Five Star AR app, but

It needs a way to get to the the fossil/habitat info/videos without the lights on in the room…

Easily one of the coolest apps I’ve ever purchased.

Short version: It’s only $3 for on-demand David Attenborough in your pocket.

Longer version: I almost never write reviews. As a man in his 30’s with no children you might wonder why I purchased and played with this app. The AR works extremely well on my phone, the narration is fantastic and informative. And it’s just generally *really cool*. I have to be honest though, having watched MANY David Attenborough documentaries I knew I was in for a treat. Can’t wait to show my cats!!

Very cool

I have always loved Attenborough for his amazing documentaries, so this was a no brainer! I can’t wait to see more animal exhibits added and the three that are currently available were presented beautifully.
