1.56 GB!
I'm looking forward to trying the app with my son, but it's taking a while to download on my 1.5Mb connection. I'm also wondering how long I can keep it on my iPad as it alone takes up a tenth of the space. I heard about he issues of graphics optimized for the retina display and this verifies the problem: apps are going to eat up space and bandwidth. At least I'm not downloading it on 3G where it would deplete my monthly allotment and take the rest of the month to download!

Not happy
Just wasted my money. I read the reviews and thought it would be good. You should be able to preview it. I wish I could return it! :(

Interesting and thorough content, but...
There is a lot of overlap in the audio in this app. At one point I was hearing three different distinct sounds happening at once; the music for the region on the globe, the audio for the item (car building somewhere in Asia), and the audio of the text describing or explaining the item. Much too much noise all at once - hard for me, as an adult to process, and certainly close to impossible for my child to process. This was happening throughout the app, not just this one incident. Very disappointing for an app I paid a good bit of money for. I have dozens of free informative, educational kid's apps that work wonderfully.

Needs More Options!!
Why is Puerto Rico not an option to click on? I was reviewing this app with my 6yr. old daughter and she was really interested on learning about her Puerto Rican heritage, but when we searched for Puerto Rico, we weren't able to click and get information on it. It really made her upset. For the price, in my opinion every country should be clickable.

beautiful and educational
I would easily have been absorbed with this app for hours when I was a kid (or now for that matter!). Not overly structured… it’s something you can just get lost in like surfing Wikipedia, with one topic of interest leading seamlessly into the next. The landmarks and cultural details aren’t just the usual suspects either—I discovered Butter Week for the first time (where have you been all my life??) within the first 5 minutes of spinning around. Beautiful, inspired, educational, and most importantly, fun!

Nice graphics!
It does what's it's supposed to do.
