☆☆ ON SALE TODAY!! ☆☆ The next time you hear about a country on the world news or a travel show and want to know more about it, grab your iPad and open The World HD!
The World HD is unique in the app store because it includes both a great set of maps AND the largest world factbook. These enable it to answer questions which Atlases and factbooks cannot: Atlases show you where countries are located, but have very little information about them; factbooks tell you about each country, but their maps leave you guessing about where places are located.
════════ HOW IT WORKS ════════
The interface is animated and interactive. Touch a country on the world map and the Retina vector country map opens while the factbook slides onto the screen, each topic neatly organized as tiles along the edge of the map. Touch a factbook tile and it zooms out to reveal detailed information about that topic. Not sure where a country is located? Select it on the drop-down list and The World HD zooms in on it then opens the map and factbook.
The zoomable world map is not just the fastest way to select a country it also enables you to visualize and understand entire regions. It is so intuitive and easy to explore that once you get started it's hard to stop!
