It didn't grab my kids attention. I will be deleting it soon.

I love this app! It's great! Only once you've seen everything it starts becoming a bit boring. Otherwise, it's great!

Worse than useless
I downloaded this app on my wife's recommendation. I'd expected something rather more sophisticated and educational given how intelligent and literate have been all the Barefoot books we've read. What you get is a rather crude and basic representation of the globe, with some animated figures and background music. At a guess, at least 80% of the identifiable figures are men. It's a man's world, I suppose. The population of Ethiopia is represented by a black man brandishing a spear. You'd never know that Addis Ababa was a bustling city bristling with skyscrapers. New Zealand has a man in a loincloth doing a native dance. You learn about Scotland that it rains a lot. That's it for Scotland — a small country to be sure, but one with many thousands of years of history and amazing contributions to world history. We learn of Iran that the Islamic Revolution liberated women! The entire world is treated in this haphazard and random way. What a bizarre, lopsided view of the world children would get from this app! This is worse than uneducational; it reinforces gender and racial (even racist) stereotypes. I found the whole experience of trying out this to be depressing and distasteful, and under no circumstances would I let my children near it. Any children's atlas in traditional book format would be preferable to this ... thing. It also took forever to download. Goodness knows how much space it must be taking up.
