QUALITY
 

TAPQUIZ MAPS is a straightforward app that will help kids learn the locations of countries around the world. Countries that have already been correctly identified do not gray out, however, so kids also need to remember which ones have already been matched up. For some areas of the world, this makes the game quite challenging. The border outlines of each country are a bit rough, but the countries are still clearly identifiable.
