The Periodic Table Of Elements
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The periodic table of the chemical elements (also periodic table of the elements or just the periodic table) is a tabular display of the chemical elements. Although precursors to this table exist, its invention is generally credited to Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev in 1869, who intended the table to illustrate recurring ("periodic") trends in the properties of the elements. The layout of the table has been refined and extended over time, as new elements have been discovered, and new theoretical models have been developed to explain chemical behavior.
The periodic table is now ubiquitous within the academic discipline of chemistry, providing a useful framework to classify, systematize, and compare all of the many different forms of chemical behavior. The table has found many applications in chemistry, physics, biology, and engineering, especially chemical engineering.
Sulfur details missing
Couple (at least) things still need attention. Can't expand images or crystal structure/table view. Sulfur details are missing (stopped looking further along). DMBC website doesn't seem to exist - just some weird MyAppBuilder page. Has promise.
Just got this app nothing is working on it can't even look at the elements properly. Only select elements are coming up when I tap on them. This app needs major work. Do not get this one.
Just Wikipedia pages
This app is just images of Wikipedia pages for each element. As such, all of the "links" are not links. I guess this is good if you have no wifi or 3G, but just going to Wikipedia on your iOS device is a much richer experience (and more intellectually honest).
