Great Idea, execution needs work

Edit to original review: The issue of the frozen gray screen has been addressed and I am enjoying this app. Lots of interesting items across scientific fields organized in categories and in one quick and easily accessible location.

Original review:I loved the concept of current science related news being easily accessed in one place. The app is very buggy on my iPad though. There is a gray overlay help with navigation screen that comes up explaining how to navigate the app. You can't exit out of it though so you can't use the app or read the articles. Also tapping the info. Button takes you to rate or send feedback but cuts back out on its own when you try to do so. I like the organization of news into subcategories and so long as the app is regularly updated with ongoing news and the bugs fixed I think it could be great. Please fix!

So interesting!

Such a great app! So many amazing articles packed with colorful pics and videos. The content is all well written and so interesting. Whether your 8 or 80, this app is packed with fascinating stuff to learn about. Check out the Penguins tank webcam app they offer too-it's so much fun! Watch the Penguins swim around and interact with one another in their habitat at the Academy. You can even watch when the biologist comes out and feeds them while also teaching the audience about the Penguins twice a day, every day!
