TapQuiz Maps teaches geography in a very straight forward and easy way: trial and error.
The application quizzes geographical knowledge on several sections of the globe. The object of the game is to guess the location of the state or country called for, against a timer.
Now before you think that's too simple, I will tell you that when I tried this app out I was able to ace a totally foreign section of the globe in just three tries. Each attempt took about thirty seconds. That's a whole area of the world I now have geographical knowledge of, whereas before I knew nothing - all being done in just under a minute and a half of playing.
So it may be simple, and it may be straight forward and it may not be the prettiest app available, but it certainly is effective and FAST.
