Not Flashy But Fun and Useful
I downloaded this app for my family to learn the states as the election results were rolling in. The format made it easy and fun to learn as a family. Highly recommended.
I thought the games were self explanatory, but if you have any troubles there is an "I" button in the upper left corner of the opening screen of the app that explains how things work.
Great for learning the states
This was great for learning the states. It would be nice to know which states get missed to review the trouble spots. I don't see that in the full version either so we looked for a different solution when reviewing states and capitals
The place where you study has answers that are covered by a button, so even if you know the answer you can't put it in. It crashes a lot when you go back to home page. In the pop quiz section the states you've answered don't light up or animate. Boring and flawed design.
