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
