Mobile science app updates


A couple of applications from Molecular Materials Informatics, Inc have been updated.

Open Drug Discovery Teams is a content management system providing crowd sourced information on a range of tropical and neglected diseases. The ODDT app is free. It can be used anonymously to browse topics. Submission of content requires the user's Twitter account to be enabled and made available to the app.


Living Molecules allows specially crafted molecular glyphs to be snapped by the device camera, which direct the app to chemical data: molecules, reactions and collections. This update fixes a bug that could cause the app to crash.

Mobile Molecular DataSheet update includes Sketcher improvements: crayon gestures for adding rings and lines; traversal gesture for growing rings from bonds; and a "band-aid" feature for fixing badly drawn chain bonds.

There is now a searchable database of mobile science apps
