What's New in Version 1.2
Bug fix for iPad3
What a well done App! After trying to find out specific information regarding World statistics I found that this App beats my three others hands-down. I have since deleted my other World maps and will use this one exclusively. I just wish that it would show both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperatures. It does in some places but not all. But otherwise this App has it all!
Best atlas for iPad so far
First off, just by the full version. Gives you all the features.( seriously.. It's a few bucks cheapo). Better than the national geographic version that still has those 1910 -style fonts.
App is a good reference for school and map geeks. The comments about app crashing are out dated and there are lots of updates.
I Love This Atlas
I am attempting to learn world geography, and I find this atlas to be invaluable. I especially like the feature where you can unpinch the display and zoom into the countries close up. Also, I appreciate the fact that this atlas is kept updated. Highly recommended for students and aficionados of world geography.
