    "More a monitoring app than an actual Science application, this thing is good if you're curious on how our planet is doing with all the gasses and whatnot. A good reference for a writer, all this is really going to do is freak you out about how bad our planet is getting and how quickly as well."

    "I never expected to enjoy learning about the brain as much as I did using this app. Not only is it free but it has a wealth content that references actual case studies rather than just feeling like something somebody lazily put together. I actually do suggest paying for the HD in app purchase just because the graphics are a bit low resolution, I did and it made a big difference."

    "I used to like this app when I first started using it. There was a lot of information and lots of updates. Lately, there has been no updates and there has been tons of ads. Sad to see this app become this horrible."
