I actually had 2 copies of the real book, but then 1 got wet and had to go and the other is just lost. So this will give me some good feelings. 😃🐊🐍

Recently purchased this app for my daughter, who loves dinosaurs. Should have read more reivews first. While this app looks great and looks like it contains a lot of fun information that my daughter would love, we will never know. It crashes every time we open it, right after viewing the first dinosaur's stats-and I do mean every time. I have never gotten to view more than 1 dinosaur. Seems from reading many of the reviews, that this app needs to be updated to be compatible with IOS 8. Nat Geo, please fix this immediately. I spent $5.00 on this app, which is a lot in the app world, and want to see it fixed. Plus, my daughter was very dissapointed that she could not use the app. Once it is working again, I'll be happy to up my rating but until then it gets only 1 star (would have given it 0 stars as the app doesn't even work, but Apple doesn't allow that option).

National Graphic is usually AMAZING in everything they do, but I've got to tell you, as much as it pains me... this app needs a LOT of work. Swiping from page to page crashes the program at times. The menu for the videos (which are very, very short, like ten of fifteen seconds short) is in portrait orientation only, but the videos are in landscape, so you have to spin the iPad around again and again. If you play "The Story" on one of the individual dinosaur pages and swipe to another page during the playback, the playback just keeps going and going. You have to pick another option (Dino Stats, Fun Fact or Picture Info) to stop the playback. This little glitch is particularly annoying. There are other minor glitches that make the whole app feel poorly constructed and not very well thought out. I, like most others who have purchased this app, are sitting by with our fingers crossed that a magic patch will come along and bring this C- app up to the A+ status we all think National Geographic should maintain.

If your Child or Grandchild loves Dinosaurs, this is the best I've found! It lets the children either read the story themselves or it reads it to them! A great way for them to learn the pronunciation of the Dinosaur names. Even adults have trouble from time to time with pronouncing the names but this book is awesome! It also puts the Dinosaurs into different categories, i.e. meat eaters, plant eaters...etc. A great way to spend quality time with your child while they are learning 😀
A good update's Review of Ultimate DinopediaReviewed on 11/18/18 7:36 PM
The app is extraordinary and extremely informational. However, maybe you should try considering adding animation to the pictorials along with environmental sounds ( e.g Alice app). Second allow landscape viewing. Lastly, you should add as a bonus section the prehistoric mammals that appeared after the extinction event of 65 m.y.a. The above would make your app the best there ever will be of this genre. Excellent job though.

Doesn't run well. Options stall or won't start. Dinosaur from A to Z have all the same images, so it is impossible to know which is which.

I can't wait to share this with my son. A very cool interactive book with excellent illustrations. The hilarious over-the-top reading voice in the Dino-Facts just cracks me up. Dinosaurs, Hard-Boiled! Strong work.

The reviews here are not accurate so I have to assume written or sponsored by the developer. This is an encyclopedia and that is it. It is NOT interactive in any way. It is a book. That is all. Definitely not for young kids. My 4 year old turned away in 1 minute and said "It's too old for me" There is no sound, no animation - not worth the price tag when there is far better out there like Dinosaur Zoo. AVOID THIS.
