Ratings and Reviews
Very nice, but two things need fixing...
While WOD is both impressive and entertaining, I did find two glitches that need some attention. First is that the information page for Troodon is in Spanish. Now, if I were fluent in Spanish this really wouldn't be much of an issue. Sadly, I'm no good at reading or speaking Spanish, so this is a bit of a bummer for me. The second thing is the image for Iguanodon doesn't display, even though its information page does. Instead of the intended image showing up, I get the far left portion of the previous dinosaur's image (regardless of which direction I approach from). Kind of odd, I must say. But even with these two issues I still think the app is very well done. Could use a few more dinosaurs, though... and pterosaurs, too... some more marine reptiles would really nice, as well, and maybe you folks could toss in some crocodyliformes just to be sure, OK? Thanks a bunch, and keep up the good work! ;-)
OK, as of August 22, 2018, I just updated to the latest version and now it won’t let me do anything but change the icon. Not sure what is going on, but I even restarted my iPhone and it made no difference. Any advice on how to solve this issue would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
August 23, 2018 update: Great job getting the bug in version 6.4 fixed!! A very fast turnaround that really earns a lot of praise for your efforts; well done!

We are sorry for that issue. Please update the latest version (6.4.1) to fix the problem. We would be grateful if you edit your rate and review. Thank you.
Horrible app not reference
Worst app I have ever purchased. Not worth anything unless you are under 5 years of age. I really expected more from this app. It should not be under reference. I was looking for an app that could provide easy alphabetical access and this was not it. Preview images are misleading.
Edited to respond to dev: I am accessing this app on the iPhone X. After dedicating more time than this app is worth to see if the 🔍 would appear on any part of the app, I finally managed to access it under very strict and specific circumstances. You must go to the pull up menu and click back on “dinosaurs” this will bring up the panoramic image and the 🔍 will appear- if you move your phone or touch anywhere else the 🔍 icon will disappear (doesn’t matter if you are using the accelerometer view or scroll view). It does not appear under any other circumstances or on any other page or even in the pop up menu (where it belongs). I have sent screen shots of this issue directly to the devs and I hope they will fix this. Until this is fixed the app is not worth it and my one star review will stand. The 🔍 icon should not be an Easter egg that the user has to find.
I paid for this app and I want to be able to use it as an educational resource. I want it to work. I would be more than happy to amend the rating and review if and when it becomes what it claims to be.

Which part of the app doesn’t work? We explained you via email, if you have other problems please contact us.
Has Potential - EDITED
I bought this game, as I love animals and dinosaurs. I thought it would be beautiful pictures and detailed explanations of the dinosaurs. Only to open the app to find, "Become a palaeontologist to have access to full content!" after about 5 dinosaurs. But that's not the big issue. I was like "Ok, guess I will just get this too." But of course there had to be an issue with THAT. All I see is "..." and "Restore Purchase". I'll wait until tomorrow to see if this is fixed. If not, this app is going extinct on my phone.
EDIT: The update you released is working great! I now don’t see the “For the full version” button. All I see is a lot of dinosaurs! Rating from two stars to 5 stars.
