This app stinks

It keeps going out of the app whenever I try to go into it

Developer Response ,

We are very sorry for the issues you are having with the app. NSF is working hard on a new version that will be released at the end on the month. We hope that you will give us another try after we update. Thank you.

Fascinating and visually impressive

I love this. I guess as some have said it would be nice if it was searchable, but I hadn't thought of that until I read others saying it. I don't see it as a way to gather research or anything as serious as that, so I don't really miss a search function. I see it as an extremely cool and stimulating way to kill time or to browse and learn about a whole range of current science. The presentation looks fantastically crisp and the videos I've watched on physics, my field, have been extremely well-done, accessible while still being informative and without dumbing the material down. And probably because the NSF funds many of them, very prominent and well-respected researchers in the field participate. At the same time, I can catch up on developments in other fields in an easy and enjoyable way. And as for searching, really, it's always been easy for me to find features on whatever field I felt like, just by flipping through the video wall thing. Very pleased with the NSF about this app.
