What's New in Version 2
Fun to read
I do like this app but I feel like it lacks a bit in the amount of information given and the amount of dinosaurs shown. Maybe if this got an update that includes more types of dinosaurs I would give it 5 stars. Besides this, it's a very fun and innovative idea and I hope it develops more.
Version changes ...
Version 2 is ok, but I preferred version 1 as all the data was on my iPod/iPhone. It also lent a feeling of delving 'deeper' into a subject, as one zoomed into the mosaic - vs clicking on a circle. And, when you live in a rural area, the 'interweb' is not always available.
Waste of time unless you just like pretty pictures
No information about species provided besides a blurb (as short as a few words), then some hand-drawn images and photos from museum exhibits. How about lineage? Lifespan? Time period? Natural predators or food? Also a disturbing lack overall of species to read about - with some exceptions, if you haven't seen it in a movie it's not there. Disappointed.
