WebMO is the most popular interface to computational chemistry programs, with over 22,000 unique WebMO licenses issued to date!
WEBMO iOS AND ANDROID APPS
WebMO has released a new Android app and updated its popular Apple iOS app!
The Android and iOS WebMO apps provide equivalent features including:
- Standalone molecular editing, optimization, symmetry, and orbital calculations
- Integrated web lookup of molecular properties, spectra, and data
- Access to WebMO servers (Free, Pro, and Enterprise versions of WebMO 16 and higher)
The WebMO apps supports all chemistry courses by calculating and displaying:
- VSEPR structures for General Chemistry
- 3-D structures to replace model kits for Organic Chemistry
- Data and properties for Analytical Chemistry
- Point group and symmetry elements for Inorganic Chemistry
- Small proteins and bimolecules for Biochemistry
- Molecular orbitals and vibrations for Physical Chemistry
- WebMO calculations for undergraduate and graduate level Research
Thousands of students and scientists use the WebMO apps on their smartphones and tablets each month. You can join them today for free!
WEBMO SUPPORTS CLOUD COMPUTING
More computational services are moving away from local hardware and into the "cloud". Cloud computing requires zero upfront capital outlay, eliminates hardware maintenance, and can dramatically lower the cost of computing.
WebMO now supports installation on cloud computing platforms. In less than 10 minutes, you can use your web browser to create a virtual machine, run the WebMO SITC ("Server in the Cloud") script, and have a functioning WebMO 16 server.
The cost of a WebMO cloud server can be amazingly low: <$1 per day for a WebMO server capable of running jobs on standard ab initio chemistry engines, and just $0.12 per day for a WebMO server running MOPAC! And when you don't need it, you just turn it off.
Complete documentation is available at http://www.webmo.net/cloud/sitc.html
Since Google Compute Engines are free for the first 60 days, so there is no cost or risk to try cloud computing today.
