A: Just press for 2 or 3 seconds over the fact, a menu with the available sharing options will appear
Q: How can I change the speech speed?
A: The speed of the speech is controlled by the TTS engine installed with Android. It can be set up by going to:
Settings --> Voice input & output settings --> Text to speech settings --> speech rate
Q: I don't like the voice. How can I improve it?

I think you will like this collection to learn with fun.
it is collection of simple quetions and answers of daily life science.
this app is helpful to prepare compitative examinations which asks from general science.
You can learn the old way through books and boring lectures or learn SMART.
For the price of a cup of Starbucks coffee and the time it takes to drink it, this app can make you an Electromagnetism GURU.
No more boring videos and books which try to TEACH.
This app encourages you to LEARN.
Like a musical instrument, Science is best learnt by doing, trying and making mistakes.
The Science Game heralds a revolution in learning. It is a fun app to learn school science through games on a touchscreen device. Over 200 concepts in Electromagnetism - magnets, coils, dynamos and motors come alive as you play games and experiment to understand Faraday's laws and Fleming's rules. The white-box experiments go way beyond laboratory experiments. You can see the molecules, the electric current and the fields and form a clear picture in your head of how these things work.
You can challenge friends and groups of players and share the fun of genuine learning.
How does a microphone work? What is a Cathode Ray Tube? Can electromagnets be used to make electric bells? Can we measure the force on a current carrying wire in a magnetic field? Through interactive games based on science, the Science Game makes it possible to learn all this by doing.
Never before has science been so much fun.

Massive skulls, powerful jaws, two heavy-duty legs and two teeny-tiny arms. And don’t forget the large, bone-crunching teeth. Most of us picture all tyrannosaurs like the iconic T. rex. But is this true?
Tyrannosaurs were, in fact, a very diverse group of meat-eating dinosaurs that thrived in the Northern Hemisphere for over 100 million years during the Jurassic and Cretaceous Periods (from 165 to 66 million years ago). Eventually, some of this group became the world’s top predators. Only a mass extinction event halted their dominance.

Hatch your dinosaur eggs and collect them all!
Hunt for clues and reveal the secret behind the formidable dinosaurs that make up the tyrannosaurs group.
