Sometimes all you need is a simple periodic table...

The Chemical Touch: Lite Edition is a free and easy to use periodic table for your iPhone or iPod touch. Consisting of a simplified version of the periodic table display from the full application, it puts the masses, densities, melting & boiling points, radii, and electronegativities of the elements right at your fingertips. If you need more elemental information, touch the internet button to open the wikipedia page for the selected element.

For those who have already downloaded the full version, the only thing new here is a fancy icon for your iPhone desktop. It's free though, so if you like Neon, you can display it on your phone at no loss other than space on your screen.

This app is very useful. I'm a high school student taking a Chemistry class that is currently studying the periodic table. This app would be even more helpful if I knew what the information on the tiles was when you press one. For example, I know what atomic mass and electronegativity are, but I can't tell which number on the boxes tells what the atomic mass or electronegativity is for a certain element. A legend or key would certainly help.

Also, do you think you could also include in this app the number of electrons in each electron shell?

Great App

This is the best periodic table app I have found. It is easy to use, looks nice, has a wealth of information, and works consistently. I personally love the fact that it has not been updated since it still runs great on a second gen. iPod Touch running iOS 4.2.1. That is rare thing these days.
