Undoubtedly this is one of the best educational apps, period. There are many things that are notable about it. First, the journey through the many chapters contained in this app is smooth and simple. There is no overbearing language, or complicated text. Every chapter is perfectly laid out for a young child to be able to read and understand.
Second, the app truly takes you on a journey through space. It contains 40 pages, each of which is a comprehensive lesson on the wonders of space. The learning experience includes the stars, galaxies and the Solar System, information about Astronauts, the International Space Station, a time-line of the monumental and history changing events and more.
Third, the time line, as mentioned above, takes you through each of the milestone accomplishments in the race into space. This all starts with the launch of a rocket into space in the 1920s, all the way to present day.
Fourth, the app includes hundreds of fascinating facts about every aspect of space, such as the average temperatures of each planet in our Solar System, what Saturn's rings are made of, how long a year on Pluto is - in comparison to a year on Earth, and that every few hundred years Pluto and Neptune switch places as the planet farthest from the Sun.
There are many amazing points about this app that could be covered, but there factually is not enough time in the day. It is a fantastic app!
