What's New in Version 2.20141128
-Backward compatibility for iOS 7.x
-Minor bug fixes
I started using this app the night before my honors contemporary world studies final. I have to draw and label 200 items on the map that are not in the United States, and 100 of these are required by the teacher. I learned the African geography in about an hour and the Asian geography in forty five minutes. Then this morning I woke up early and did the purchase for $6 to unlock the rest of the world, learning the political geography of the Americas and a little bit of Oceania in an hour. My complaints with this app are that the maps only include political geography and not rivers and land features, and that Oceania doesn't include the provinces of Australia. It's a little bit pricy for an app, but it's more of a tool and we would all spend a lot more than $6 on an update for a textbook or a computer.
5 star amazing useful app
I usually never write reviews for apps that I get, but I can tell you write now that this app is amazing. I am getting a bad D for my grade in world geography because of all the tests that I have bombed. I think that this app will help me bring my grade up to a good A. I am positive that if I keep using this app to study for every test I am pretty sure I will have a 100% A in world geography in no time. I am so thankful that they made this app for people like me. The only thing I would like them to fix is that you have to buy decks and they cost $5.99 and the app is amazing otherwise. I hope you get the app if you read my review.👍😽😻👼
Seriously amazing brain trainer app
Incredibly well designed app to optimize learning and retention. Pretty much the perfect brain training, flashcard-based study system. Looks like tons of more great content on the marketplace too!
Hint: when trying to memorize country names, try to make you're own silly or weird mnemonics to remember them. For example, Honduras kinda reminds me of a motorcycle, El Salvador is salivated out of Honduras, Belize is like a bell facing east to the ocean...be crazy with it, as long as they make some kind of sense to you, they'll help you remember. You may start remembering after only one try!
