Ratings and Reviews

Some utility but needs some work


Wanted to have something for my organic 1 semester nursing students to use. It is fine except it is not always responsive to every screen touch. It often selects items as if to copy text rather than selecting function. Also, most chem sketch types of programs allow one to clean up length and angle of bonds. I can't find this function.

We're is the "periodic table" button on iPhone


Were is it? I looked for the button an it wasn't there, can you update it so i can click on the button I was looking for

Carbon is so useless


Carbon can't have a bond with another one element, except for oxygen, its so useless, but i love the rest of the Elemental app

Developer Response

Try the single bond tool and tap on the carbon you want to add a bond too. Or choose an element then hold on the atom and drag out to choose the placement of the new atom. The bond will be put in automatically for you. Hope that helps!
