  • Just to say I care

    by Seatac33

    I won't be able to look at the photos in this app, for I know it would crush me to see the heartbreaking destruction and the pain and bewilderment in the eyes of the people affected by this horrible tragedy. I purchased this app expressly to encourage others to buy it as well, and to say thanks to Kodansha Ltd and to all of the photographers for their generous and caring contribution towards helping the people of Japan. This is truly a wonderful thing you have done, and may blessings return to you a hundredfold. May the people of Japan find comfort in knowing that there are people from all walks of life and from all over the entire world who are upholding them in caring thoughts and heartfelt prayers.

  • Exceptional

    by Michael_Steinberg

    Fine photographs of an almost incomprehensible disaster--what photojournalism can be at its best. Navigation a bit clunky, and captions are at the end of each photog's work. It could take better advantage of the iPad but it's still powerful and absorbing as an app.
