What's New in Version 1.4
Zoom Bug Fixes
This is a great visual museum application. The ability to tap into any part of the mosaic is clever, unique and makes browsing more exciting. Users can see images of fossils, artifacts in the museum, recreation of dinosaurs from the past and learn basic facts about the species with a tap of the photo. In terms of design this app is top notch. It could use a bit more information about dinosaurs for users but in serving as a introduction to dinosaurs and the museum this exhibit takes place in the app does it's job.
More more MORE!!
Please make more apps like this. I would rather have these on my 8 year old's iPad than any shootin at things or crashing virtual avatars game... the kids LOVE it and spend forever looking thru the pictures. Well done!
I love the app because of it's information, but it's also how you learn it. Looking at pictures from a mosaic is better than just reading about dinosaurs
