    "A decent encyclopedia app, I'll give them that, but the title of the app says it all. Dinosaurs and for kids. Other people will have fun to a certain extent but eventually you'll realize you're not eight years old and dinosaurs aren't very fun to learn about after a while. Would like to see a more expansive encyclopedia."
