Also, there are some web-based viewers with nice capabilities, e.g. NGL Viewer (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4489237/ <https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4489237/>).

Our development process is designed to generate apps for Linux, Windows and Mac using as much common code as possible. We have not investigated whether an iOS version may be compiled using the same code base, but is seems highly unlikely, given what we've seen about iOS development. With our limited resources, we're focusing on ramping up ChimeraX functionality on the currently supported platform, rather than adding support for a new one.  Sorry.

>> Hello,
>> I use Chimera occasionally in my research, and extensively for teaching (biochemistry, cell biology, developmental biology).  It is now the only remaining piece of software I use that requires me to bring a laptop computer to class.  For everything else (PDFs, animations, Keynote presentations, etc.) I can use my iPad which connects by AirPlay to the projector, and screencast everything using Doceri.  Furthermore, the touch-screen interface of the iPad seems ideally suited for many of the analyses and/or molecular renderings people use Chimera for.
>> So I’m wondering if there are any plans to produce either a full or partial version (perhaps with only viewing capabilities) of Chimera that runs on iOS?  If there is, I would be very happy to help with beta testing.  If not, can I ask if you can recommend any software that runs on iOS that I might consider?
