Now that Mario and I have Jmol running on Android, it would be good to get a discussion going as to what to do with it. It's sort of an app and sort of an applet, and it certainly doesn't have to do exactly what the applet or the application do. What do you think would be good? Here is what it does now:

-- user selects DOWNLOAD and indicates a PDB ID or other keyword
   --> list of PDB structures related to that query
      --> user picks one; Jmol displays with cartoons only; color structure

-- user selects OPEN and indicates a file on the tablet
   --> file is loaded as above

-- user selects one of a few standard styles
  --> model is rendered that way

But that's just a starting point. What else do we want it to do?

If nature does not answer first what we want,
it is better to take what answer we get.
