It is Friday yet again! I am in denial that the first week of August is behind us, but I will be happy when this triple digit Texas heat wave has passed! With it being way too hot to spend much of any time outside, I have had time to dig and find some fun FREE apps for today's Free App Friday Android edition. Learn about science, get creative, race and explore the universe with these FREE apps!
I really wish I were Neil DeGrasse Tyson.
I feel like that's what it would take to do justice to Back in Time by Landka Apps. This beautiful app gives you the history of . . . well . . . everything, and it really seems like something our friend Neil should know about. It's an overwhelming amount of information, but Back in Time makes it accessible through a 24-hour clock and linear timelines that allow you to put everything into its proper context. This trip across the universe will keep you (oh, and your child) completely mesmerized with video clips, fun facts and an amazing soundtrack worthy of a film.
When I was growing up, my Dad was very interested in stars and we would spend long summer nights as a family in the field behind my house star gazing. I wish Kiwaka would have been have been a "thing" when I was young. Constellations that light up the night sky light up your child's iPad screen in this sweet app.
Back in Time, by Landka Apps brings the history of the universe and civilization into the palms of you hands with this gorgeously designed app. Easy navigation based on a 24-hour clock and linear visual timelines make the vastness of this information easier to put in context. This thoroughly engaging look at the universe is brought to life with video clips, interesting facts (did you know the "Big Bang" got its name from an opponent of the theory?) and a soothing soundtrack.
