Overview

Planet Earth HD is a comprehensive, interactive ebook that provides kids with tons of great information about planet Earth. With information on the continents, weather cycles, the solar system, and so much more, this ebook is incredibly well-rounded and allows children to learn and explore all there is to know about our wonderful planet.

Quality

Planet Earth HD is full of incredible interactive images with crystal clear clarity that children are going to love as they follow along with the story. The developers have made it easy for children to move through the app with narration options and arrows at the bottom of each page to indicate how to move on. With simple tap and touch functioning, even young children can enjoy listening to the information as they explore the interactive images through out. Overall, this app is very well done.

Education

There is no doubt that Planet Earth HD is loaded with awesome information for children to learn. Perfect for use in the classroom, this app teaches children information about the continents, solar system, weather cycles, the ocean and so much more! Each page offers lots of great information to go along with the fabulous interactive images that add to the overall learning experience.

While it does offer great info and images, the developers have not included text highlighting as part of the features which may make it difficult for young children to follow along. The other downside is that each page has so much text and information that it can be easy for little ones to get lost or overwhelmed. Separating the text a bit and adding text-highlighting would definitely help children move through the app with more ease so they can process the wonderful information.

Entertainment

Planet Earth HD comes equipped with over 200 interactive images that help bring the story to life. The sound effects also add to the overall experience which adds a bit of interest to the story. While the images are great, they aren’t all that engaging for little ones who may easily get bored. One thing that would definitely increase the entertainment value of the app is adding a few games or quizzes.

Value

Priced at just under three dollars this app is a steal! With all of the information included, parents and children are getting lots of great educational information along with fantastic interactive images for a price that won’t break the bank. Even without some of the extra bells and whistles, this app is a great value.

Child Friendliness

The developers have done a nice job overall keeping this app easy to use and safe too. With narration options and arrows at the bottom of each page to help children move through the story, kids will have no trouble playing with this app. The developers have also done a nice job making sure there are no external links, in-app purchases, or advertisements that might distract readers from the story.

The only things that would make this app more child friendly and easier to use would be adding text-highlighting and spreading out the text on each page a bit more. Other than that, parents will be happy with what this app has to offer.

  • NO social media
  • NO external links
  • NO in-app purchase
  • NO 3rd party ads

Planet Earth HD is an incredible educational app that has everything you would want to know about our fabulous planet. Educational, interactive, and great for children of all ages.
