Molecules 1.0.1 available on iTunes
Fixed in this version:
- The chemical bond lookup tables have been enhanced to include standard amino acids, all nucleotides, and the bonds in-between, so most DNA, RNA, and protein structures should be properly represented.
- A visual corruption bug when scrolling over the rows in the detailed description of the molecule has been fixed.
- A minor glitch where the Info button on the main view could be pressed twice in a row has been fixed.
I'll admit that I pushed 1.0 out a little early, but I had assumed that I could get a patch posted within a couple days. I apologize to the iTunes reviewers who described 1.0 as an incomplete product. It currently is more proof-of-concept than useful scientific tool, but I plan to add capabilities as quickly as I can to bring it closer to that level.
I'm currently working on a larger 1.1 update, which will add spacefilling and cylindrical (with residue-specific coloring) visualization modes, integrated keyword searching of the Protein Data Bank, and should improve performance by caching the molecules in a SQLite database the first time they are loaded.
