iAmino - the reference and learning tool for amino acids

Are you a student? Do you want a reference and learning tool for amino acids? Do you study in the field of medicine, chemistry, biology or other fields where amino acids are important? Then iAmino is perfectly suited for you.

iAmino was designed with just two goals in mind:

1 - Learning the amino acids

iAmino helps you to pick up the amino acids and their most important facts in a funny and easy way. Sorting and grouping, images and a clear and simple interface support the learning process.

2 - Quick offline reference

iAmino is a fast and easy to use offline reference. It gives you detailed information about the 21 proteinogenic amino acids, including:

- Chemical structures
- Three letter code
- One letter code
- Polarity
- Acidity
- Isoelectric Point
- pK-Values
- if the amino acid is essential
- Codons
- Hydropathy index
- Molar mass
- Search by codon ( genetic decoder, you can
search by RNA codon and get the corresponding
amino acid that is coded by the DNA )

Although it costs just little money - iAmino will support you and gives you a helping hand in mastering the amino acids. iAmino is perfectly suited for students - it was designed by students for their own use.

Very Nice App


I like this program, and does everything it claims to do. If you need to learn the structures, symbols, and properties of the amino acids, this is a useful app.
Since my original review, they have added additional information including codons, and a simple codon search which allows for the translation of a nucleic acid sequence into its corresponding amino acids. I hope the developer continues to improve it with updates, especially useful would be the ability to view all the AAs at once in their various categories without scrolling.
This is a definite 5-star reference now, and is a great bargain. Anyone taking genetics, biochem, molecular bio, or in need of quick access to amino acid data and structures should try this app out.

Well done.


I'm enjoying the updated info in the new version and the included wiki link for each of the aminos. Nice update, 5-star app for sure.

Original review:

A great little refrence tool that does what it says it will do and looks and runs well to boot. For $0.99 you can't go wrong.

In future updates it might be nice if they included a bit of info on the roles of the different aminos and perhaps a brief explaination of the chemical bonds and how they work, but I certainly won't me complaining if they don't as that could easily become a differet app altogether.

"Chem Touch" offers more for only $0.99


^^^ The layout here is more spacious than chem touch's but this doesn't include nucleic acids and detail on all elements of the periodic table. Had I realized the chem touch already provided the amino acid info, I never would have purchased this $3 app. Safe to say it is no longer on my touch.
