Just for information, do the jmol applet and applets in general, work on android tablets ?

Regarding suggestions, it could be great to save its work in the form of an image gallery that could be organized in folders. By clicking on an image, the state could be reloaded.

JmolAndroid is moving along. We have a preliminary version that is working on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

(By the way, Wow! Do I LOVE this little dual-core Galaxy. I am very happy I didn't jump for an iPad now; this is a real computer, not just a large iPhone!)

I'm starting to catch on to the tablet idea, and I do think there are some interesting things we can do with Jmol in this context. For example, the next thing I'll be adding is accelerometer support. So you should just be able to shake the tablet to start the model spinning, that sort of thing. We'll see!

Anyway, this is a neat little project for anyone who wants to help. We need ideas as well as programming help. So far, we have:

-- menu items "Open" "PDB" "Mol" "Style" and "Command"
-- downloads from RCSB (PDB files) and NCI (by compound name)
-- automatic save of data files to the tablet
-- decent (though a bit slow) rendering.

I think it will take some thought to do this right. But I can imagine making it quite a bit more interesting than standard app or applet. For example, Mario has added the capability to search the PDB for an ID code or keyword. This already looks very good. I've added loading of Mol files, and that works very nicely as well. But we could do more interesting things, like first display a page of information about the compound, including a drawing, with links to useful locations such as Wikipedia and such, and then go to the 3D rendering. It seems to me we might even be able to load a Proteopedia page (via a WebView), display it with a JmolAndroid view rather than an applet. I'm encouraged by this, from http://developer.android.com/guide/webapps/webview.html:
