NMR for iPad and Android: Beta testing

We at Mestrelab are delighted to announce our first iPad / Android app ever, Mnova Tablet. You won’t find it in the google or iPad stores though as it is still in the final Beta testing stage, but from these lines I’d like to welcome anyone willing to test it out. 
Just send me an email at and I’ll be more than happy to give you the details on how to Beta test it for the platform of your choice

There is also an article in Magnetic Resonance in Chemistry which describes the main features of the app and how it was developed from a more technical point of view.


The beauty of this app is that it provides a very simple and enjoyable mobile experience for NMR data processing and viewing, not to mention the fact that it’s free, at least for the basic functionality. This is how it works:

The free version reads all NMR data (including molecules) supported by Mnova (meaning that virtually all NMR data files will be supported) and transform the raw NMR data automatically, if need be. It also allows basic graphical manipulations, including zoom-in, panning, and spectral intensities expansions.
On the other hand, in order to edit or change any processing operations (apodization, phase, baseline, etc) or apply any analysis (peak picking, integration, multiplet analysis), it will be necessary to pay a small fee via in-app purchases in the Google or Apple stores. More details about this as soon as the official release becomes available.

Key features

  • Automatic processing of 1D and 2D NMR data sets in multiplet formats (Bruker, Varian/Agilent, Jeol, Magritek, Oxford Instruments, Nanalysis, Thermo picoSpin, amongst others)
  • Support of 1D arrayed experiments
  • Processing of 2D-NUS spectra
  • Dropbox support
  • Ability to import spectra directly from the email client and share the spectra or images to social media
