Recommended Videos

The American Museum of Natural History has just unleashed a free app for the iPhone and iPod Touch that allows users to learn about dinosaurs and enrich their museum experience even without the guidance of funnyman Ben Stiller.

“Dinosaurs: The American Museum of Natural History Collections,” features a photomosaic of more than 800 pictures of dinosaurs, with additional information on some of the museum’s most popular exhibits.

From the press release:

Combining scientific research with over 800 stunning images from the Museum’s vast archives, this pioneering interactive mosaic provides dinosaur enthusiasts an entirely new way to discover the Museum’s premier paleontology collection–and to become experts in the process. Packed with information about six of the Museum’s most popular dinosaur fossils, including the famed Tyrannosaurus rex and the Barosaurus, DINOSAURS digs deep to bring amateur paleontologists the science behind selected fossils, stories about their discoveries, and profiles of the fossil-hunters who uncovered them. The images are enhanced with social networking functionality, enabling users to share favorite images with friends, post comments, and view comments left by others.

A veritable pocket field guide, DINOSAURS: American Museum of Natural History Collections can also be used while exploring the Museum’s famous halls to learn more about the fascinating fossils on display. DINOSAURS will be updated with new “stories” with in-depth information about additional dinosaur species, including such favorites as the Triceratops.

You can download the app here.
