Ratings and Reviews

Love it


My son and I simply love this app. It is hard to get used to the American narrator at first, but you soon get past it. The app is well conceived and well presented. A nice mix of artwork, audio and movies makes this a great app that is both educational and entertaining. The only downside is the lack of audio for the short dinosaur movies and the app will occasionally crash. I hope that this can be rectified in a future update as this is a really great app.

Works well. Needs more variety in audio.


It works well. My dinosaur-appreciating daughter really enjoys it and is teaching us all about each new dinosaur. In the audio presentations, I assume the male voice is meant to be exciting but I would prefer more variety with pleasant voices male & female. Both my daughter and son say that the videos are very good and life-like. Would be great to have more videos.

Bugs not dinosaurs


This app just crashes constantly. Very average for 6 clams, don't waste your time. Developers need to spend some more time on the navigating and transitioning of this app and less time on worrying about whether it will sync with Facebook. The VoiceOver is also just terrible.
