Lots of Fun
If you love maps and learning about new places, get this app. It has many of the popular places we all know but it also has interesting places I never knew about. My favorite is the quiz where you have to zoom into a landmark. My kids and I have been having a lot of fun with it. Add more locations in an update please!
