Geo Walk iOS app updates with new design, Earth facts
By Joel Mathis, Macworld
A geography education app from
Vito Technology has been revamped with a new design and added features to help young users learn and share facts about the planet.
iPad versions of the updated Geo Walk-3D World Fact Book went on sale Friday in the App Store. In both updates, the user interface has been redesigned to let users spin a digital globe, with facts and landmarks popping up throughout the journey.
Other updates include a new “quiz mode” designed to test the user’s geography knowledge, as well as options to share information via Twitter and Facebook. Geo Walk’s database has also been upgraded, giving users a total of 500 items to view throughout the app. (See the video below for a demonstration.)
The iPhone version of Geo Walk is $1, and compatible with any device—first-generation iPhones excepted—running iOS 3.1 or later. The iPad version costs $3, and requires iOS 3.2 or later.
