Dear Parent or Teacher,

This project is a labor of love for me. I originally developed this map puzzle game for my 3 year old daughter after I read a study in a parenting magazine about the poor geography skills typical of today's children.

My daughter has been my lil’ tester while my team & I continue to refine the app to be fun, easy-to-use and educational. After our initial iPad version of Kids Maps was so well received, I decided to figure out a way to bring the fun to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Depending on the success of this game, additional maps may follow.

I sincerely hope your children enjoy all the fun and education built into my Kids Maps U.S. Pocket Edition Puzzle Game as much as my daughter does – I hope to continue releasing more kid-friendly games, too.

If you have feedback or any technical issues, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to your input!

Thanks again for contributing to my daughter’s college fund!

Great version for iPhone

We collect the full sized iPad series for our 2 kids, and this is a great version for the iPhone. Perfect for keeping the kids busy while sitting in a waiting room at the Doc's office. I like the added regions, which makes it different enough that for the extra $.99 you get a different experience. Bravo. Well worth the investment to support a fellow Dad and his efforts. Keep em' coming!

Great version for my phone

I am not big on regular video games for my kids. So I try to make sure I load up my phone and iPad with lots of educational games. But there really are not many decent geo games on the phone. Fortunately Kids Maps has a phone version for it's U.S. map. Thanks! I hope to see the full series on iPhone soon!

Great version for iPhone

My wife and I love these games for our two little ones. But I just don't always have my iPad with me. So this is handy so I can have them play something other than Angry Birds. The added regions is nice so there is added benefit to playing the phone version. Recommended!
