  • Excellent World Atlas

    By s.l.cook
    Been looking for a great atlas app with world maps and a search feature since the disappearance of the National Geographic Atlas. Tried quite a few, and this is by far the best! Great job! I found it really interesting that the App Store is flooded with geography quiz apps. They’re almost a dime a dozen now.
  • Disappointed

    By mmmakii
    Purchased this app for my backpacking trip in Europe, and based on the reviews I had high expectations. Sadly, the app never seems to work right and is constantly loading and will eventually error out saying it can't connect to the server, both on WiFi and cellular data. Don't waste your $0.99, instead just download Wikivoyage offline pages.
  • Broken on 8 plus

    By Kat Kitay
    Can’t scroll down on any of the information pages. Makes this app worthless. Developers won’t fix.
  • Wonderfully Informative

    By AlsoLikesTacos
    This app has quickly moved onto my primary home screen. One of the most informative apps for leaning about the city you live in; but equally as useful for traveling, or just scoping out potential travel destinations. It fully embodies its name as a modern atlas, giving you the ability to save “maps” for different locations, save favorite points of interest, and delve into rich history. Even if you aren’t a traveler and perhaps want an alternative, more direct visual experience for learning about locations - you will find joy in this app! Can’t recommend it enough for citizens of Earth.

    At first wasn’t very impressed as it would lock up and became useless. However after deleting and reinstalling this app it appears to be working really well. Thank to the developer who reached out to provide support.
  • Great App!

    I have used this app to plan two European trips and have found it invaluable.
  • Exponentially beat my expectations

    By Etlb
    I don't remember how I found out about this app, I just downloaded it thinking it might have some useful information on it, but I am seriously impressed by all of the insider advice it has! Idk where it gets its information from but just looking at the guides for places I have lived I feel 100% confident in using the info on this app to navigate new cities and plan trips. Highly highly highly recommend!!!!
  • Lacking

    By PeeCeeJunior
    It's a pretty app and I like the topographical map features, but it feels barren. Kind of like how Apple Maps first looked compared to Google. I put in the small Vermont towns we stayed in recently and you'd think they were ghost towns with almost nothing listed. The only stuff listed are boring places no one would go out of their way to visit. The cool restaurants with incredibly delicious food? Radio silence. So maybe it's better in big cities, but for something that calls itself an atlas this is pretty sad. I regret buying it.
  • Excellent, except for one thing...

    By TracieFromPahrump
    This App is AWESOME and I have had no problems running it (as others have posted). I love the features and it makes planning a trip a lot of fun. I just wish the App shared info between my devices. I spent a few days planning our next trip to Montana, on my iPad, then learned I could not open that trip on my iPhone. That was a bummer, but my fault for not checking first. I'll just have to tote my iPad everywhere. It's not the end of the world, but it would be great if they added this feature, in the future upgrades.
