Would be 5 stars... except one thing.


I love this app but I'm a slight bit dyslexic and when I mix reactions the information pop up doesn't stay on long enough for me to read. Very frustrating having to redo the reaction to try and read the rest of what it was telling me.

Please change the pop up prompts from timed to manual. Meaning you have to click an X or something to close the pop up. This might be annoying to some, but you can make a toggle on/off option in settings or something.

Other than that, 5 stars.



goREACT is a very useful app. I have 3 suggestions: 1. Display reaction on the same page. 2. Include organic reactions such as sugars. 3. Allow multiple elements to be moved at once by prompting for the number needed. My 6th grade son will love this app. I will show him when he is released from school. Thank you for your creative and informational app.

Wrong formula


Zirconyl hydroxyl chloride should be ZrOHCl not ZrOCl as listed in the app. Screen shots of the compound names are the only way to actually read all of the name. This is a work-around, but it would be better to have a tap screen remove the information instead of a quick flash to read.
