Brian Cox Wonders of Life App - Review & Giveaway


Available from iTunes on

WOW - this is how best to describe this app.  Brian Cox's Wonders of Life app is visually stunning, awe-inspiring, positively interactive, and educational. I am hooked, there is just so much to explore and see, and I keep going back to learn and see more within the networks of this app.

From the vast networks of subterranean freshwater caverns of the Yucatan peninsula to the unique and precious island of Madagascar, this app will help you uncover the secrets of life in the most unexpected locations and in the most stunning detail.  You’ll learn how everything on Earth, from the smallest paramecium to the largest giraffe, is constructed from the same fundamental building blocks and is subject to the same laws of nature. - Sounds super interesting doesn't it!


  • Pinch to zoom and grasp the magnitude of the Earth and our place within it.
  • Explore objects within Creatures, Locations, Continents, Cells, Elements and Earth.
  • Full text from William Collins title Wonders of the Life by Professor Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen.
  • Two-and-a-half hours of HD BBC footage from the Wonders TV series (requires wifi).
  • High resolution images optimised for the new iPad and iPad Mini 2’s superior screen resolution.
This is not only a lovely app for educating children about animals and the natural world, but also for adults. It includes interesting details of 30 animals and their natural habitats to learn, explore and discover. I thoroughly enjoy this app, and enjoy exploring it with my children, and they are just as captivated by it also.  The included videos are short, detailed and interesting, the pictures and also the written detail on each subject are just as revealing.

To download this fantastic app it does require iOS 7.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.  Please see the Youtube Wonders of Life app video demo below.

The Wonders of Life app was developed for William Collins by the Other Media, the same team behind the best-selling Wonders of the Universe app. As before, the developers at the Other Media were given a free hand to create an app rich in imagery and features.
