Human Face of Big Data Viewer
By Rick Smolan
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
In order to use this app you need to have a copy of the large format illustrated book, The Human Face of Big Data by Rick Smolan & Jennifer Erwitt. Pointing your iPhone or iPad at certain images in the book which contain the yellow KEY symbol shown above will launch videos from the web allowing you to learn more about that specific story.
This app serves its singular function moderately well. My main gripe is that there's this intrusive pop-up banner which appears at the bottom of the screen every 10 to 15 seconds reminding you that you can DOUBLE-TAP TO EXIT. This incessant reminder is as idiotic as it is annoying! The implicit assumption is that you can't remember this simple instruction for more than a few seconds and need to be constantly reminded.
Mark P. is an idiot who can't read...
...and should not be allowed to review anything.
This app works very well if you have the book, which would be of no use to Mr. P as he cannot read.
Saw this on #CNN read through the tutorials, registered, made a channel with a description- I'm ready to create an aura, right? No...crashed after making the channel, now every time I launch "my channels"-CRASH.

Did your team beta test this app before going live?
Disappointed, I keep the app so I can look forward to immediate updates.
Oh, and please remove the "Harry Potter-esque" animation of "Aurasma", it looks amateurish.
