This should have been very simple, but they had to complicate it. Instead of a map of the states that you can just tap the location for the state or pick a state name to see where it's located, you have to know the shape of the state out of context of where it falls on the map. There is a blank US map with 3 shape choices for the state named covering the center of the map. You have to make your choice based on your knowledge of exact state shapes without any idea where it actually falls on the map. I was hoping this would be good for my 6 yr old, but he quickly lost interest.
Love this app!
My four-year old has been playing this nonstop stop since we added it. The graphics are very nice and the interface is intuitive and smooth. It's been a great addendum to his geography lessons at preschool, and now he looks and maps and knows which states and what their capitals are. Totally worth the money.
This app is good but needs a few things to be great. First, there should be a game that allows you to point to a state and then choose the correct name from 3 choices. The map could be panned and zoomed.
Maybe a reset button to start a game over if you want to.
Otherwise this is a neat app and my 5 year old likes to use it.
Keep up the good work. Looking toward to updates and similar apps. How about a space app with the planets?
