This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Did you ever wonder why the periodic table is shaped the way it is, what gives each element its own unique set of properties, or even how elements combine to make everyday objects such as a cup of coffee? With “NOVA Elements,” explore an interactive periodic table, play a game hosted by David Pogue, or watch the two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements.”
What's New in Version 1.3
This release contains minor content updates to reflect the current names and classifications of elements.

This app used to be an awesome study tool for my science classes but it hasnt been updated in around 3 years and although i can still use every aspect of it, the layout is all wonky with the latest IOS format because the app hasnt been updated to properly work with it so everything is either out of place or covering something else up entirely. Please update this ASAP!!!!
Interesting if you love elements
This app is great for people who need a education or need to know about the elements. I feel like why do teachers not use this when they are teaching science or social studies so the kids get to no more about the elements. But I also think he should talk more about the gold because he only talked about it of ten minutes. He also makes learning fun for kids to learn and actually pay attention instead of passing notes or talking and telling jokes and some kids think about some of them a bit to wrong. So if I were you I would let tryout child watch this.
I loved the TV show, and I even showed it to my classes in the past. This app is awesome. The only thing I would change is the size of the font on the Build An Atom page. The atomic number and atomic mass numbers are very tiny. I can see them, but it takes some effort. It would be better to use font size 12 or 14 to emphasize these numbers, since students will need to use them to calculate the number of neutrons.
