Is It Any Good?

Four maps help kids see the globe through different lenses, and the rotating globe makes looking up cities and countries slightly more entertaining than a traditional atlas. The app's pinning feature -- though not very robust -- is probably its best offering. With it, kids can make their own connections to places on the globe by creating custom, color-coded pin lists. Overall, though, the app lacks in-depth information about cities and geographic regions, which means kids may quickly decide to search elsewhere (better choices even include some of the other Nat Geo products referenced within the app).

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.
