Here comes an Android app for the ultimate geeks and science wiz-kids looking for something simultaneously educational and engaging to hook into. We all learnt about the periodic table in school and how it that has all the elements within starting from 1 to 118 will show you how to learn and memorize the periodic table with no glitches and no hassles whatsoever.
There was a time when you would have never thought that technology would make life so easy that the entire periodic table would be in your hands interacting with you. That’s right, the walking and talking table that will tell you all what it does with the elements within it all from a scientific perspective. The esteemed Android app in mention is appropriately named The Periodic Table. It’s a welcome new state of mind inspired by innovation and driven by a thirst for convenience that has triggered the influx of smartphones and tablets as educational tools in schools and colleges.
On entering the app, the first thing you would see is the systematically designed periodic table with color co-ordination very evidently visible in the interface. Each category of elements had a color to it and all of these were in numeric order.
The categories provided in The Periodic Table app range from:
- Other Earth Metals
- Alkali Metals
- Alkaline Earth Metals
- Noble gases
- Transition Metals
- Post-Transition Metals
With 7 rows and 18 columns in its interface, detecting the metal through the grid becomes easy and understandable. All of the above are in specific colours and they are color co-ordinated with the category they belong to you and in ascending order of the atomic number.
All of the metals are represented by the chemical symbol and the atomic number written within it.
Further once you click on an element it enlarges at the top left and you see the full name with all the numeric properties pertaining to elements in the table.
This brilliant app is a wet dream for chemistry students and teachers as it is designed to show you all the possible known details of the elements listed in it, and you will be treated to a truckload of interesting content once you click further on any element.
The Periodic Table Android app will take you into a page where you see at the top where you can see the following categories:
- Atomic Number
- Cas Number
- Discovery Year
Below that, you can see in categories the properties of an element in the following areas:
All you have to do is scroll down to see the details in each area and you know much more about Mendeleev’s periodic table than you ever did. If Breaking Bad ever made you curious about the badassery of fulminated mercury and hydrofluoric acid, then now is your time to quench your thirst for curiosity.
You can also see the electronic shell diagram to the left in the form of the concentric circles that are usually used to demonstrate the number of neutrons and protons in the in the element.
The Periodic Table Android app in general is very comprehensive and the interface is smooth and simple to handle. Once you get a hang of the app, all you have to do is explore around it. If you are a chemistry teacher or a student, this app offers a treasure trove of handy information at your disposal whenever you want.
In addition to the above features, The Periodic Table Android app also shows you a solubility chart so that you learn end to end about the app and no stone is left unturned.
The Periodic Table app has garnered a lot of positive reviews so far, and once you have it on your dashboard, it will leave no stone unturned in proving its educational utility as a science app worth way more than even the 5 star rating limits.
