By HarperCollins Publishers Ltd

Editors' Choice

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Explore the majesty of nature in breath-taking 3D with Professor Brian Cox as your personal tour guide.

The follow-up to multi-award winning Wonders of the Universe gives you:

► Over 30 3D creatures and habitats

► Over 2 hours of HD video (wifi connection required for streaming)

► More than 1000 crisply high-res images accompanied by expert commentary

► And it’s all set against a soundtrack that will blow your socks off

► Additional bonus content can be accessed by signing in. (Completely optional! Press "Skip" or "No Thanks" to continue after the Introduction.)

From the vast networks of subterranean freshwater caverns of the Yucatan peninsula to the Great White Sharks haunting the South Neptune Islands, from the Hermit Crabs of Christmas Island to the Red Kangaroo of Western Australia, this app will help you uncover the secrets of life in the most unexpected locations and in the most stunning detail.

Explore the vision of the Kangaroo, the DNA of the Chameleon or the hearing of the Mohave Desert Sand Scorpion in its natural habitat in scintillating 3D detail, delving deep down variously into the detail of microbial life, the inner eye, the second law of thermodynamics, and more.

Along the way you’ll learn how everything on Earth, from the smallest microbe to the largest giraffe, is constructed from the same fundamental building blocks and is subject to the same laws of nature.

Professor Cox and BBC Head of Science Andrew Cohen underpin the experience with over 80 articles delving into intricacies of the natural world and the laws which bind it, alongside over 2 hours of footage from the series and 30 mind-blowing 3D models, all optimised for the iPad’s retina display and set in an interface designed bespoke for IOS 7.

The app seamlessly complements the Wonders of the Universe app (chosen by Apple as one of the best apps of 2012), adding in a tranche of additional information to Brian’s compendium of information on our solar system.

Customer Reviews

Why does this app not work on the 6 Plus

I'm a big fan of Brian Cox and love this app idea, but it still does not work on the iPhone 6 Plus or 6 Plus S. It's been over an entire year and I would have expected this to be fixed by now. Money almost wasted since I can't even use it. Will change my review once this is fixed. Sorry, Brian.

Short of Expectations

I am not sure of the frame of reference for all the high reviews. It falls far short of both the quality and quantity of what I anticipated. Clearly not worth more than $0.99

Wonder of Life. By Brian Cox

Navigation is a MYSTERY!!! The "How to use this app". Is useless. The app seems to go along as it wants to. And my attempts at navigation are futile. This is a VANITY. Experiment. That wants MUCH refinement before it goes up to market.
