    The best way to get students interested in chemistry is to let them throw different compounds and chemicals together as an experiment and see what happens. But how do you do that as a teacher without creating a mushroom cloud 10 miles high? With this app you can do everything safely in a virtual world, trying out different types of equipment and experiments.

    It's not a horrible game, it's fun for a minute. Not worth the money, though. It should be free w/ ads. The developer would make more money and the end user wouldn't waste money on something that they have to use a ton of Google for, too. [Maybe consider a 'campaign'? Maybe some preset reactions or 'recipes'.] [I2+h2o2=🤩🤩]

    I bought this in fourth grade when my perception of chemistry was just throwing things together and making pretty chemicals. I got confused by the layout and deleted it. Now I'm in ninth grade, my interest and understanding has skyrocketed (as least from back then lol). I've only done one reaction so far (the chlorination of methane) and I think I'm hooked! If this change I will be sure to let you know.

    I'm severely disappointed, you don't get the excess reagent and most of these reactions don't even work, but I still like that there's way more possibilities. But again I hate that some of the reactions don't work, and it doesn't give you recommendations on what equipment to use

    I purchased this app pretty much knowing that most likely that it’s not going to 100% accurate as in real life Let’s say it’s 60% accurate it’s still fun & worth it to me 👍🏼 👍🏼 All you experienced chemist instead of criticizing the app you should email them or write a Review on here on what you find missing then maybe in future updates it will be more like 80% or 90% activate

    My son paid 12 bucks for this game, and yet there are still individual elements in the game that he has to pay more for to unlock? This seems quite unfair. He says it is very fun, but it loses 2 stars for still charging to unlock items after paying full price (and not cheap, either!) for the app.

    This game is great but I played the game a time ago and never purchased anything in the app. I re downloaded it and I had everything unlocked, although most people would find that great I think I should have had to pay for it, simply because this is a great game.

    Its hard to use, you'll tap on one thing but it'll say you tapped on the other. And its hard to move things around without needing to be stopped because you hovered over something. Also the interface glitches out where you need to restart the app to fix it which is very annoying.

    The game/tool is amazing! I found it through the developers tool (beaker) There are a few issues however: when you press menus enough times the menus break and you gotta reload the game/tool Also id like to see reactions with iron and carbon to make metals like steel but its just a idea Liquids bug out in the chemicals menu and i believe it has to do with temperature When you place a tool too high up it can be hard to grab it Theres no mixing tool to put in beakers Theres no placable cooler

  • Not Satisfied Apr 8, 2020

    By Mikentosh101
    There are some chemical reactions that should work, but do not work on this app. This app has plenty bugs and needs an update and a better improvement overall. I really do enjoy using this app, but I’m not satisfied with the incomplete or lack of true results that should take place when dealing with certain chemical reactions. Manganese (II) Sulfate does not pour into any container.

    While I appreciate the great effort and thought put into this app, I believe it has potential to be so much more. I paid a dollar to add organic molecules and there arent even any amines to play with! PbO2 wont oxidize organics either. I really wish the instructions worked but the PDF won't download properly so I can't read it. I wish the ringstand was more adjustable. As a extra special advanced wish, I would love to see the ability to have condensers, multiple tube percolating setups.

    They aren't updating it. For the price, there's some rather basic stuff missing (I think). An example is that if I mix colors, they don't mix. They form layers. If I use the stirring rod, they remain in layers. That's silly. On top of everything, there's zero response from the developers - so it's a real waste of money.
  • Most reactions don’t work Nov 23, 2018

    By Mr. L Allen
    Tried mixing KNO3 and H2SO4 to make HNO3 and it didn’t do anything. So I tried mixing it, heating it, cooling it, and nothing worked. This same thing happens with most reactions I try. Also, the PH paper has yet to function. This app is a really great concept honestly. If all the reactions worked then I would definitely recommend it to my AP Chem 2 buddies. For something that costs over $4.99 it should work properly. I’ve seen other apps that work better for free. Please please fix this guys! This app is a really good idea to develop more!!

  • Disappointed Feb 22, 2017

    By Justin Jenkins
    It's a really unfortunate scenario when you pay for the premium version of an app only for the developers to say, "we appreciate your purchase, but will require you to pay even more if you want (insert choice item)" when I paid for the pro version of this app it was to unlock ALL compounds/elements/reagents. That's what was advertised. I thoroughly enjoy this app, but I'm discouraged that I'm being asked to pay even more. No thanks.

    Honestly this app is horrible for the price. I bought to actually experiment with substances that I have yet to know the reaction to. For $8, this game doesn't do what it's supposed to do. I would wish to get a refund on this game if I can. Don't waste money on something this. Bare in mind that you have to pay extra for more items in-app, even though the main app is 8 freaking dollars
  • A chemist’s perspective Dec 28, 2017

    By TheNth
    I’m an R&D chemist by trade, so I was excited to finally see what looked like a real chemistry app on the App Store! Unfortunately, most reactions that should work don’t. The pH reading function is completely broken (pure sulfuric acid doesn’t have a pH of 7), none of the organic reactions worked for me, and the in app purchases just added insult to injury. Don’t buy this app if you’re looking for anything even remotely scientific.
  • Feb 13, 2021

    By Chris
    Do not buy as of February 13th, 2020! The app is definitely buggy and not even worth $1 till its addressed. None of the chemicals when you tap on them consecutively show what they are, stiring tools, ph strips, etc will stop working. Some reactions arent consistent either.

    Honestly, it's an incredible app. I love it. It's one of a kind on the app store. But I had to refund my purchase because it was so buggy. If you finally release another update, I'd have no problem repurchasing it. But I can't keep it for now.

    This is one of the favorite apps that I have found. It seems to have realistic and plentiful chemical reactions to work with. There are also a plethora of chemicals to work with. I also really like the lab equipment and options.

    I love this app because it does have very accurate reactions. It would be cool if you could add aqua rega as one of the liquid chemicals; also it would be great if you added chromium oxide, graphite non explodable crucibles and molds. Please add a realistic 5,000°F or more hydrogen oxygen torch.

    Not really too fun (unless you count breaking the bottles) but really educational! Only one thing though, I kinda wish the individual elements were in the app like helium and hydrogen, apart from that I really like this app

    I would love to see sodium hypochlorite as a chemical in this because of how many things it gets used in. I can't wait to see if fractional distillation and other glassware might find its way into the app. I'm installing this on my tablet soon. Bigger screen hopefully will mean more control. I would also love to see amalgamation show up because the first thing I did was mix Mercury and aluminum to make the famous amalgam. But it's not in there

    I just installed this app today and I’m really enjoying but there’s this bug where on iPad, you don’t get a temperature button or a settings button. (It’s cut off) Hope to see the bug be fixed soon! ;D

    It was good to use. But the formation of sodium chloride formula is wrong. It's 2Na + Cl_2 --> 2NaCl. And others such as the lack of equipment which is understandable for now. Other than that, it is fun breaking glass.

    Absolutely terrible, water "boils" out of flats before it reaches 100 C none of the acids dissolve metals as they should. Nitric acid cannot be poured into flask without immediately becoming nitrogen dioxide and water. Hydrochloric acid doesn't disolve anything. The list goes on and on and on. Terrible app, save your money.

    Incredibly buggy. Also, many simple reactions don't seem to have been included at all. App hasnt been updated in years. Great concept, though waste of time and money.
