If drilling on facts until your kids memorizes them works for them, this is one way to get that done, but this app doesn't offer much more. Geo Touch: Learn Geography does a solid job of drilling kids on geography facts. It builds up their knowledge slowly and the repetition ensures kids are absorbing the info over time. This repetition in the way the information is presented, however, starts to feel tedious after the first few rounds, and kids would be more likely to keep playing if there was some diversity in the activities. Geo Touch: Learn Geography uses a computerized voice for audio cues, and that also may be off-putting for kids who are used to more polished apps and games. This does what it sets out to do, but just not in a way that is particularly fun or engaging. Luckily, there are several maps available for free, so parents can try it out and see how kids respond.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
