The whole thought of it drives me with an unassailable urge to explore, to discover, to unearth the hidden! The latest interactive app Molecules for iPhone and iPad is one of a kind which augments a whole new dimension to learning. One may regard it as an ebook in the guise of an app. The stunningly beautiful 3-dimensional illustrations are enough to magnetically attract the science enthusiasts towards it.
You may traverse Molecules chronologically or jump to the topic of your liking! Totally up to you! The table of contents is brilliantly oriented with rotating high resolution images. The real beauty of the app lies in the simplicity that resides underneath the fantastically designed user interface.
