Interesting for a few minutes, but mostly, it's disappointing!
I found it odd that no population statistics were available by country, region, or even the world as a whole. Basically, all you learn here is about births and deaths by country, region, and continent. I guess if you want that information, you need another app, like Population Clock HD, or Population Matters, but if they can do it, it should be here as well.
Clicking on many of the small countries is unavailable, as the entire continent lights up instead. Yes, it lists questions, but there are no suggestions of websites in which to find the answers, if that information is even available at all. Who will comfort a mother in Mozambique whose baby died? I have no idea, I just know there's little I can do without an airplane ticket, and even then, what am I to do? Shall I go door to door asking if someone died there? How much help could it be to say, "I'm here from America to cry with you; I feel your pain." Good grief!
This app seems to have been designed with lofty ideals, but they remain the secret of the developers. All in all, this app is interesting to play with for a few minutes, which I've done. Now, I'm deleting it. Perhaps I should mail a check to a missionary.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
