DescriptionThis is a great 3D PDB ( Protein Data Bank ) format data viewer. With help of this app, you can take your 3D files with you no matter where you are, at home or traveling abroad, and view them with your phone (or tablet).
The app provides many 3D features including rotating model with finger movement, zooming in/out, changing color, etc. You can also choose to render your model in wireframe only mode or surface rendering mode. You can view multiple files together.
3D data files can be added to the app's external storage folder called 'afanche'. Just connect your phone (or tablet) with a PC and copy your 3D models to the 'afanche' folder of the device. After that, you can use the app to load the models you saved in the directory. If you have files in system 'download' folder of your device, the app can open them as well. You can also use the app to open files from email(attachment) or web (by downloading). The app also supports third party file management app, for instance, DropBox.
The app provides you file sorting features so that you can find your model quickly. You can sort by file name or file creation time. If you don't need some of the files any more, you can use the app to delete them. If you need share 3D model with your friend, coworker, client or partner, you can use in-app email feature to send your model out as email attachment.
The app is not just a data file viewer. It is also a 3D data file organizer. With its help, it is so easy to keep your 3D data and other files orgainzied. The app provides native support for multimedia including image, video and audio. The image formats supported by the app include png, jpeg, bmp, gif, webp. The video formats supported by the app include 3GPP (.3gp), MPEG-4 (.mp4). The audio formats supported by the app include MIDI (.mid), MP3 (.mp3). The app also provides features for you to have a peek at the raw data of data files in ASCII (text) or binary format.

If you are not familiar with PDB here is more info from Wikipedia:
The Protein Data Bank (PDB) is a repository for the 3-D structural data of large biological molecules, such as proteins and nucleic acids. It is a key resource in areas of structural biology, such as structural genomics. PDB format describes the three dimensional structures of molecules. It is supported by many software including (UCSF) Chimera, Cn3D, Coot, Gabedit, Jmol, Molden, Molekel, PyMOL, RasMol, UGENE, VisIt, VMD, Yasara. The pdb format accordingly provides for description and annotation of protein and nucleic acid structures including atomic coordinates, observed sidechain rotamers, secondary structure assignments, as well as atomic connectivity. Structures are often deposited with other molecules such as water, ions, nucleic acids, ligands and so on, which can be described in the pdb format as well. The Protein Data Bank also keeps data on biological macromolecules in the newer mmCIF file format.
