World of Dinosaurs takes advantage of the fact that we are currently living in the golden age for dinosaur discovery and presents comprehensive information based on the latest discoveries and scientific theory, within a beautiful multimedia presentation. World of Dinosaurs includes amazing high-definition original illustrations, which along with the accompanying information creates the ultimate dinosaur resource covering dinosaurs of all time, discovery, extinction and even dinosaur ancestors still alive today.
The education app World of Dinosaurs takes you to those prehistoric times in a single tap. As soon as you enter the land before time, rotate your device left to right to get a 360-degree view of the illustrated landscape. (Tip: Use your headphones for an immersive soundscape experience as you enter the Mesozoic Era.)
World of Dinosaurs is an informative, interactive tool for the next time you're working on a project, presentation or simply want to satisfy your dino curiosity. From the Table of Contents, tap on the Dinosaurs section and use the magnifying glass to browse through an extensive A to Z list of dinosaur species. On the Discovery tab, view detailed infographics on fossil formation and dinosaur intelligence.
The app's amazing AR experience enhances users' learning experience too. Choose from five dinosaurs from the AR Dinosaurs tab and, in the blink of an eye, you'll find one of those massive creatures hanging out right by your desk. If your friends don't believe you, take a picture and send it to them - it will be roar-some!

Ratings and Reviews
Very nice, but two things need fixing...
While WOD is both impressive and entertaining, I did find two glitches that need some attention. First is that the information page for Troodon is in Spanish. Now, if I were fluent in Spanish this really wouldn't be much of an issue. Sadly, I'm no good at reading or speaking Spanish, so this is a bit of a bummer for me. The second thing is the image for Iguanodon doesn't display, even though its information page does. Instead of the intended image showing up, I get the far left portion of the previous dinosaur's image (regardless of which direction I approach from). Kind of odd, I must say. But even with these two issues I still think the app is very well done. Could use a few more dinosaurs, though... and pterosaurs, too... some more marine reptiles would really nice, as well, and maybe you folks could toss in some crocodyliformes just to be sure, OK? Thanks a bunch, and keep up the good work! ;-)
OK, as of August 22, 2018, I just updated to the latest version and now it won’t let me do anything but change the icon. Not sure what is going on, but I even restarted my iPhone and it made no difference. Any advice on how to solve this issue would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
August 23, 2018 update: Great job getting the bug in version 6.4 fixed!! A very fast turnaround that really earns a lot of praise for your efforts; well done!

We are sorry for that issue. Please update the latest version (6.4.1) to fix the problem. We would be grateful if you edit your rate and review. Thank you.
Is 4.9 an option??
This app is great. Bought it for my 2 year old son who has this awesome fascination with dinosaurs. Bought it only for the AR portion but the rest of the app seems fantastic and as my son grows, he will continue to enjoy the rest of what this app has to offer. Giving the app a 4 out of 5 because when using the AR everything but the dinosaur seems blurry. So taking a photo of my son next to a T-Rex is great but wish he was clear in the image. Truthfully maybe I am doing something wrong when taking the photo on my iPhone X, but I’m not sure. Giving a 4 out of five because 4.9 out of 5 is not an option.

Thank you !. It is so great to hear that you enjoyed the app. If the camera is blur, it is because of either your device camera mega pixels is low or the camera did not focus properly.
Horrible app not reference
Worst app I have ever purchased. Not worth anything unless you are under 5 years of age. I really expected more from this app. It should not be under reference. I was looking for an app that could provide easy alphabetical access and this was not it. Preview images are misleading.
Edited to respond to dev: I am accessing this app on the iPhone X. After dedicating more time than this app is worth to see if the 🔍 would appear on any part of the app, I finally managed to access it under very strict and specific circumstances. You must go to the pull up menu and click back on “dinosaurs” this will bring up the panoramic image and the 🔍 will appear- if you move your phone or touch anywhere else the 🔍 icon will disappear (doesn’t matter if you are using the accelerometer view or scroll view). It does not appear under any other circumstances or on any other page or even in the pop up menu (where it belongs). I have sent screen shots of this issue directly to the devs and I hope they will fix this. Until this is fixed the app is not worth it and my one star review will stand. The 🔍 icon should not be an Easter egg that the user has to find.
I paid for this app and I want to be able to use it as an educational resource. I want it to work. I would be more than happy to amend the rating and review if and when it becomes what it claims to be.
