I'm Lovin' It!
Smithsonian is the only app I look to for quality documentaries. It's free, in HD, and updated regularly... and no, I wasn't trying to make that rhyme. One day I'll get a subscription to their channel; but for now, I'm totally satiated with my access to this. 😘 Thank you so much for this wonderful app and please keep the fountain flowing!
I really enjoy this app. Love the content and ability to access it at my convenience. I have no complaints at all with it except that I should have been enjoying it since it was first available.
The Smithsonian had more diverse shows then I thought I could ever have and the quality of each one is excellent I would recommend this to anyone Who has time on the plane car ride or would just rather watch good TV into the crap on cable
