    Few iOS apps are as thoughtfully designed as Molecules, and even fewer combine superb visuals with clear writing that encourages exploration. If you're a parent or teacher looking for a way to engage middle or high school students in learning about the material world, Molecules looks like a pretty good investment. But be careful: you may find yourself spending lots of time with the app yourself—because, unlike those old science textbooks, it's a lot of fun.

    Pros

    • Rich images and models rotate to provide multiple viewing angles
    • Engaging topics that are easy to read for all levels
    • Looks terrific on both the iPhone and iPad

    Cons

    • Lacks bookmarking, highlighting, and note taking capabilities
