Hi folks, with all of these smartphones and touch tablets showing up, it’s very possible you could be carrying one around in a lab, at a conference, or at even some agonizing situation where you are bored and away from a real computer. In that case your structural needs can now be satisfied by mobile apps! I’ve personally made a demo to show just how easy this can be: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=andmol
Expect to see the development of more fully-featured mobile apps that allow you to consume and perform science from anywhere at your fingertips. You may even end up developing your own mobile Rosetta plugins soon. In the meantime, your general structural needs can be satisfied by the fully-featured JMol Android port: https://play.google.com/store/search?q=jmol The JMol folks were able to port the mature JMol Java suite to Android. Way to go! I consider that a success story for Android’s choice of platform.
