Doesn't work and it won't even download don't buy it waste of money


Absolutely great photos and info for any student of paleontology

A film producer

Interesting collection of images, showing historic photos of paleontologists, exhibit details, museum visitors, illustrations of dinosaurs and photos of lab work on fossils, etc...but a very flawed presentation concept. You are confronted with a mosaic of hundreds of randomly arranged images, designed to create an image of T.Rex but very frustrating to use as a search tool. You tap to enlarge an image in the huge mosaic, tap to open a very skimpy caption (not a "story" as the app tries to call these)...then tap to exit and you lose your location in the mosaic and have to start in all over again from the complete thing. Far too many of the images just repeat the subject for the sake of building the T. Rex image. This app is a wasted opportunity to help viewers put any aspect of paleontology in context and understand the development of the science or the species (and only 16 are described).
