This is a beautiful app with wonderful photos. The interaction with the mosaic as well as the "stories" are nicely done. Occasional crashing issues when opening some of the photos - not often though. It took a moment to figure out how to see the stories (just swipe to next page, tap the photo for story to appear - might be nice to have this info appear up front for new users). Would be nice to also have an index and/or glossary - would be nice to have another option to pull up photos and see all related photos to a particular dinosaur - if they were indexed.

Not worth the space

I thought this would be decent, however, the application does not work well, pinch squeeze on the pics does not work, scroll to get to the info you have to try several times to get to it, you get a couple of decent pics of each of the Dino's, the rest are pretty lame, looks like they are from a comic book from a long time ago, the fill in pics are pics of the earth, and poorly hand drawn Dino pics. Very disappointed.

Time to update app, please

I downloaded this because they featured it on the iPad Today podcast. It looked so cool, but then I watched it crash on them over and over again!

We will see if it can even be used...
