Hi Ayren,
Sorry, Chimera is not available for tablet devices, only desktop and laptop computers (Windows, Mac, Linux, see available downloads here <http://www.rbvi.ucsf.edu/chimera/download.html>).

We have seen Chimera used for several college courses, and sometimes even by high school students, however, so it could be suitable if the platform limitations are not prohibitive.
Thanks for your interest,

Do you have any experience using Chimera on iPads and if so do you recommend it for College Biology students? Our instructors have referenced some Galaxy Tab A (2019) Android tablets, but we would prefer to support IOS devices over Android due to our existing central support manage systems. I’ve included a link below to the Andriod tablet they are considering as well. I appreciate your time. Thanks.
