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.

Worth the wait!
This app took a while to download on the iPad 1, but was worth the wait. Sound, picture quality, etc. works fine on my iPad, no issues at all. I've shown the app to men, women, and children of all ages and everyone is blown away by it. We've spent hours using it so far and there is still so much to explore. I'm really looking forward to seeing what features and upgrades come next as I think there are just endless possibilities. Overall I highly recommend this App and this is coming from someone who rarely uses Apps!

Disappointed
Was really looking forward to checking this out with my kids after all the fabulous reviews, so I spent $7 and opened it up as soon as it downloaded. Wow, was I disappointed! The app is OK, but the 3D and touch features are definitely NOT worth the price. I expect more features and interactivity at this price. How do I get my money back?
