Speed Geography App
Do you know the countries of the world? How fast can you point to India, Venezuela or Papa New Guina ? Speed Geography is an addictive game that tests your speed and challenges your memory.
-Beautiful map with multi zoom levels.
-Hundreds of labeled countries from all the regions of the world.
-Points for precision and speed.
-Bonus points for five consecutive correct answers in a row or longer combos.
-Scores can be compared with friends' through OpenFeint.
-A magnifier appears when holding a finger on an image allowing more precision.
-Includes multiple translations (currently English and French).
-Additional information on countries from Wikipedia is available without leaving the game.
-A friendly developer open to suggestions. Don't hesitate to send me an e-mail if something is missing or not quite right. :-)
If you are tackling geography in high school or university, this is a must have game that makes learning fun. The game includes a practice mode that allows going over specific regions without doing all the previous levels and a review mode that replays the mistakes made in the previous game.
Additional level packs will be made available to purchase in game (Currently Capitals of the world).

Speed Geography app reviews
EXCELLENT App!!!!! 5/5
By Marty's Genius
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT app!!!!! I have hundreds of geographical apps, and this might be the best of all!!!!! I love the details (showing the capital and country names, the precise location, practice mode, etc). The app is challenging, educational and perfect!!! Runs so smoothly, so slick!!!! I will buy anything educational you develop!!!!
Missing Kosovo 4/5
By KitKat 71
I really enjoy this app. I've mastered the countries in a few evenings. I just wish it was updated to include Kosovo and some of the other island nations.
Great game... 5/5
I've now played it so much I've started associating the colors to the countries. In the next installment, if the colors changed randomly I think it would add to the difficulty. What about being able to change the speed of the timer? oh that would be cool.

NEED: a review quiz of all countries missed
Beautiful music but we should have the option for the kids to turn off just the music
**after review, there's no screen to show results-
Very difficult to keep track of where improvements should be made.. Maybe itemized list..
If I'm looking over the shoulder the correct/incorrect window is always the same color,
So I never can tell how well she's doing until the end.
Otherwise so nice.
Our whole family loves this! We are all competing for highest score. I used to be hopeless at geography, but after one week with this app, I can identify all 197 countries consistently. It's addictive! The music is great and the speed factor makes the scoring more interesting and exciting.
GEOGRAPHY MANIA!! 5/5
I love this app!! I have learned so much in a very short time while having fun. The only improvement that I would like to see is a more definite highlight of a country or capital when I was unable to locate it. Sometimes it takes me too long to locate the correct location to memorize for the next go around, because I cannot see the highlight readily.
Fun and Challenging; Need Continent Focus Option 3/5
I thought I knew my geog., but under pressure not so much. Good reinforcement tool.
Need to be able to concentrate on one continent or region at a time.
