This looks awesome, except for some of the common mistakes (naked dromaeosaurs, etc.). Also, Tenontosaurus is shown once again as just being Deinonychus fodder, and Spinosaurus is shown as being all-powerful (is it throwing a Suchomimus in the first few seconds?). But the encyclopedia of paleontologists, as well as the cool graphics and the fact that Stephen Fry is narrating it all make up for it, at least to me.

I got this app for the iPad just the other day. I have to say its the greatest dinosaur app I have ever (and possibly will ever) own. Even though its $14, it's for sure woth it! Dinoraul's models are the best in that app!
It's an evil pony, made of hopes and wonders! Deal with it!
I just bought this app as well. I really like it. I sure hope they gave DinoRaul due credit. Even though you can purchase his models on many 3d vendor sites for under $20, I hope they didn't just buy them and forget about the talented creator that made this product better than the rest. There are lots of animations, you can rotate every model and expand everything to full screen. At first glance the information looks good too. I really reccomend this.
I just checked the credits of the app. Not a single mention of Dino Raul ( I forget his real name) and many other modelers are credited. So if there was ever a cautionary tale of selling your content online for cheap and forgoing all of your rights to them this is it. I would not have bought this app if his models were not featured.
