What is it
Amazing World OCEAN is an app that introduces the ocean and its inhabitants to children. It is an interactive, audiovisual, 3D encyclopaedia that explores more than 50 ocean species.
Each animal is presented through HD pictures, interactive 3D views, fact and figures, audio narration, authentic animal sounds and size comparison charts.
Users navigate the app by scrolling down through the ocean; when they see something they like they can click on it and find out more.

What our experts think
Amazing Oceans is an interactive information book which is packed with facts about Ocean life. The pictures are engaging and the information will interest children and adults alike!
We thought that the way you scrolled through the ocean from the schools of fish, through the coral reef, dolphins, whales and sharks and finally ended up in the deep ocean was a brilliant, and engaging way, to approach this subject.
We also liked the different ways the information was presented – you could read facts or hear them read; there were also diagrams, statistics, maps, sounds and photographs (some of which were 3D.)
It would be even better if...
We found the font used for the information too small and felt that this could ‘turn off’ some children.
