What's New in Version 1.02
Minor bug fixes.
5 Stars but.....
I've given this 5 stars due to the content that's within this app and the quality of it and the information. The one problem I see and that others have pointed out it that it is not 100% compatible with an iPad ( March 2017 iPad ). I would love for this app to be made fully compatible with an iPad as the 1 x magnification doesn't cut it. Overall great app and information within it highly recommend.
Well presented and easy to navigate
This is a great app for young students or the layman looking to get a better understanding of Hawking's work. It's also a quick summary of A Brief History of Time with updates on key principles. It's nicely touch enabled and easy and intuitive to navigate. Good app and worth the cost I think.
It is easy to use
Don't believe the people that say it is hard to use and need instructions but it does not need instructions because it is simple to do
