[prMac.com] Alexandria, Virginia - From the Universe to the Earth, Vito Technology, awarded developer of Star Walk and Solar Walk, has landed to announce the release of a completely renovated app - GeoWalk - 3D World Factbook - made to explore how unusual the world is. This update brings an entirely new adventurous atmosphere, more content and interactivity.
With this update the app presents a globe in a cozy setting of adventurer's desk. The users can spin the globe and pictures of the most interesting creatures, plants, landmarks and personalities will appear once they hover over a specific region. Categories can also be filtered out and browsed through in a flashcard-like mode. Once you tap a picture you get a short blurb or information about the selected object.
Another improvement is a highly requested feature of quizzes aimed at memorizing facts in a game-like manner. Developers say they were surprized that after a half hour of playing they have memorized enough for a quick spin on a TV game show.
Geo Walk is an app that brings the family together to explore facts about the fascinating world around us. It suits both adults and children curious about far away places, great people, and the most amazing living creatures and plants. Geo Walk can become a convenient companion for inveterate travelers who are always on the go, it is a perfect time-killer on the long trips.
