Ratings and Reviews
Great app, but in need of updates.
My 2.5 year old son loves this app and the show. Pretty intuitive and loaded with features and good information. My son's favorite is to feed the dinosaurs(particularly giganotasaurus ) in X-ray mode and watch the bone go into its belly.
The downsides are 1. once you have bought a bonus pack if the phone gets turned off, you have to restore the packs which involves signing into your apple account. Also, had the app for awhile now and have not had any more of the 'coming soon' bonus packs become available. Some of the creatures that should have been there from the beginning are: pteranodon, peteinosaurus, quetzalcoatlus, plesiosaur, dinosuchus, archelon, paleopetrocus, spinosaurus...
In-app purchase not working
We purchased additional dinosaurs in the app. Every time my child closes the app the purchased dinosaurs disappear. Even when I do restore purchase and they show back up, they disappear when I go back to turn off access to the store.
Should be free or $.99
Not worth $2, it's cute and have a Dino for each letter in the alphabet, with a fact from each but that's all it has nothing more.
