Fun and Educational
Our homeschooling 7 year old has had the lite version for about two years now and still loves playing it. He's learned so much more about US geography since using it though did have a natural curiosity prior to starting. Since he started at 5 years old my only suggestion would be to make an added audio feature so that kids who've yet to learn to read fully can play and enjoy but since we do things together by choice it was a non issue for us so I'm still giving it five stars. It's oddly addictive and fun even for people like me who've no interest in geography. Great game to learn, laugh, and play together as a family.
State shapes are fun to use!
My son loves this app! He likes the way states are shaped and when they can move around he just beams. He enjoys the way they are to scale, unlike some state-shaped games or puzzles. He only played the Lite version, so far. This helps while we're waiting in restaurants when the servers don't have crayons or games to play (& I don't have to ruin my bag carrying around pens and other messy media). Can't wait to see what he thinks about the purchased, full version - he'll giggle I'm sure. Thanks for this app!
The whole family loves it!
Our whole family loves this app! It is definitely worth paying for the full version! The only thing I would suggest they add would be an audio option for pre-readers. My preschool age children would be able to actually learn the states if the app read the questions out loud to them. I would just want it as an option, though, not for every player, because the reading is good practice for my readers. That option would definitely make this a 5 Star app!
