Seterra Geography Review

Seterra Geography is an app and online platform for students. This map quiz app is easy to use and has a wide range of maps. There are a handful of different quiz categories so students can practice identifying continents and the locations of different countries. Kids can compete with their friends as they match flags to country names and learn the capitals of each state.

Upon opening the application, the user is shown a splash screen entering into a home screen with two choices of maps or flags.

Choosing the ‘Maps’ category moves the user into a second menu including most popular where an attempted score is held. We love the fact that the app is very informative and has a clean simple layout. Choosing a further option leads the user into an array of sub menus for learning and testing. For example, choosing “Europe’, as displayed on the map icon, lists approximately 50 test categories from cities to capitals to rivers. The information available to the user is incredible. When chosen each category offers a ‘Learn’ or ‘Play’ option. We recommend that you explore the ‘Learn’ option first to familiarise yourself with the content. The’ Learn’ option provides clear outlined maps that when pressed will reveal the content. We felt that when the user pressed the country the name should remain on the screen rather than disappearing after a short space of time. Sometimes the content is so overwhelming that keeping track of what you have pressed can be difficult. Once the user has taken on board the information they can press back to the ‘Play’ option.

The ‘Play’ option adds a timer in the top right hand corner along with a percentage for accuracy. If the user fails to locate the answer after three attempts the answer is revealed. We felt that some of the maps were a little unresponsive as they had to be clicked in the centre of the map. Once the answer had been highlighted we would like to see the name remain on the screen. If the user finds the correct answer first time the map turns white, and yellow for a second guess. Once the quiz has finished you can enter your time and percentage accuracy into the leader board creating competition within the classroom. We felt that maybe a score would be better than a percentage accuracy here. The ability to share the score is a great feature and maybe this could be expanded to more social media or platforms such as Drop Box.

The score is maintained within the application but there are no individual profiles to be saved. If the app was to be shared within the classroom there is no way of showing who is scoring well apart from the displaying the leader board. The app has a subtle selection of sound effects.

The ‘Flags’ option offers the user a similar experience with sub menus such as North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and The World. Once again the app allows the user to either ‘Learn’ or ‘Play’. The ‘Play’ option allows the user three attempts at finding the correct flag before the answer is revealed, once again the time and accuracy is logged in the top right of the app.

The main home page also offers options in the top left which include high scores, settings and about. We commend the developers for including 5 different languages within the application including German, Spanish, French, Swedish and English.

Seterra Geography is vast and we were very impressed by the amount of content the application had to offer. However, we did find the application a little frustrating to use and bland. The developers might consider added photographs and further information about the content within the application. An option to ‘save’ a quiz that has been started could be beneficial. As a simple learn and test app for Geographical facts, it is great!
