This appears to be the update to "USA factbook and quiz"
USA factbook and quiz appeared on the application store a week or two ago but with several errors and ommissions marring an otherwise beautiful program. The developer was taken to task because of an error about the capital of Illinois. This was corrected in an update from Chicago to Springfield. I'm not sure about the original version having the city data but the update cited above did not. It is just a blank field. Now I found USA factbook "free" which seems to be the complete corrected program and unless I hear differently I will uninstall the original.
Landscape doesn't always switch with portrait when going to different screens. I'm finding myself having to go further into the app, switch to either layout in order to get that benefit on other screens that wouldn't switch. In those cases some options can't be seen in some layouts. Kind of frustrating but livable for now.
I agree with one other review that the maps are useless without the zoom feature, more so with iPhone screens! That should be pretty common by now to have that capability if you are making apps!
This is an excellent app with a lot of great info for adults or children. What I cannot figure out, my ignorance- is why were certain cities picked. I thought it would be state capitals. Yes, they all are major cities & must have contributed somehow, but it would be great if they were in alphabetical order. Otherwise, it is a great app. Adding any historical wars, would be great, although maybe not in scope of this app. Thank you
