Good, but very limited science app...

It is a fantastic way to learn and engage students in the three areas of science which they address, but it is only those three very narrow science concepts. For the money that you have to spend they should definitely have way more content. It seems more like a free version that they try to get you to upgrade from, but yet it is not. It would also be nice to draw and label within the app instead of drawing a picture and than taking a photo of it and labeling in the app. Although clever, it can just as easily done in one of the many free whiteboard like apps out there. The same could be said about the videos. It would be just as easy to use a video online and than have the students use an app like Explain Everything (way more worth the $2.99 you will spend) to show their understanding. I would recommend this app only if they were to update it every once in a while with new content, which they haven't done as of yet. So save your money and skip this app!
