Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This list of dinosaurs is a comprehensive listing of all genera that have ever been included in the superorder Dinosauria, excluding class Aves (birds, both living and those known only from fossils) and purely vernacular terms. The list includes all commonly accepted genera, but also genera that are now considered invalid, doubtful (nomen dubium), or were not formally published (nomen nudum), as well as junior synonyms of more established names, and genera that are no longer considered dinosaurs. Many listed dinosaurs have since been reclassified as everything from birds to crocodilians to petrified wood. This application Includes 1300+ Items including corresponding images and write ups which include Description, Location, History and Stories behind the find and Much More.
Added items to the database.
Added Feature request for random selection of dinosaurs.
Minor improvements in interface and speed.
Added a favorites Section to store your favorite dinosaurs so you don't have to scan thru the 1400+ Dinosaurs to revisit the dinosaurs you like.

Bug Fixes and new items
Not what I wanted.
I guess I have myself to blame, but this isn't at all what I was expecting. I thought I was buying a comprehensive dinosaur guide with some level of data. What this actually is is a pretty poorly photoshopped picture book. Yes, there are a lot of dinosaurs, but all you get is a low resolution squashed image, sometimes of a bone, sometimes of what I suspect is a stolen illustration. Not only is the image quality bad, but there are ghosts of bad masking and poor photoshop all over every picture. This could all be forgiven, except there IS NO DATA. No information at all. You could get more from the name of the dinosaur and a minute spent on google image search, which would be free and would have a nicer interface. Frankly, I feel ripped off.
Nothing other than a collection of pictures?
I just re-installed this app and there is nothing but pictures! Even when I look up the Stereosours, one of the picture examples above that shows a minimal amount of text, there isn't any text when I look it up in the app. Just a big picture including someone's mouse cursor off to the right. It's also visible in their example pic in the app store above. Lol
You want some good text descriptions (granted it's only about 330 dinosaurs but it has detailed descriptions) get 'Era of Dino' instead (or also like I did :-) ).
A valuable resource. Tons of information. Yes, some of the illustrations leave a lot to be desired - however, the vast amount of written information makes up for it. And the new Prehistoric Reptiles in-app purchase add-on makes this even better!
