There's a very positive review of Aliens Abducted, an app that challenges players to name countries and identify their flags in an alien exploration theme. I found the footer frustrating.

Aliens Abducted app is available at the app store and is available for your iPhone and iPad. It's $2.99 which is cheaper than the price of an atlas.
Comparing a game app to an atlas is not a fair fight on price or content! I say this having taught World Regional Geography with one required text: Goode's World Atlas.
The Commonwealth of Kentucky's recently signed Esri Educational Site License makes ArcGIS technology available to all K–12 public and private school students in the state. The license will be managed by the Kentucky Geographic Alliance (KGA), a longtime supporter of geography initiatives for elementary and secondary schools.
