Description

Molecules is an application for viewing three-dimensional renderings of molecules and manipulating them using your fingers. You can rotate the molecules by moving your finger across the display, zoom in or out by using two-finger pinch gestures, or pan the molecule by moving two fingers across the screen at once. These structures can be viewed in both ball-and-stick and spacefilling visualization modes.

New molecules can be downloaded from either the RCSB Protein Data Bank (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb), an international repository of biological molecules and their 3-D structures, or NCBI's PubChem (http://pubchem.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov), a public database of compounds. Molecules can be downloaded directly to your handheld device and stored there for later viewing.

Custom molecular structures can be downloaded to the application via iTunes file sharing, or through the use of custom URL formats. For more details, please visit our website.

Molecules is a BSD-licensed open source project.

What's New in Version 2.1

- Added support for the new Retina iPad to the rendering engine and artwork.
- Added a color key for elements to iPad interface.
- Slightly improved rendering fidelity on iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
- Fixed a few minor rendering glitches.

3/5 stars

needs a color key

:
The models are great, but there is no color key. Some I know, but not green or yellow. Also, when I manipulate the molecule into a static position of interest and then change the view, the molecule is displayed in the new format, but it is spinning again. This means that I have to reposition the molecule again.

3/5 stars

Could use more features

:
I feel bad being critical of freeware; it does what it does quite well but it's pretty limited. It doesn't have to go all Jmol but a few additions would be nice such as
– color by amino acid/nucleotide
– show backbone
– ribbons

4/5 stars

great-looking visualation

:
There are some UI quirks, for example there are three visualization styles but only the non-current ones show up in the menu so it took me while to figure out the current sytle was not among the options shown. It wasn't obvious to me how to download more molecules, either, perhaps because I have no idea what to search for (some kind of listing would be nice). And the molecule info page displayed as part of the search is shrunk too much to be read. But the molecules look great, the rendering performance is impressive, and I feel smarter just looking at it.
