  • Data Checking Needed

    Sorry folks, I know it’s a freebie pack, but when I find glaring mistakes in the first couple seconds of trialing an app, I’m definitely not going to pay money for it. For an educational tool, it pays to be accurate for our kids... So, since I’m not from Texas, I tried to first zoom to home via the regions sub-set (North America) and meander north to Minnesota. No landmarks to speak of (Grain elevator!? Ok, fine, Cargil and General Mills are our handy work...), but the state abbreviation is wrong (Minnesota is MN, not MI) so when I’m swiped over to Michigan, whose abbreviation is MI, they don’t even get abbreviations. I’m not the most worldly guy around, but before knowing where Salvador or Eritrea are, how about I have the ability to at least point to my home state with a little detail first? It should be an easy win... I hope the depth of the rest of the app is better, I’d hope so for such a huge install, but for now, I’m going to pass.

  • great for my 8 yr old

    By GeologistMom
    my 8 yr old son is dyslexic, and this atlas is fabulous for him because it is narrated! we use it together to learn about different regions, and since it is narrated, he also enjoys exploring it on his own. its a valuable addition to our homeschooling. please consider adding narration to the add-on packs!!
  • Iran has lots of more great places but you didn’t add

    By iAi95
    It’s ridiculous that you add only one mosque and two mountains of Iran. Iran has lots and lots of cool places that you did NOT add. Places like Persepolis, sarv-e abarkuh tree, Milad Tower and many tombs of our myth like tomb of hafez and ferdoosi. Education has nothing to do with US laws for sanctions. Show the world the beauty of our IRAN.
  • Wow

    By 😀Mo;)
    I’m a 10 year old girl who has always been interested in facts. This app is great and I love the animation. I have gotten all the packs and I’ve never regretted it. This app is like a textbook that kids will get excited about. Pls just get the app!
  • I want to love this app

    By dardnam
    I just , right now purchased this app ( 7-16-2017 central standard time it's about 10 am) I want a refund. Seriously, how do I get one. It is a beautiful app. I'm very disappointed in its content. FYI, Mexico is part of North America. When I tapped on Illinois, there was a cherry on it that apparently should be in Michigan. I'd like to see the capital of the state, maybe include Chicago on the map. I believe soy and corn is what's mainly grown in the state as far as farming is concerned. I want to give my child solid accurate information. This is important, as a parent I feel I need to augment my child's education as it is. So, how do I get my $4.99 back
  • Amazing Fun App!

    By Fluffy Totoro
    I love this app! It's filled with beautiful with a hand drawn charm to all the animated art in it. It has a lot of fun facts and quirkiness to it that kids would love. I don't understand why people are complaining here but I had no issues loading this on my iPhone 6S or iPad Air. People ranting about space, really? Get a life. The high resolution animated art and other aspects of the design require it. I think people complain too much and don't appreciate things. I've used this app for a couple years and it never gets old just for fun and can't wait to introduce my daughter to it :)
  • Useless

    By jazzybeat
    Go and get your self a wikipedia app at least you will learn something there.
  • Very poor presentation

    By PhotoGenetic3
    I purchased this app for my 5-year old daughter. It was based on the sales pitch it has in the summary. 4 million downloads and and top 10 App Store pick! Now my impression after spending 20 minutes with this is - really? I want to jump straight to what's wrong here but first let me point out what's working. The globe is the best idea of this app. Very smooth transition for what could have been complicated multi-level menus. This is ideal for exploration. Sadly, the good part ends right there. The music is so boring and so is the announcer's voice. Switching between packs should not be required, but it would be ok if the navigation between the packs was half as intuitive as moving around the globe. However, it appears that the app was not built with expansion packs in mind, perhaps implemented as an afterthought. The app freezes while switching packs without any feedback on whether the selection was successful. I would not recommend this app for children until it's more engaging. It has the potential to be a very useful tool for young children, but it's not there yet.
