What parents need to know

Parents need to know that PopGeo USA Geography is a quick-matching game that tests kids' knowledge of the U.S. map. There's no lesson aspect to the app that allows you to learn the locations of cities, states, and parks before you play. If you don't already know, you have to guess. Right or wrong, you'll then learn exactly where a certain city or state is located. Once you've got a location in the right place, you can then tap on it to learn loads of facts about it, like its motto, state flower, local flag, population, etc. While there's nothing objectionable in this app, knowing where on a blank map to put certain cities is likely to be over the head of younger children.

Is it any good?

POPGEO USA GEOGRAPHY is a fun little app game, from which a player could actually learn quite a bit about the geopolitical map of the United States. Four names pop up at a time, and a player needs to slide each of them to its correct location on the map. States are generally easiest, with cities being a bit harder, and national parks being quite challenging. Being able to learn trivia about each of the places in the game is a nice bonus.
