Please fix...I loved it when it worked
Yes. This WAS a wonderful app until the 3.0 upgrade. Now none of the factbook flags or anthems work at all!
Will this be fixed? If not I'd like my money back as well!! This app no longer performs as advertised!
PLEASE FIX! Thx
Just want to say the facebook app has and update to support 3.0...what's taking worldwiki so long??
7/6 - fix it or give money back
7/21 - still no fix and no refund. What a bummer this turned out to be.
8/21 - THANKS FOR THE UPDATE! BACK TO !!!
Guess we can thank apple for the long wait on the update.
I think this app is wonderful. It supplies a lot of information. But I think some data is still missing, and an update is badly needed. I think that if a few links were provided for more information about each country, e.g. to Wikipedia and Britannica, or government websites, that would also be helpful. The speaker is Boehner, and Gaddafi is dead.
The update of the factbook as well as new OS 3.0 features make this app an amazing and useful buy for $.99. Stored locally, you can access the info at anytime without needing an Internet connection
