Ratings and Reviews
An excellent app, providing extensive detail on each of the world's nations, courtesy of the CIA. While some will no doubt have reservations about the CIA worldview, and regard some of the commentaries as providing only one side of a story (I.e., the US version ...), such reservations are quite misplaced. This large repository of information provides extensive details on all aspects of a nation, with demographically, trade, health, social statistics, as well as political matters. As it is regularly updated, it provides an excellent source of information for many purposes, especially if you are travelling or are interested in world events. Those who don't accept the US worldview can still find this app useful, as it provides a clear picture of that view.
Vital app, but latest updates crash app
Latest three updates now cause the app the crash when opened on my iPhone 4S.
Review of pre-crash app:
Informative and easy to use. Variety of maps available blow away the competition, even those from well known brands.
Great app - but
Love the app, but the regional maps all load on their side. When I turn the tablet they turn as well. Therefore, are always on their side. A pain trying to read with my neck at 90 degrees.
