Geography teacher
I'm a middle school geography teacher and I am so excited about this app! Finally, an app that is more than just a game involving memorizing countries and capital city locations! I disagree with another reviewer that said to link it to Wikipedia - please don't!!!I love the fact that it doesn't because Wikipedia tends to give too much information that 10-11 year old kids won't fully read or understand. Some other apps do this and from my experience, it's not kid friendly! I love the short, concise paragraphs that give a snapshot of something related to the culture! Having the option to have it read aloud is perfect for struggling readers! I love this!!! My only wish would be that you could click on the physical features, too, and learn about those, as well. I see many of the mountains, rivers, etc. labeled on the map but you can't click on them. If this were added, this app would be AMAZING!!!

Great app
Very easy to use. Tons of great information. I like the music and how it changes with different regions. Has real pictures of the landmarks and some have a 360 degree view. There are also things in space that you can click on. You can move across the earth or you can toggle the buttons at the top for drop down lists with buttons for regions, countries or the specific landmark. You can also add landmarks to a favorites list.

Awesome app
This is an amazing app, it's such a pleasure to use. For teenagers or even adults, it'll be really nice to have more information about the locations, for example by integrating Wikipedia articles directly into the app. But other than that the interactivity and content is absolutely perfect!

It would be perfect if we could choose the units
Great app, nice music and information but there is no option to change the units. Some countries don't use feet, miles and ºF but meters, kilometers and ºC instead. Since it's an Atlas app, I think it should be taken into consideration.

A beautiful atlas - interesting to kids
I looked at this with my 4 year old son and he wanted to click on everything and learn about what it said. I have the hardback version of this app, which is also beautiful, with lots of flaps to open and is a wonderful resource. I liked the addition of music that went with every region and the links to local time and temperature, so you can talk with your child about what it is like in another country or area of the world right now. My son immediately knew how it worked, but we often ended up at one of the Poles :) Fun & informative, thanks Barefoot!
