Description

Molecules is an application for viewing three-dimensional renderings of molecules and manipulating them using your fingers. You can rotate the molecules by moving your finger across the display, zoom in or out by using two-finger pinch gestures, or pan the molecule by moving two fingers across the screen at once. These structures can be viewed in both ball-and-stick and spacefilling visualization modes.

New molecules can be downloaded from either the RCSB Protein Data Bank (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb), an international repository of biological molecules and their 3-D structures, or NCBI's PubChem (http://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov), a public database of compounds. Molecules can be downloaded directly to your handheld device and stored there for later viewing.

Custom molecular structures can be downloaded to the application via iTunes file sharing, or through the use of custom URL formats. For more details, please visit our website.

Molecules is a BSD-licensed open source project.

Clean, logical interface with on line access to pubchem and protein databases.

Incredible

While it lacks some detail (type of bond, etc) the overall app is really neat

Really cool

It is really interesting! I love it!
The only thing that should be modified is the rotation code. I noticed that the focal point changes when you drag the molecule with 2 fingers, so when you rotate it again, the molecule flies off. Maybe keep the focal point at the center of the molecule, and just shift the point of view.
