, purchased content, etc. The person who wrote and provided this app is awesome - Thanks!
