ChemSpider Mobile app goes live

ChemSpider Mobile is a free iOS app (iPhone, iPod, iPad) for searching the ChemSpider online chemical database. It provides the ability to search by drawing a chemical structure, or entering a compound name. The app is very straightforward and easy to learn. Search results are shown in a list showing structure and names. Any search result can be examined in more detail by launching the mobile browser and viewing the structure on the ChemSpider web page.

Although the ChemSpider web page is designed to work well on mobile browsers, the mobile app is more convenient to use, and is currently the best way to search by structure from a mobile device. The structure drawing capabilities are provided by the embedded version of the Mobile Molecular DataSheet. The app was built by Molecular Materials Informatics, on behalf of the RSC.

The app is now available from the Apple App Store

    Thanks for the comment Simon. An Android app is definitely on the plan, but we’ll take experience and feedback from the iOS app to feed into that.

    Can’t wait for the Android App, but can i ask that you allow users to download it from your server and not the Android market place, reason being that not all Android devices can use this market.
