And here we are, at the end of our science apps series. Together, we took a look at the best apps to help us with three of the most difficult subjects in school, and we saw that with the help of our smartphones or tablets, we can gain the upper hand by learning more or by utilizing tools that make solving problems easier. If you have only now heard about our science apps series, here’s what we’ve covered so far”

Now, we will see which apps are the best for helping you with chemistry. Yes, the nightmarish subject that most of us dreaded more than anything. To your relief, there are quite a few such apps available on the iTunes store. Here are our top picks!

Top 6 Chemistry apps for iOS

We have tried to find the apps that offer the most interesting features, and of course, those that can be used to obtain answers quickly. If you know other iOS chemistry apps, please let us know, so that we can add them to the list.

6. Chemical Calculator

Chemical Calculator

You can never have enough calculators at hand. This is what I have learned from engineering school. And I believe that for chemistry students, the same applies. A reliable calculator is hard to come by, but luckily for you, your iOS device can double as the best calculator for complex chemistry equations.

Chemical Calculator is good app for those in need of a quick calculation, especially due to its ease of use and multiple applications. It can calculate just about anything you need, so it’s a good tool to have handy at any test. Try it out to see how many problems you can solve with this “simple” iOS chemistry app and leave us your feedback.

5. Chemical Dictionary

Chemical Dictionary

Chemistry has lots of difficult terms that you must remember. I can’t even pronounce some of the terms that are used, let alone know what they are. And in my position, I think, there are others who are just at the beginning of their journey into the mysteries of chemistry. This is why it is a good idea to have with you a dictionary, until you get more familiar with all those complex terms.

Chemical Dictionary provides just such a service. It’s a great resource for students who are in need of a definition for a certain term. You can also save some of the more frequent used or share them with your classmates. Despite its simplicity, this app should not miss from any iPhone belonging to a chemistry student.

4. Chemical Elements Pro

Chemical Elements Pro

As far as chemistry goes, the most basic thing that stands at its roots is the periodic table of elements. All students have to study this table and learn about the different elements that it contains and later on, how they mix and create more complex chemicals. But the periodic table is pretty difficult to remember, and sometimes you might need some extra information about a element that the table does not show.

This is where this iOS chemistry app comes in hand. Chemical Elements Pro provides its users with a list of all the elements from the periodic table and it gives them information about each of them, very nicely structured, so you can find exactly what you are looking for in no time.

3. Chemistry Formula Calculator

Chemistry Formula Calculator

And yet again, we meet with RealSimpleEdu.Com. Now, we are looking at Chemistry Formula Calculator, an app that every student will find useful. I dare to say it’s one of the most complete chemistry calculators I have ever seen, and, as we are already used to from RealSimpleEdu, its user interface is very intuitive and user friendly.

The app provides a much needed service for students, but also for other who study more advanced chemistry. The calculator is extremely simple to use and it can solve problems ranging from simple chemistry and all the way up to radioactivity. In my book, this is one of the best apps I have ever had the pleasure to use, but also, all apps coming from this developer have a quality like none other.

2. Chemistry Formulas

Chemistry Formulas

Are you a chemistry student? Well, if you are, or if you are planning to become one, you will need to master a few formulas and the periodic table. These are crucial to know for everyone who wants to study chemistry because they stand at the lowest level of this subject.

In your help to learn, we come with Chemistry Formulas, an app that can be considered the perfect toolbox for every chemistry student. It provides users with various features, such as: chemistry calculator, periodic table, chemistry theory, definitions and morel. Also, the app features a simple and easy to navigate menu, so you can find your answers with only a few taps.

1. Molecules

Molecules

Organic chemistry has pretty much been a mystery to me. All those complex chemicals that didn’t mean anything, well, they still don’t mean anything. But now, by using Molecules, I can see these little monsters. The app allows you to view complex three dimensional molecules and interact with them.

Also, if you need a certain one, you can download the molecule and add it to your library. The molecules look awesome, and because you view them on a retina display, they will look very realistic. This tool can be very useful if you need to see how a certain molecule looks and what it’s composed of.

Armed with these apps, chemistry will never again be a problem for you, and if you use the apps that were featured in the other tops, you will become a master of science. These difficult subjects have been ruining the lives of students around the world, but your smartphone can now help you to overcome this. Be it an Android or an iOS device, the apps are there to help you. Try them out!

I often wonder, where is technology heading? What do all of these advances mean for us and for our future? I sometimes miss the days when I didn’t know how to use a floppy disk, or how a computer CPU works, but now, until I find an answer to my questions, I’ll keep tracking these advances and show everything I find to those who share my interests.
