Subject: Chimera [viewer] for iOS in the future?


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?
