Editors’ Notes

We’re rather partial to our planet, and not just because it’s the only one we’ve got. Smithsonian Earth takes us to corners of the world we didn’t know existed, with stunning documentaries and short films about exotic animals, fragile ecosystems, and much more. We’re continually delighted by the blend of astounding filmmaking and deep knowledge, inspired by Smithsonian’s renowned museums.


Beautiful documentaries and Amazing wildlife cinematography

Smithsonian has been a world class museum for almost as long as the USA has been a country. The science and education that the institution has provided since its inception in 1846 is incredible. All that knowledge and exploration has translated very well into the videos they produce, from exploring delicate ecosystems to delving into the history of ancient civilizations, they continue to capture thrilling and timely movies and tv shows. This Smithsonian app is a must have for anyone interested in history, nature and science. They have tried to keep up with providing new full length shows for this app, but it seems the process is slow, that would be my only complaint, but there is enough currently available to keep you entertained for quite a while. I’m happy to keep my subscription going, not only to support this great institution, but to satisfy my curiosity about the history, nature, and science in our amazing world.

Bit of a sham for Google Guides.

Well, I was excited to try this app. Got a free trial but because of a website that for some reason can't function in Google Chrome, (couldn't login at all without going to Safari first) I couldn't sign up to use said promo on the site. Therefore I got duped into putting my payment info in and didn't even get the offer specified. No option to use promos in the app either. Not a great first impression.
