10/18/2013I was hoping to get the app that provides digital coverage to support magazine. This is maps. That was not clear until after I paid for it.
5/10/2013Missing some info
12/14/2012When on a zoom level comfortable for phone view, it switches to a road map that is practically Nokia Maps. No funky climate, resource, topography, etc maps. No city by city political maps, only country level. Not very up-to-date with current world politics, even country summaries are outdated. A flop as it stands, but since it's Nat Geo, I hope for meaningful updates.
6/18/2012Please fix the country locator so I don't have scroll down to read about Zambia.
4/17/2012Pretty much a waste of time and money. Nothing here you couldn't already get on Bing Maps or Google. This is the first app that I have had problems with on my Nokia Lumia 710. Always get same error message saying problem fixed, when it is not, while searching for country. App is not really developed for WP 7.5 Mango. Sort of a Windows Phone afterthought. Save your money and use Bing/Windows Explorer instead. Mobile websites just as good. This app is way to slow with very limited info.
4/9/2012Great maps and easy to navigate. Would like to be able to download the maps so they could resolve faster.
3/19/2012Broken app. Do not install. Displays error when trying to display map everytime I load it. :(
2/4/2012I don't know why some of these reviews are so negative. This is a great value for the price!
12/21/2011Good app, needs an update to include South Sudan though
