March of the Dinosaurs is an interactive storybook from the creators of other great apps like the Elements and X is for X-Ray (REVIEW) in association with National Geographic. Expect lots of interactivity including sound, models, video, images and more.
The story follows the ‘March of the Dinosaurs’ as they face the coldest winter known, the content is factual and very interesting. I loved the way the content is read out, when you flick a page the paragraph is read and content is displayed. Videos are played occasionally to narrate the story and these are of a very high quality. I also liked the dinosaurs section that is very similar to X is for X-ray that allows you to spin 3D models around and see the dinosaur running. The file size for this type of content is relatively small and around 500 MB.
I have no negative points for this app, it is a brilliant iPad experience.
March of the Dinosaurs is a perfect storybook that will keep any child interested and enlightened. This is a brilliant example of how a storybook should be displayed on the iPad with the right amount of interactivity to not feel over done. I highly recommend this app for anyone with an iPad and interest in dinosaurs.
