Ratings and Reviews

Glitchy with smart board


As a museum educator, I really love that many of the things I use to teach my 10 series on Mars are now in one place. However, I need to be able to hook my iPad up to the smart board to mirror so that all the students can see the app at once. When I make this connection the app becomes very sluggish and often freezes.

Works great for me.

I'm currently using an iPhone 4 running iOS 6.0 and all the features if this app work for me. I hope that info helps someone who's having difficulties. I've been trying to keep up with curiosity but the NASA website is difficult to find what I'm usually looking for.

Love it



Lots of stuff to do and explore plus it free!!! This is a great way to educate the public and I really hope it is successful. Both this app and curiosity!!

The only con I have with this app is there is not very much technical info involving the mission. I am a geek for all things about space and therefore I know a little more about this stuff than someone who has never studied or followed along this kind of info. I don't mean to toot my own horn here I am just saying that some of the info I seen I have already read about before.

But as stated in the first paragraph, thing is great!! I super highly recommend it.
