This fact-filled, image-rich app is the only periodic table you need.

Ideal if you’re a student, teacher or just have an interest in the chemical sciences.

Did you know that neodymium is used in microphones? Or europium in Euro bank notes to help stop counterfeiting? These are just two of the absorbing facts in our free, user-friendly and customisable app, based on our popular and well-respected Royal Society of Chemistry Periodic Table website.

• See elements in their natural state and real-life applications.
• Check out podcasts and videos.
• Use our interactive slider to see how elements change state as temperature increases, or explore the discovery of the elements through history.
• Customise your app to see only what interests you.
• Use our simple table for quick access to data – like sorting elements in order of increasing density.

Great App Needs Fixes

Never do this ever. This app was such a great find! So many great features. But right now the videos keep crashing about 5 seconds into playback. Hopefully this gets fixed. Watching on a high-speed network connection. Using an iPhone 8, latest software version 13.1.... Hope this information helps you out.

Simple, intuitive, awesome

Super simple, yet full of detail. No infuriating ads, but still free to use. Overall an amazing app.

It’s design is very intuitive and info-rich, but its information density somehow doesn’t make it feel cluttered, distracting, intimidating, or confusing. It doesn’t make you look at the atomic mass or anything like that if you don’t need to. It’s still there, but it’s not in-your-face there, if you know what I mean. It’s stable, lightweight, and incredibly helpful. I never know when I—a nerd—will need quick access to a periodic table for whatever reason. I don’t want to have to search for a lo-res image of a periodic table online. I want a free and ad-free, simple but not restrictive, and available to use offline. This app *easily* does all of that.

One of the best apps for learning the periodic table EVER!!

This is such a good app! There are so many ways to get information! It has setting where you can say how experienced you are with the periodic table, and terms that have to do with it. It has a clear way of displaying the elements and clearly shows how to get information about them. The graphics of it are VERY NICE!! It gives SO MUCH information!! I like things like this that display such clear good information!! I also REALLY REALLY like that it has a dark background!! That means it does not hurt my eyes!! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good app about the periodic table!! FIVE STARS!! ☑️⚛️⚛️
