Did you ever wonder why the periodic table is shaped the way it is, what gives each element its own unique set of properties, or even how elements combine to make everyday objects such as a cup of coffee? With “NOVA Elements,” explore an interactive periodic table, play a game hosted by David Pogue, or watch the two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements.”
What's New in Version 1.3
This release contains minor content updates to reflect the current names and classifications of elements.
If you're unable to hear audio, go to your iPad's "Settings" menu and select "General," "Use Side Switch to:," "Mute." Then, turn mute off on the side switch.
Let down by video to working
The actual periodic table is fine, with pictures and a little blurb about each element. However, it is let down by the fact that none of the video content is actually contained in the app. Instead, it is streamed from the PBS web site - which doesn't serve video content outside of the United States. Given I grabbed the app from the Australian App Store, this is a little disappointing.
Video Not Working
The video information will not work out of the USA.
The app is so fun
