1st Dino App From The AMNH

The American Museum of National History has recently released the first official dinosaur app, Dinosaurs: American Museum of Natural History Collections, for iPhone users.

The Dinosaur app comprises more than 800 images from the Museum’s archive, woven together to create a striking image of the world’s most famous dinosaur, the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Users can zoom into the mosaic and inspect individual photos, tap the info button to flip the photos and read stimulating information about the science and personalities of the Museum’s world-famous fossil collection. Each interactive photograph has information of where the fossil was found and the paleontologist who uncovered it. link
