  • Get introduced to the world by spinning and zooming into the virtual globe

    The app also provides facts on countries and captital cities in the world, such as population, weather, currency, etc.
    Teachers teaching geography or related subjects could make use of it to teach information of different places.
    The app would also be fun for students curious about the world and would love to learn more of it. However, for less self-motivated ones, they may not find this as attractive.
    The lastest update removed the street level view, portrait view and more useful features which caused a lot of complaint.

  • Tips for using the product

    Users could add pins on the atlas and have their own customized collection of pins.
