I'm sure some of you will still remember the periodic table from school (or university, if there are any chemists among us). If your experience with the periodic table was anything like mine, you may also remember the minuscule font that one would have to comb through for ages before finding what it was one was looking for. The idea behind the Android app Merck PSE HD (i.e. Periodic table of the elements) is to put an end to all the squinting and frustrated searching, as well as provide users with lots of extra information.

Features & Use
Test device: HTC Desire Android-Version: 2.3.3
Mods: Root, CM7 Custom ROM
Screen & Controls
Merck PSE HD's UI is very easy to use and its animations are quite nice. It's too bad there isn't a brief intro for first time users, although I must admit that navigating through the app is fairly easy. However, it did take me a bit before I found the menu button.
Speed & Stability
Merck PSE HD didn't crash or lag at all during our test runs. The animations run smoothly for the most bit, though there were a few lurches here and there. This had no effect on the app's speed, however.
Merck PSE HD can be downloaded free of charge from the Android Market as well as the App Center.
