  • Includes a lot of information

If you’re going to make a biochemistry app, you might as well give it 100 percent—that’s what I always say. While I wouldn’t go so far as to say that the 100% Biochemistry app completely lives up to its name, it is still a nice reference app for students of the subject. The app includes a large amount of information on a wide variety of topics including nucleic acids, catalysis, and cell signaling pathways. Under each of these topics are many individual pages, any of which can be saved to the user’s “saved” list for easy access later. A fun feature of the app is the “random page” option, which can be accessed either by clicking on the pair of dice at the top of the app or by simply shaking your phone.
