It might strictly speaking fall under the category of ‘game’ rather than ‘app’ (developer Rovio made Angry Birds) but Ovi Maps Challenge is as much a light-hearted educational tool as anything. Dare we use that dreaded term “edutainment”? Too late – we just did.
The app’s presented as a simple, colourful quiz with numerous multiple choice question-based rounds incorporating capital cities, relative populations, the geographical locations of landmarks and the like. All in all, it’s an excellent way to pass the time and brush up on your geography in the process.
There’s even an upgrade pack available for purchase containing even more questions.
