Barefoot World Atlas is a five-star app if ever there was one! And at this price, it should be.
Younger kids will enjoy flying over oceans and continents, while older kids can really dig in by investigating petroglyphs in Kyrgyzstan, an African elephant in Botswana, and a geyser in Iceland (which the funny British narrator pronounces “geezer” — ha!).
It’s the most magical thing I’ve ever seen on a screen.
Why we like it:
Every. Detail. Is. Perfect. While you’re exploring Cairo, you get a Cairo soundtrack. In Acapulco, you get the Acapulco soundtrack. You can also listen to detailed descriptions and launch photos for most of the interactive features.
At the country level, you can see what time it currently is, how far away it is (you’ll have to turn location services on), the current weather as well as how many cars there are per 1,000 people. It’s fascinating stuff.
If it’s all a little overwhelming, touch the eye icon and you can browse the features alphabetically from Aboriginal man to Zebras.
