Description

Go around the world and remember everywhere you have been in your whole life journey!

Fog of World is a real-life game that you need to remove the fog on the map by exploring around the world. It's a fantastic way to find out where you have and haven't been in your lifetime.

What a Fun App for the Whole Family!

Purchased the app about a month or so ago and the entire family finds it wonderfully addicting. My kids are paying better attention to geography and where we are going/have been; my wife is reminding me to have either the app or GPS going when we travel; and I am taking new routes to work just to clear some more of the world.

The ability to easily download .gpx files from our GPS device has saved both battery and data usage (plus has allowed us to go up several levels much faster than had we used the phone alone).

Finally, I have been very impressed with the developer's responsiveness to questions about their app. Looking forward to Fog of World 2!

Awesome Concept!

Great idea for an app and fun to use. It makes you realize how much or little you see of the town or city you live in. Could be a good motivator to get out and explore the world around you and break your normal routine. Also helpful for retracing your steps if you can't remember where you found that awesome cafe, shop, restaurant etc.

Only problems are it definitely takes a chunk out of your battery life, so be prepared for that, and if you visit a new country, you'll need to purchase a data plan to track your progress there.

Great job.. Just warn about no GPs on IPod

I love this app!! I use a 5s and it does great with my built in Gps. So I got my brother to get it on his Ipod 5 and it doesn't work at all. I mean I under stand no Gps. Yeah not your fought, But I mean it crashes like crazy! So if use a iPod don't get this app. But If you got a iPhone it's very addicting! But a warning! It will run down your batterie. Oh and if you don't have data it still works which is really great!
