What's in the LITE Version?
The LITE version of Puzzleography is fully functional, but only contains a map of the United States. For these maps, look for the full version of Puzzleography:
★ The World (Continents)
★ North America
★ South America
★ Secret bonus map accessible from a "hidden" button on the menu screen!
★ No in app purchases or upgrades are required to fully enjoy the game. (The full version offers more maps, but the Lite version is a full USA game by itself.)
★ Fun pirate theme
★ No background music helps children focus
★ Seamlessly switch between levels without losing your current puzzle
★ Fireworks when a puzzle is successfully completed
★ Randomized puzzle pieces means you play a new game every time
★ Organic user interface feels more like a real puzzle
★ Learn and practice fine motor skills
★ Touch and drag off a piece to leave it highlighted and its name displayed - perfect for spelling practice!
★ United States
★ Level 0 (Easy Mode): Touch a piece to reveal its location
★ Level 1: Touch the continent, country, or state to hear its name and see it spelled
★ Level 2: Drag each state or country to its proper place
★ Level 3: Drag the name of each state or country to its proper place
★ Children as young as 1 or who have motor skills enough to push a button can play Level 1 of most puzzles.
★ Children as young as 3 or who have motor skills enough to drag a piece can play Level 0 or Level 2 of most puzzles.
★ Older children and adults will find Level 3 particularly challenging.
★ Some maps (Oceania, for example) require finer motor skills than other maps (United States, for example).
★ Each country is spelled and pronounced in English.
★ If you ever find that you "lose track" of a small country, switch to the Names level to locate it quickly
★ If you find a bug, please let us know! Though our app has been rigorously tested, sometimes things slip through. A contact form is on our website.

What's New in Version 1.3
Map display fix
Perfect for homeschooling!
We absolutely love this app! So much so that we bought the paid version too. I'm very impressed with the detail and the kids and I are all learning a ton. Definitely highly recommend it!
Wonderful app, I like it very much
. It lets me memorize all states so effectively. The only shortcoming is without the abbreviation for each state name. However, I still give 5 stars.
This would be a great app and very effective for teaching geography but it consistently freezes and then crashes so we've yet to complete a full game - very frustrating!!!
