Dinosaur Zoo | fantastic Dinosaur app for kids of the Apple Ad
We have had many requests on the Dinosaur app, which has been on the Apple ad’s for quite some time now. We want to introduce you to not just any Dinosaur app for children, we want to show you a fantastic educational Dinosaur app: Dinosaur Zoo!
Apple has chosen this awesome Dinosaur app for a good reason, as it is visually stunning, has received many prizes and awards and is also offered at some Dinosaur Museums, as part of the exhibition.
The Dinosaur Zoo app – background and market trend
We have been sussing this app out a while back and at that time, this kids app had in-app purchases, which are now, thankfully available for free!
Inside this app you can download 5 more upgrades of more Dinosaurs for free, which are really worth downloading onto your iPad or iPhone.
Especially after the in-app purchases have been removed by the App developers, they kind of rely on good sales figures, so we’re more than happy to support them, especially so more extensions can be added to this awesome app. The app is a real bargain at the moment actually with only costing $ 2.99, considering that the app used to cost over 10 US-Dollars plus the in-app purchases used to cost $ 0.99 each on top of that.
We really hope that Dinosaur Zoo with it’s massive price reduction, will find a solid place in the App Store charts, but we must say we found this change remarkable and really worth mentioning in this app review. Now, let’s talk about the content.
The Dinosaurs of this Dinosaur Zoo app
Including all free extensions this app has 21 Dinosaurs all together, from which three are presented as actual “living skeletons”. All Dinsosaurs have been placed on a beautiful and individual background, which used to be their natural environment. All Dinosaurs are interactive and animated and have a little surprise up their sleeves, which you won’t find straight away. Some Dinosaurs will react via finger touch on the screen, whereas others also interact when the iPad or iPhone is tilted. We’re really happy about the fact that this app is also available for the iPhone, which is not always taken for granted, especially with educational apps as such.
You can tell that there have been experts working on this app, by looking at all of the dinosaurs and their names. Many of which are not necessarily well known or popular, besides the Tyrannosaurus, Brachiosaurus or Triceratops, which almost any kids knows by now.
Be prepared for a very adventurous journey through this Dinosaur app, where kids can freely explore and discover.
Triceratops, Spinosaurus, Euplocephalus, Pterodactylus, Brachiosaurus, Muttaburrasaurus, Tarbosaurus, Lipleurodon, Metoposaurus, Velciraptor, Compognathus, Carcharodon, Moshops, Dimetrodon, Argentinosaurus, Kronosaurus, Tyrannosaurus, Ornithocheirus, Nemegtosaurus, Kentrosaurus, Monolophosaurus.
Isn’t it remarkably cute how those huge creatures hatch out of these rather small eggs? By the way, those chaps are called Nemegtosaurus, which were most probably the biggest Dinosaurs of all. You can find all interesting fact about your favourite Dinosaur in this app too.
Kids app: Dinosaur facts
With each Dinosaur come some interesting facts and informations, which have also been given some awesome illustrations, thereunder a Dinosaur model which can be turned 360 degrees.
The child-friendly and short texts will interest many children and adults, you will be informed about the paleontological features, habitats of the fossils and always a comparison of the Dinosaur to a human. We really like the presentation of the lifetime, where the continents are shown from today and then back to the Cretaceous age via animation. Kids will also see the differences between the continents and the change of the world.
Dinosaur Zoo belongs to the most lavishing produced educational apps for kids and we are extremely delighted and overwhelmed, especially as the App producers are going to extend and update this app constantly and also are also always open for any suggestions.
Some Dinosaurs are a little blurry, maybe it’s because they are moving, which is supposed to create some sort of dynamic. It just doesn’t look very nice when you take a screenshot or stop the animations, especially with the T-Rex. We also think that the animations could be a little bit more liquid.
We would also love to be able to move the 3D Dinosaur model 360 degrees ourselves with our fingers.
This is of course complaining on high level. The Dinosaur app is an outstanding educational kids app, which is also fun for adults. Even for those who are only vaguely interested in Dinosaurs will most probably get stuck on this one and really interest everybody.
A lot has been left unmentioned, for example that not only terrestrial Dinosaurs are introduced in this app, but also Marine Dinosaurs and the time shark. We also love the sounds and sound effects, which underlines each scene individually. Sometimes it’s a little difficult to find all the secret features, perhaps a button for the little ones would be good, so they can get easier to the surprising effects.
Preschoolers need to be aware that the app has no speech output. If you love this app as much as we do, then you might want to leave a comment ont the App Store, the App developers would really appreciate the gesture and may also hurry up with the new expansion Pack 6
