    Geo Touch takes a kinesthetic approach to app learning, players place countries into a map like pieces in a puzzle. Geo Touch is good for learning the countries of the world, but doesn’t have every single country in the world. The quizzes reinforce the new and old info as they are cumulative. The way it teaches is well done too. It gives you four countries per round, next round four more, and so on. If you make a mistake you are “penalized” by removing the correct countries off the map and you have to earn your way back. It gives you the repetition you need to retain the information.
