This is a challenging game, so it's not for beginners...but do keep in mind that the National Geographic GeoBee is meant for kids in grades 4-8. Are you smarter than a 4th grader? If you need help studying, you should check out the National Geographic World Atlas HD app, also available on iTunes.
Three types of game play make sure you really know your stuff and never get bored.
In the multiple-choice round, answers come from a library of more than 1300 National Geographic GeoBee questions. In the map challenge round, you zoom, pinch and tap your way to find spots on an interactive map from a catalog of 1000+ locations. For an added challenge, bonus rounds include compelling National Geographic photographs where you have to locate what's in the photo on the interactive map...only we don't tell you where the photo was taken or what is in the picture!
The faster you answer, the more points you get! You have to keep up the pace to move on to the next round.

I’m enjoying this, but there’s a strong bias towards US geography. Would be better if questions were more varied.
Good but screens move too quick
Good app and very interesting with varied questions, but it's hard to actually learn anything!!! Once it shows you the answer the screen moves to the next question do quickly you don't even have a chance to see where you went wrong. That defeats the point right?!
Fix that bit and it would be a good app!
Interesting, but flawed
Some good questions, unfortunately very US centric but biggest problem is the questions sometimes cover the map. You attempt to move the pic out of the way and it takes that as your answer! Couldn't be bothered with that.
