Do you ask yourself sometimes, where in the USA is this state and what is its capital? This application shows each state of the USA on the map. Either select it from the list or jump around randomly (with shake gesture).
Runs in portrait and landscape mode.

Ratings and Reviews
Given modest goals of the app, the design and interface seem pretty weak
Interface is clumsy -- e.g., if you are in the drop down menu of states and you click on one, it won't come up on the map until you tap the screen first to press "done" to exit the drop down menu (it is not obvious that you need to do so). And what is the purpose of having the separate list of states as opposed to the cylinder list? There is an annoying time lag in getting the identified state to appear on the map. Also, it would be nice to have a way to identify (on the map) the states that immediately surround the state you picked.
This app could be very useful for someone with poor geography sense, but it needs work. Ideally, of course, there would be a way to call up a more detailed map of each state.
Should have read the reviews first
Was expecting this to help me study last minute but I find it hard when you cannot zoom in and everything is so small. Landscape would be helpful, and I wish it had asked where some states where rather than you having to pick one. Overall pretty annoying and a waste of money... looking up state map on google is more helpful + free
From the description I was expecting an app my son could use to practice where the states are located. That's not what this program does. First you have to be hooked up to the internet and instead of a program asking you to point out where a state is located, you have to ask it "where is a particular state" and then it highlights it for you. Not very helpful to quiz young children on state locations.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
