Customer Reviews


This application is incredibly intuitive and easy to use on an iPad, the structures look perfect and can be easily edited. I wanted to use this program for preparing formal reports on laboratory work (mechanisms, synthesis, analysis, etc.) and this application has fulfilled those desires, while handing me a gorgeous layout and format for use on my iPad Air. I would have paid way more than 9.99 for this application, so this is a great deal for any chemist or colleague in research. Thank you PerkinElmer, you have seriously made my day!

Great App

This app makes learning structures fun. It is easy to use and intuitive. It currently does not name the structures as far as I can see. Very happy with this purchase.

Good, but

Requires some much needed features like the flexibility to draw resonance structures without it autocorrecting. Showing molecules in 3D would be a nice addition.
