Solid game for geography lovers the only drawback is you need to know the French name for cities.
I've enjoyed playing this game on and off for quite sometime now. But, one thing bothers me: the developers expect you to know the French name for cities instead of the English spelling. Since the game is being offered in the US app store I've asked them via email to fix that. I've gotten no respsone from them. It's true that the French names are similar; but, when I am playing it always throws me off when they want me to locate La Havana, Venise and Varsovie. I know that they mean Havana, Venice and Warsaw; but, I don't think that everyone knows.
Good app but has more potential
It is an ok app. I have problems with placing of the capitals and some countries don't recognize when you click them. It placed Copenhagen in southern Sweden! I haven't even tried anything but it needs some serious fixes. If they fix tose thing, I think it could be an excallent app.
No Good Until Glitches are Fixed
Been of fan of this app since the first one came out. I stuck with it this whole time, I love it! However, the mac version is far from being smooth and glitch free like the iphone and ipad version. This issue needs to be adressed. It runs a lot slower and constantly misreads the cities/countries it's being clicked on. Once the app is patched up and on par with the iphone and ipad version--this app will be unmatched. Heres to it being fixed in advanced--but until then. I feel ripped off.
The concept overshadows the content.
I think this would be a suitable app for the iPhone and iPad, but was not created with the Mac in mind. I am a geography major, and have been looking for a decent geography tutor for the Mac for several years. The app is okay, but for Mac it lacks any real depth... meaning I'd rather have a more content-driven app then see it full of flashy text and graphics.For the iPhone however, it's probably good for light studying during a lunch break, or for a quickie refresher.
If you don't fix this immediately, I want my money back!
