Ratings and Reviews
Please update your app. I have used it with my students for many years now. It is great! I have one iPad I have not updated to keep this app working. However, it would be wonderful if you updated. IEEE Spectrum magazine is also a great resource. Thanks for all you do!

The app is now updated!!! Thank YOU for continuing to use it with your students, and thank you for your kind words about the app and the magazine. Please feel free to contact us (email in our support section) if you have any further feedback!
My second graders are going to love this app. The only thing is some of them will not be able to read the information. You should add a listen to feature for younger kids.
