What's New in Version 1.2
30 Biographies added.
First version. Good start, but clearly needs updates...soon!
As an early version release, you can see the potential of this app. But, updates are absolutely essential, if nothing else to justify its almost 1 gigabyte download size.
1. There are factual mistakes that need to be corrected immediately.
2. The English is substandard and detracts from the user experience. The developer needs to address this. Why is it so hard to have apps like this proofread by people with commendable English language skills? Some of the grammar errors could be picked out by an elementary school student.
3. There are way too few woman of accomplishment included in the app. I am a teacher. This app, sadly, perpetuates the myth that females can't achieve at as high a level as their male counterparts.
4. As it is, the app is more focused on style than substance. This makes it more appropriate for a young (elementary school) audience. Adding more content would expand the potential user base. That would be good for the customer and the developer.
Look forward to updates that hopefully address these issues.
I rarely write a review, but I was so impressed with this app that I took the time to do so immediately! The app provides a great deal of information in a compact, easy-to-read format. The visuals and music (when relevant) enhance the biographical input. I look forward to seeing more biographies added. Good job, developers!
Want to like, but...
I want to like this app, great idea. But there are so many spelling errors and grammar errors, that it makes the app not trust worthy. Also, some info is wrong!!! Who wrote this? Did you even know about history. Please fix your errors and check your info. Also, the info from the first page is repeated on the second page but in bullet points. I don't need to read the info twice. Please update Mr. Mohammed publisher!!!
