LOVE this App!!!!
Very cool!!!! We love this app, and we are learning so much!!! It is simple, fun, colorful and accurate!!! Definitely one of our favorite apps!!!!
I can't believe I paid for this junk and I wish I could get my money back! I have children under 7 years of age whom were excited to learn geography. But this thing is just a google map that you can color, this thing only said the name of the color and the assigned number to the color, you can find free apps that teach colors and numbers.
I was hoping this app would say the name of the country or city so that my kids could repeat and learn the country and city names.
This app is geared towards Tweens and teenagers that could already read, because it does not speak out the names of the map locations being clicked on.
It is just like staring at a picture without knowing what one is staring at. Horrible! I hope the makers of this app update this! This is the biggest regret of an app that I own and it will teach your children nothing! Please screws this issue immediately!
I hate it! Would only be happy if I get my money back or if they stop deceiving people and actually teach the kids geography with voice over of the country and or city and state being clicked on in the languages selected, until then this is a no good piece of junk App!
A lot of those good reviews are probably from paid reviewers, there are people and agencies that get paid to write good reviews to deflect reviews like mine! Run away from this app until it is fixed with the main issues that I said, it is deceiving and does not deliver what promised with the exception of teaching colors and numbers, so why call it a World App if the kids will not be learning of the world but just starring at google maps, something that anyone can do for free! If not say that this is an app for teenagers and adults that already know the part of the world and map that they are looking at. This app needs to become more interactive, what is the point of just looking at a map that has no directions for kids, not enough voice over!
FIX IT! Or give me my Money back!
