Of all the periodic table apps, there is only one which Stephen Fry described as “Alone worth the price of an iPad!”. The Elements is not just a reference app, it is a rich and engaging love story of the periodic table, told in words and pictures, and allowing you to experience the beauty and fascination of the building blocks of our universe in a way youve never seen before.

The Elements is based on the internationally best-selling hard cover edition of The Elements, by Theodore Gray, Popular Science Magazine’s Gray Matter columnist. But it goes way beyond what is possible on paper.

You start off at a living periodic table where every element is shown with a smoothly rotating sample. To read about tin, tap the tin soldier. To read about gold, tap the gold nugget. Immediately you see the sample filling nearly the entire screen, photographed to razor sharpness and rotating around a complete circle in front of your eyes. Beside that is a column of facts and figures, each of which can be tapped to bring up rich detail and current information through the embedded Wolfram|Alpha computational knowledge engine.

Go to each elements second page and you find a fascinating story about the element, surrounded by carefully photographed objects representing it. Every one of these objects, well over 500 in total, is a freely rotatable, live object that you can examine from all sides and pinch zoom to see in unprecedented detail.

Touch the element name at the top of the page and you can see that element’s name in over a dozen different languages. Choose one and you’ll find that the entire book, stories, captions and all, switches to that language: The Elements includes both the full English original text and over a dozen full translations.

Pinch-zoom or tap any object to bring it up full screen, where you can split into a pair of stereo 3D images. Using inexpensive 3D glasses you can see all 500 objects pop off the screen in 3D, and you can spin the objects, in 3D, with the touch of a finger. You can’t get much more virtually real than that.

If you had a bad experience with chem class in school, this book is the antidote. If you or someone you know is afraid chemistry will be their most boring subject, this book will show them that there’s a lot more to the periodic table than a bunch of numbers and letters.



“The iPad’s splendor and power may be best shown by The Elements... it’s not like any ebook you’ve seen. The periodic table of elements comes to life.”
– USA Today

“Its dazzling—it makes science feel like magic in your hands.”

– Xeni Jardin, Boing Boing

About the author:

Theodore Gray is a best-selling author and writer of Popular Science Magazine’s Gray Matter column since 2003.


Praise for the Hardcover Edition:

“This is the element book that in style and content outshines all element books! The photographs are fantastic in their mod layout on black. In the accompanying short texts, in a few choice words, Gray sketches utility, delves into history, and isn’t afraid to make sharp comments about the world. My reaction: elemental delight.”
– Roald Hoffmann, writer and winner of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry

la seul appli qui pour le moment, a su exploiter le potentiel énorme de lipad ... un must have ... je nai pas besoin de ce tableau tous les jours, cest plus larchitecture de lapplication qui est interressante que son contenue lui meme, encore que ...

Attention version française à payer en plus

TouchPress vient davoir la "bonne" idée de ne pas incorporer les traductions de cette application dans celle-ci mais de publier de nouvelles applications (au mépris de ce qui se fait dans le monde Apple). Il faut donc choisir la bonne version. Les acheteurs précurseurs nont que leurs yeux pour pleurer.

Crash de lapplication

Lapplication crash systématiquement sur mon iPAD sur la page du Platinum... Tout appui sur un bouton (Home, Back, previous (Ir 77) ou Back (Pt 78) plante lapplication. Et pire, impossible de revenir au menu !!!!! Bravo pour les tests !!!!!

Attention très instable

Cette application est vraiment magnifique. Le mode 3D apporte même la cerise sur le gâteau. Seul hic : impossible de voir plus de 2 éléments sans planter. Une catastrophe. A bannir pour les demos, ça fait mauvais genre.


Il ny a rien de Français !!!!! Le chargement est long ! Sinon le logiciel est très réaliste.

On nen a pas pour son argent.

Jai acheté cette App près de 12€ quand je possédais liPad de 1re génération. Passé lémerveillement devant la très haute qualité de lApp, on retrouve la dure réalité: aucune mise à jour en 2 ans, même pas pour le Retina du Nouvel iPad. Avec mise à jour Retina, je mettrai volontiers 5 étoiles.

ne sinstalle pas...

Bonjour jai un ipad2 et 3 go de disponible et lapplication refuse de sinstaller. Alors je peux pas donner davis favorable pour le moment.
