What's New in Version 2.3.1
Fixes for iOS 8 issues
Fixes for in-app purchase issues
Don't work no more
What has happened, this app was working fine until recently. Uninstalled and reinstalled but to no avail. Come on get a grip and get your finger out and get it working again. Or perhaps you might want to refund those of us how have paid you for the privilege of having our money in your account?
Political globe is buggy and incomplete
The main globe is fine and useful, but the Political Globe IAP is easy to confuse, causes crashes to Homescreen and has terrible performance (iPhone 5S). It also lacks important political boundaries such as Territorial, Provincial and State boundaries in the US and Canada, and national boundaries in the United Kingdom.
This is great. You pay £1.49, download it and it doesn't work. It won't even open. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, powered off etc. Nothing. A black screen appears for a few seconds, then closes and you are back to the iPad home page.
A really great investment if you like throwing money away.
