    Potential, but needs work

    I have been waiting for a set of good geography game type apps, so I was pleased to see this one and others by the same company.

    It has a lot of potential but definitely needs some work and some tweaking before I would purchase the rest in the series. If the developers are reading, please consider:

    1. Correct/incorrect message flashes too quickly
    2. No opportunity to guess more than once if you're incorrect, i.e. paring it down to the right answer by process of elimination
    2. Correct answer is not given if you miss, so any learning potential is lost. This is the biggest drawback and fault in the app, IMO. If a correct answer isn't given immediately then you can just aimlessly play through over & over without feeling like you're improving or learning anything.
    4. No summary of the results at the end of the game.

    I DO very much like the fact that you can choose your combination of things shown & guessed for a lot of variety. You can choose to be shown maps, flags or country names, then choose to guess capitals, language or country names.

    If the app(s) can be updated to immediately give the correct answer or let us keep guessing until we get the correct one (lowering the score each guess of course) then it would be a winner of an app and I would absolutely consider purchasing the others by the same dev. If this is not changed then I don't really see any replay value, and it will undoubtedly sit in my app drawer unused.

    Hope this is helpful to someone.
