Chem3D® for iPad®

Selected for App Store Best of 2013 in Korea

Chem3D® for iPad® is a free, structurally accurate molecular viewer for exploring and interacting with 3D models, built on the same 20 years of proven chemical intelligence and attention to detail in Chem3D desktop software. Chem3D can import 3D models with a wide variety of structural file types, and models can be rotated and scaled with the touch of a finger to expose different viewpoints.

Chem3D® for iPad® can display models as ball-and-stick, wireframe, space-filling and cartoon and can apply these modes to a wide variety of structures including proteins, DNA, RNA, crystals, assemblies and small organics.

Chem3D® for iPad® features revolutionary Flick-to-Share™ technology so that researchers, students and teachers can immediately "flick" 3D models to other app users within their network; no multi-step emailing or cloud storage services required.
