iPad App Review - Auracle HD - Fossil

~ Posted on Friday, August 24, 2012 at 5:43 PM ~

When I saw the press release of this app, I immediately requested to review it as my 3 years old boy is a fan of all things dinosaur and bones and skeletons at the moment. I thought this app will make a good opportunity for me to teach him about dinosaurs and their bones and etc. My review as below...

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* I was not a fan of watercolored illustrations before this but I think my perception has changed after trying out this app. The drawings on each page is simply breathtakingly beautiful!

* I used the opportunity in this app to teach my 3 years old boy how each bones from the dinosaur came with a story, how a mother dinosaur cared for its babies too!
