Windows 8.1 App Watch: Geomaster Plus

First things first. This app is currently free for a limited time, so if you want to download it, do so now. Already available for other platforms, this neat little educational app has recently landed on the Windows Store.

And it retails for a handful of coins on the iOS App Store and Google Play, so expect it to cost a few bucks when it goes back to its regular price. And all of it well deserved, as you will find out below.

But first here is a look at the official description:

“Play, learn and become a Master of Geography. The ultimate Geography quiz helps to improve your knowledge in Geography. Available languages: English, French, German & Spanish.”

At its core, Geomaster Plus is a geographic quiz that helps young ones (and grownups, too) learn about the world, including things like World capitals, World flags, European cities, US states and cities, and more. A few of these (Seas and Mountains, famous Monuments) are promised in future updates.

The user interface is easy to grasp, the artwork tidy, though it is low on options — the zooming text can become a little too much to bear, and the ability to customize things like this would have been welcome.

It is intelligently designed, however. There is a timer, and both the wrong and correct choices are highlighted in case the player gives an incorrect answer. It is a bit of a hefty download at 94.1MB, but the app supports multiple languages and multiple processors, including ARM based ones.
