Bison bonasus app review: explore the Bison



We have an app that is both educational and beautiful that will allow you to explore the life of the Bison through a series of stunning photographs. The Bison bonasus app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone takes a look at what just happens to be the heaviest surviving wild land animal found in Europe, also known as the European Bison. This tour of the Bison is done through a series of photographs taken by Polish nature photographer Krzysztof Onikijuk. There are more than 100 pictures to explore.

Get Close to Nature

The Bison bonasus app gives users a chance to get up close and personal with nature and in this case it is the Bison. As mentioned you are given more than 100 photographs to flip through of the European Bison as well as other creatures found in the Bialowieza Forest. This forest just so happens to be a pretty important part of nature in itself as it is the last of the remaining parts of the primeval forest. This forest used to span across the European Plain.

The app requires iOS 7.1 to use and doesn't yet have a customer rating or updates since it is a brand-new release. It does, however, already have customer comments which absolutely rave about its beauty and the amount of information found in it. The app's price tag feels extremely reasonable considering it feels more like a high-quality expensive coffee table book than an app.
