Educational Potential
There are several different apps with the same or similar name and function.
This apps are focused on the periodic table, all the activities and tests try to get the user to know about the periodic table, the elements, their properties and symbol meanings. The strength of this app is , precisely that it is only focused on that very subject. Therefore it is the appropiate tool for teachers trying to get some help to get students know about the elements.
The drawback is maybe that some teachers prefer to start explaining the periodic table through some very common elements, but the app may try to play with any rare element.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
The scenario fits in secondary levels, in chemistry subjects , at the time the periodic table is introduced in class.

I would use this tool as an examinator, a tool used to do the exam. Much better than using paper for students.
