This app advertises that it has 265 molecules "built in" to the database. In reality you can access only these (not really helpful) and the database is not customizable. I have not been able to get the program to display any other structures I have downloaded. Not worth the price for me and I doubt I will use it in my teaching.


This app doesn't allow you to look up specific molecules! So good luck trying to use this for study if the molecule you want isn't on there! I wouldn't reccoment this app at all if you need it for an advanced science course.

Can't add your own!! Lame!

I need an app that looks like this but lets me add on to or edit molecules! Is one out there???
