Geography of the World

Martin Kiss
The most advanced geographic encyclopedia and quiz on the App Store.

Did you know…
…Bhutan is a country in Southeastern Asia?
…Romania has the same flag as Chad?
…the highest peak of Africa is Kilimanjaro in Tanzania?
…India is 7th largest country of the world?
…Buenos Aires is the capital of Argentina?
…Singapore is an island country?

This app is an ideal companion for people who want to learn more about geography. It includes more than 50 thousand facts about more than 250 countries and territories of the world. In addition to browsing the data, you can play 9 types of quiz games about flags, capitals or location of countries (may require additional purchase).

Each country or territory has:
• Official name, flag, ISO codes, and political status.
• Location in the world with a mini map.
• Capital and the largest city and their populations.
• Area, length of coastline, highest peaks and lowest points.
• Neighbouring countries, nearby countries, and administered territories.
• Population, its density, and real-time growth.
• Official languages and currency.
• GDP, its growth, and per capita.
• Labor force and unemployment rate.
• Trade balance, export, and import.
• Time zones and DST transition dates.
• Indexes for social progress, healthcare, and basic human needs.
• Ecosystem protection and amount of CO₂ emissions.
• Access to internet and quality of education.
• Indicators for tolerance and political freedom.
• So much more…

It is possible to sort all countries and territories by many properties, for example by area, highest peaks, population and its growth, CO₂ emissions, GDP and its growth and more (may require additional purchase).

Some parts of the app require additional purchase:
• Access to all statistics and charts. Only area, population and GDP are initially included.
• Playing all 9 types of quizzes. Only one flag quiz is initially included for every continent.

Main sources of the data are the World Factbook 2016 and Social Progress Index 2016.

What's new in version 5.1
This update brings nothing new, except it prepares the app for the upcoming price changes.

In the next few weeks, this app will become free to download, but all new users will need to purchase access to detailed data, like population density and growth, GDP per capita, lowest points, and so on. More specifically, all the little expanded rows and the entire Social section will be locked. This transition should not affect the existing users and you should be able to see all data just like before.

If you encounter any issues, please, send me an email with screenshots. Thanks.
