What's New in Version 1.3
Be sure to get this update to include the newly formed country, South Sudan!
Two new game modes also available, through a single $0.99 in-app purchase:
• In Tap and Type, you fill out the map yourself! Tap on a country, state, or province, then type the name at the top. Stars are awarded based on the percent completed — try to fill out each map!
• Discovery Mode is great as a memorization tool or as a quick way to look up the name of a country, state, or province! It's a great place to start when trying to learn a new area. Tap a region to see its name appear for a moment.
• The in-app purchase also removes ads!
Helped me learn all countries of the world in two days
It's sad but true: Before I got this app, I could probably only remember about a quarter of the world's countries. Eastern Europe, Africa, and the Nations in Micronesia were a mystery. What's particularly sad is that my ignorance was probably pretty typical for an American. Anyway, in two days of playing the basic but enjoyable game in this app, I'm happy to say I can list all the countries in the world off the top of my head. I understand world news better and can remember facts about global trends more easily, because this app gave me the ability to "picture" where in the world things are happening. So awesome! If you want to be more informed about world happenings, get this!
Few things in life are 5 star. So this is a solid 4. Just uploaded the .99 cent version. But the free version kept my interest the past month. I'm really poor at geography. So when I saw this I thought I would try it. I spend a lot of time on airplanes. So this is a great way to spend time. Looking forward to the challenge of the full version. More like this please.
FYI the upgrade version lacks the "hint" feature. If you guess a location wrong there is No way of learning the correct location unless you make random guesses. This is Very frustrating. Really kills the ability to learn as you go. You can exit the game and check locations in anther area but that is a pain. Bring back the "hint" feature.
No regrets buying this app. It isn't the most elegant or graphically appealing world map but it works perfectly and provides a fun, easy way to learn or brush up on your geography. There are three modes of game type to choose from: Question and Answer, Tap and Type and Discovery. The first two challenge you to locate and name countries, the third lets you explore the world without a timer or scoring. On the statistics menu you can see your scores for accuracy and completion time for each region.
The good: Great value, simple and effective way to learn the countries of the world, no need to be connected to wifi to play or explore, individual states included when playing the U.S. maps.
The no so good: Graphically no so inspiring
Wish list: I'd love to see country flags included and some topographical features like mountain ranges. Would also be great to name oceans, seas, and capital cities. (Would gladly pay more for those features).
