Fun with accuracy!
Yes, I have changed from being a US geography dunce to being fascinated with US geography – thanks to this highly effective, interactive learning experience. It is so much fun to see my incorrect answers disappear with the help of straightforward corrections, and then getting faster and faster. There is no fussy design or action to distract me from reaching my goals. I love the simple menu system and the realistic, physical US map. This is one of the most effective educational geography Apps and especially teachers and parents might find it very rewarding. Now I am getting ready for the next step: To join the world leaderboards with MapTastic USA.
Well-designed and nifty
I like the way the app responds with incredible accuracy and feedback. It correctly interprets my clumsy touches of tiny states like VT, NH, MA, RI, CT, DE. It gives great visual and acoustic feedback for correct and wrong hits. Triple time indicators (an hourglass, a striking progress bar, and a counter) push for timely completion of the short game. I didn’t find it too difficult, but neither too easy, to complete all states in time. Now I feel compelled to go ever faster and improve my score.
I just had to keep playing this game until I got all the states right. It feels unusually fast and game-like for an educational app. I like how I can play it for minutes at a time, but keep going back to it to get an even better score. Easily one of the best Education apps on the App Store.
