What Is It? An app that allows you to to create molecule structures–and then share them instantly with flick-to-share technology, a boon to mobile learning experiences.
What Makes It Innovative And/Or Worth My Time?
Like concept-mapping, it’s probably easier to draw molecules on pencil-and-paper, but the sharing technology and error alerts for incorrectly drawn chemical structures makes this more useful than it might seem.
- Easily and rapidly share molecular structures across mobile devices
- Requires only a simple finger swipe gesture to transfer images from one to another user regardless of geographic location
