What's New in Version 1.0.1
- fixed a weather updating issue
- fixed small bugs
First the good: Beautiful interface. Good descriptions and accurate place names as per the UNITED NATIONS. (It's sea of Japan)
Now the bad: not universal. These days it's just cheap not to make your app universal. Also the lack of interesting places in Africa, South America and Asia is disturbing. These places are not empty land with no culture! The fact they are not well know in the west is the REASON they should be in and EDUCATIONAL app!!!
Please see UNESCO world heritage list for ideas if you need some!
Bottom line: this app is better looking than Barefoot World Atlas but because this app is not universal and because its so western-centric I have to give the edge to the competition. Sorry.
I just noticed this app is from 3planesoft! They're the guys who make those amazing breathtakingly beautiful animated wallpapers for the PC. I love those wallpapers (if only they weren't so expensive and if I had enough money to purchase their wallpapers). Knowing from their wallpapers, their animations/rendering are amazing. I haven't checked the app yet but I'll update my review when I do.
Luv this App but could use some improvements
Fell in love with it as soon as I downloaded it. I sucked at geography and I love the learning in 3D style. I'm learning where places are around the world with their names in color and that is very exciting. Also I love the moving images... However need more US landmarks like our mountains and forests and major cities etc...but very grateful for it still :-)
