You might not stumble upon this Periodic Table app by accident given its cryptic name, but this app is highly recommended. Of the many digital Periodic Tables of the Elements that are available, this one is particularly striking in its sleek design, additional view features, and supplementary information (such as the people who discovered each element and the etymology of the elements’ names) that is not typically included in such apps. Beyond the traditional table view, users can interact with the table in many different ways, such as by viewing particular atomic properties like atomic radius or by observing state changes of different elements across various temperatures (using a slide bar to increase or decrease the temperature). The app includes a molar mass calculator as well as a glossary, so there are plenty of useful resources to explore.
