Our aircraft carriers
Nice app; I liked it. The histories of our USN ships was, I feel, done quite well and except for the lack of color in pictues of years long past, what's not to like about the pictures?
One problem I saw is that there is a whole class of carriers (many ships) that are missing - the CVE's, also know as the Jeep Carriers that performed so admirably in WWII. I emailed the developer and the response was that the CVE's would "... probably be available within a month" (the second week of May 2012) - I can't wait!
Like their Battleships app, this app is a great idea that is poorly executed. There are numerous spelling errors, wrong pictures and many buttons are mislabeled. For example, under USS Essex, one of the pictures is of the Enterprise CV6. Lexington CV16's history button is labeled USS Monterey. There are literally dozens of errors like these, including run-ons in the menu, like USS EnterpriseCVN-65 (should be a space between "Enterprise" and "CVN-65"). Both this app and the Battleships app need extensive proofreading and should not rely on some automated system they may be using to pull data. Great "fun" potential, but sloppiness ruins it.
Update: I actually DOWNGRADED my review to ONE star. Of all the typos, mislabeled buttons and mistakes in this, they fix a grand total of 1 thing (ONE!?) in the new version - and its not actually fixed! The Saratoga still has the Ranger's history! "Wow" is all I can say and that's not in a good way. Easily a five star app reduced to a one star disappointment, all because of not even applying simple proofreading skills. If I were the developers, I would be embarrassed.
I will gladly update this review towards the positive (I don't like giving 1 star to apps) if the developer shows even the least bit of interest and pride in their own app. And the Battleship app could undergo a spell check too while you are at it.
Update 2: Things are a little better, but more work needs to be done. For example:
Saratoga CV60 still has Ranger CV61's history.
Harry S Truman is CVN75, not CVN73
One of the Essex'x CV9 pictures is of Enterprise CV6 (Builders Trial)
