Chemistry Image Challenge App

Do you like a good challenge?   The Journal of the American Chemical Society has launched a new mobile app, designed to mix fun with some intellectual stimulation.  It’s the JACS Image Challenge Mobile.

You’ll find the free app at iTunes – it’s available for all Apple iOS devices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad).

Now featuring over 180 unique challenges, the app is a mobile extension of the popular JACS Image Challenge, hosted on the JACS website.  The convenient mobile app allows researchers to turn the time spent waiting for an experiment, a purification, or even a bus or train ride into a rewarding learning experience.

Each challenge is a multiple-choice question about the concepts portrayed in an image from an Article or Communication recently published in JACS. After the user submits his/her response, an explanation of the correct answer is displayed.  The app is updated with a new challenge weekly.

The JACS Image Challenge mobile version offers the following features:

  • Track the challenges taken and how many were answered correctly
  • Save favorite challenges
  • View challenges by subject category
  • Download new challenges automatically
