No matter how old I get, something about dinosaurs will always fill me with wonder. If you’re a kid, or a kid at heart like me, you will love the Discover Dinosaurs iPad app from developer Space Machine, Inc.
Get ready to learn all about the baddest beasts to roam the earth in my iPad app review of Discover Dinosaurs.
The Discover Dinosaurs iPad app links dinosaur facts, images and games in an app that lets you curate your very own dino collection.
Start by answering questions about some of your dinosaur friends. Then play a picture puzzle to build one of the dinosaurs you answered the question about. While you play dinosaur facts about each will pop up for you to learn.
Get a picture complete to find out if you had the correct answer. If you did, that dinosaur is part of your collection and you can visit it any time.
There are nine levels, each one is a little harder than the last. Trust me, these get pretty challenging. You can earn one, two or three stars on each level.
The developer suggests this app for children ages 6 – 10. I think it will have an even wider range. Dinosaurs are forever. Well, at least dino love is forever. Sorry about that whole extinct thing, guys.
I love apps that include sneaky learning. The Discover Dinosaurs iPad app is chock full of paleontological data snuck inside a brilliantly illustrated app. Your kid will be learning without realizing it, and having a good time, too.
As a dinosaur lover, you will learn the proper names for these beasts, large and small. You’ll also discover what period they lived in, where they were discovered and so much more. Who knows, you may discover a love for dinosaurs that becomes a lifelong passion.
Layout & Design:
You can’t have a dinosaur app without some rocking graphics. The Discovery Dinosaurs iPad app definitely delivers. There are custom scenes for each dinosaur in their natural habitat, sometimes even surrounded by their herd.
These are definitely quality graphics, sure to capture imaginations young and old.
The layout is easy enough for a child to use without getting confused or frustrated. Accessing menus or navigating out of the app is difficult. Each level is represented by an egg. Once it’s complete a ferocious dinosaur appears instead.
If you have a dinosaur fan in your family, you can’t afford to skip the Dinosaurs Discovered iPad app. Download this dynamic dino primer from iTunes for $2.99. This app is made specifically for the iPad. I think a smaller screen wouldn’t do the awesome graphics of this app any justice.
Discover Dinosaurs iPhone app requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
