Minor bug fixes and updates for iOS 9.
Ratings and Reviews
Good, but room for improvement
Firstly the spelling is American which is weird because if Hawking was explaining he would use S instead of Z. More links to external sources such as more in depth documentaries or lectures, the info graphics are really well done.
The explanations leave you yearning for a more detailed account, very engaging.
Good science starter
An insult to not only the genius that is steven hawking, but also to the intelligence of primary school children.
The Relativity of motion section which compares the "speed" of 2 people moving on top of trains takes takes only magnitude into account when calculating the so-called correct answer, and not direction, and simply uses the terms "faster" and "slower", meaning that at times, when the correct answer is entered, the app responds with "incorrect".
For a so-called educational app, this is simply inexcusable, and can only have a detrimental effect on your child's understanding of basic arithmetic. As the title suggests, Avoid.
Wow, I got my money's worth just from the introductory video. Seriously, it's been ingrained in my head for a month.
Haven't even tried the rest of the app properly.
5stars just for the vid! ;)
