Ratings and Reviews
Truly the best
No Factbook app can beat this. It’s the best out there, and contains everything I could have asked for. Very informative and useful. Intuitive interface and very easy to use and read. Great map. It’s simple design is not overcrowded with images, maps, or flags; yet uses them when necessary. Keeps out of your way but can be immersive. The paid version for flag descriptions and no ads is worth it, especially if you’re a flag buff. The ads always kept out of your way though, not at all annoying. Very great.
Everything I could have asked for
This is a fantastic app if you are interested in learning about the world. Once you buy the app initially, everything else is free as there’s no in-app purchases. Information on every country and territories’s history, economy, people, government, their flag symbolism and more is featured in an easy to access way.
Opening up the world
Just what I was looking for.
Whenever a country I’m not familiar with is mentioned in the news, I can go to this app. Not only does in have a detailed map but tells me everything I could want to know about the country—ethic makeup, religion, government, languages, even fertility rates.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
