What is the atomic mass of Antimony? How about the density of Cytosine? The Chemical Touch app will give you such answers, but it will provide a whole lot more. Users will be able to uncover all of the details of each element, sort by custom colors, and get encyclopedic information from Wikipedia too.

The Chemical Touch app opens with a beautifully color coded screen which contains the Periodic Table of Elements and listings for other chemicals too. Tapping any of the listed elements or chemicals brings the user to a General Properties screen that gives such specifics as the melting point, boiling point, specific heat, the number of protons and electrons, the electro negativity, atomic mass, density and other details.

There are also pages for ionization, isotopic, and x-ray properties too. If this isn’t comprehensive enough, there are easy to use links that provide the individual with access to the Wikipedia page for the element or chemical selected. There are also listings for the amino acids and nucleobase materials too. If the user wants to recolor the chart by choosing from a menu of specific properties it can be done with just a few touches of the screen as well.

There are other scientific and technological reference apps, but The Chemical Touch app is one that is designed to give the most comprehensive information about the elements.

The cost for the app is $0.99, and any updates are available free of charge. This app functions with iPhone and iPod Touch devices.

If you need a handy scientific and chemical reference tool, this app is going to provide an excellent solution.
