Great to show how the Earth has changed over time!
This app is precisely what I was looking for to show my daughter how the Earth has geologically changed over time. In fact, the only reason it's not five stars is that it uses the scientifically obsolete concept of "continental drift" (rather than plate tectonics) as part of the title.
Three other notes:
- When photos are on, the automatic scaling makes it difficult to see the land. Consider turning off the genie effect.
- A feature I would love is the ability to put a pin on a piece of land (e.g. our home) in one time period and track it's motion across time.
- I understand the frustration of other reviewers who expected more dinosaur stuff. This app is great for what I wanted, but not so much for them. Consider renaming it "Earth Walk" or "Geo Walk" or something like that. I'm sure that "Dino Walk" sells more unit, but the company's brand has grown trusted by folks and this product name strains that trust for people who really want dinosaur stuff.
Was good. (I said was for a reason)
This app was good but ever since the newest (I think) update, it kept crashing. I'll put three stars cuz this was a good app.
