electronic structure app
I’ve published an app on google playstore. It’s for practising drawing electronic structures. Only available for android tablets and phones (not ipads/iphones yet). Search for 'electronic Structure FREE' in google playstore, and scroll down to find it. Or copy and paste the following web address (not sure if it will link): http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=appinventor.ai_s291hinsley.electronic_structure_v1_FREE. Or search for 'sciencehighgames'. There is a paid and a free version. The free version will have ads in eventually, but currently doesn’t, so download the free one quick before adverts go in! Ratings, feedback and (polite!) criticism welcome.
