Molecule viewer for the iPhone

Molecules is an application from Sunset Lake Software for the iPhone and iPod Touch that allows you to view three-dimensional renderings of molecules and manipulate them using your fingers. The molecules can be downloaded from the Protein Data Bank (http://www.rcsb.org/pdb). You can rotate the molecules by moving your finger across the display, zoom in or out by using two-finger pinch gestures, or pan the molecule by moving two fingers across the screen at once. Molecules is free and its source code is available under the BSD license.
