I'm not sure what you saw, but Molecules has never supported a ribbon mode visualization. Perhaps you were looking at another application running on their display iPad.

Currently, the application only uses the spacefilling and ball-and-stick visualization modes.

Actually, I saw EXACTLY the same thing on the iPad2 in the Verizon store in Cincinnati OH. The Molecules program looked identical to what I downloaded on my iPad2 this evening, except that I cannot display anything in Ribbon format. In the Verizon store, I could select Ribbon format for the pre-loaded structurs (exactly the same structures that came with the program I just downloaded), as well as for the additional structure that I downloaded from the PDB. Is there a different version of the program running in the Verizon store?

I seriously doubt that Verizon has a version of my own application that I'm not aware of, unless I'm writing code in my sleep.

What you might have seen was a much older version that had a mode called "cylinders" where just the bonds were drawn. This is not a ribbon mode visualization, but it does look different than the others. When I changed to the new rendering engine a couple of months ago, I removed this mode because I had problems in making it look right. I still haven't corrected the issues I had with it, so it's still missing from the current version.
