Fascinating and engaging, for the armchair science enthusiast or student, but... As an app, at 2.32GB!! Yes, you read that right, 2.32GB - when ancillary files are downloaded and uncompressed. Meaning this great science resource app is likely unavailable to a big range of devices. This is a basic design issue, and one that could be corrected easily by allowing the resource files to be saved to SD card. I can barely fit this on my Sony Tablet with my other stuff, and had to remove a lot just to accomodate it in the first place. Please consider the ability to place resources on the SD card. Horizon is a wonderful archive, and this app should be usable on many more devices.
