What's New in Version 1.1
I used to love Bill Nye growing up, so when I saw the app I was very excited. Unfortunately, this app was didn't have as much content as I had hoped. My 5 and 6 year old boys were bored to tears. I have downloaded so many educational apps that are both informative and fun, that keep my little ones busy for hours. This app was not one of them. I certainly hope that there will be an app update or perhaps a new app altogether. I had really high hopes for this. I don't understand all the rave reviews this is getting. I understand liking Mr. Nye and wanting to be supportive in his endeavors, but this app is just awful compared to others like this.
Keep adding content to this one with updates. Finally something wonderful that is very educational for kids. My autistic 7 year old and gifted 9 year old LOVE Bill Nye as much as I did when I was a kid and they are transfixed and learning something! Hurray for this app!
First, it took a long time to download and once it was done I started playing it with my 4yo daughter. She was really looking forward to playing the games except the rocket game crashed before the "mission", the robot digging game crashed when the time was over or the robot touched water, and the illusion game crashed while playing it. Just kept crashing all the time!
