  • This game is beast

    by Breyn1

    This game is really fun but I'd rather get the full version but my grandma won't let me use the credit card but I play it in gt at school (gifted talented is what it stands for.)

  • Good

    by :) okkk

    It was a great game but I would love to get more states but it was helpful for my test and for me that's all that I cared about then

  • Need full version

    by Pcvngal

    This lite version gives just the introduction required to make you WANT to purchase the full app. Bought the full version for our daughter's Kindle and she doesn't want to stop playing it. She can put a map together from scratch in the proper places with the correct names associated.

  • Awesome game

    by epm5467

    Super fun I play on it all the time!

  • Great

  • Fun app

    by Chester.McGee

    by Color mania

    Ok so this game is so epic like you can learn your states but the lite version is boaring you don't get to challenge your self

  • Fun app

    by Lepordstar19

    This is a fun app and a great way to learn the states. I would like if you changed one thing, my 5 year old doesn't know how to fully read yet and I think it would be an added bonus if the states spoke instead of using little bubbles.

  • Just a teaser.

    by Anyoneouthere

    I am not an advertiser, but this lite version is the definition of a lite version. The full version is a LOT better! I am also a human being giving you my truthful opinion.

  • Terrific app

    by dinomom1

    Kids love it.

  • good app

    by Aviator 2010

    the questions on states and capitals are great, but it also has many less interesting and less relevant questions

  • I loved it

  • Fun and Challenging!

    by Funjap

    We like it!

  • Clearly wrong!

    by RandomNickname!&@-/11

    Paid for the app and disappointed. This can not be considered an educational App. The questions clearly were not written by someone who is qualified to do so, and the QA for the app is dangerously inadequate to allow the following to slip through. From the paid app: Q: in which state is Vancouver? A: Washington

  • BOO!

    by 06kait

    I hate this app because they make the answers so weird.

  • Look at this

    by Get if you want

    What a great app. I'm amazed how many states I don't know or maybe I should say didn't know.

  • Fun to pass the time

    by Abe.kfm

    Fairly fun game. Only difficult part seems to be picking where a state goes on the map... Tough if you have fat fingers.

  • Great!

  • Stack the States

    by Miss Leona

    Fun game for passing te

  • Drop the States

    by LoveMonte5000

    I'm a mother, a teacher, an adjunct professor, and a video game junkie...this game impresses me in each of those areas. I was skeptical when my kids first told me about it but every time I play, I learn something new even if it's just that Maryland can actually fit between West Virginia & Oklahoma if you drop it juuuussst right!

  • Fun!

    by Michie299

    This game is a lot of fun and you learn interesting facts about states. A side benefit is that you also learn about physics.
