Ratings and Reviews
Good. Has some issues
1. The Scrambled Gods puzzle does not work on the iPad 3 with iOS 6.1.3. I am not sure what is supposed to happen, but there is no way to touch the letters and unscramble the words. The hints show, but I do not care about the hints. I want to be able to solve it.
2. The virtual tour was not that impressive to me, as it was a computer model and not the real thing.
3. No ability to pinch and zoom on the iPad. An app like this should take full advantage of the iPad's capabilities and this one does not.
Great Supplemental App
Homeschool parents and teachers can also print off lesson plans and activities on their website! I wish they would make apps for more topics.
Great potential but cartoonish
Great potential but why not have real pictures and videos of Greece? Some of the animations are fine, but some are ridiculous. Being Greek myself, I can honestly say that some of the Greeks look like someone from another country. It's just better to teach using real images.
I showed a 12-year old without saying a word, and her first question was...where are the real pictures?
