"""The Elements"" is not just a reference app, it is a rich and engaging love story of the periodic table, told in words and pictures, and allowing you to experience the beauty and fascination of the building blocks of our universe in a way you've never seen before.
The Elements is based on the internationally best-selling hard cover edition of The Elements, by Theodore Gray, Popular Science Magazine’s Gray Matter columnist. But it goes way beyond what is possible on paper."
Living periodic table with astonishing pictures.
"This app is attractive with every element shown with a smoothly rotating sample. For example,to read about tin, tap the tin soldier; to read about gold, tap the gold nugget. Immediately ,users see the sample filling nearly the entire screen, photographed to razor sharpness and rotating around a complete circle. Beside that is a column of facts and figures, each of which can be tapped to bring up rich detail and current information through the embedded Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine.
Go to each element's second page then users will find fascinating story about the element, surrounded by carefully photographed objects representing it. Every one of these objects, well over 500 in total, is a freely rotatable, live object that users can examine from all sides and pinch zoom to see in unprecedented detail.
This app is definitely a must-see to users used to feel bored or intimidated of chemistry.Also, the definite advantage of this app is that it supports a wide variety of language."
