Ratings and Reviews


Material was concise and easy to understand

I took organic chemistry as an undergrad, but dropped the class and recently decided to learn organic chemistry on the side to help me understand certain concepts at work. I chose the nomenclature app because I remember enjoying that lesson in class. The material was very straight-forward, concise, and easy to understand. The emojis are cool too... makes the app fun! The LITE definitely proved to me that the real app will be a winner!

Mostly perfect

This app is very good and. Extremely useful for learning organic chemistry naming conventions.

The only critique I have is on the quiz input system. I think of the name of the substituents left to right as I would write them. BUT, you are forced to enter them right to left in the app. So, I'm starting to think of everything backwards! If the author fixed it so you could add substituents in any order, or force left Tito right just as you'd write it. Then I would give this app 5 stars.


A lifesaver

This is saving me from so much headache! Love it! It steps you through naming each kind of compound with very clear rules. Only suggestions for the author are to refer to the specific rule that explains why my answer is incorrect. I would like to be able to check back on the rules during the quiz. Also more quiz questions would be good. but overall it's fantastic and worth the money.
