Version History

Launched Feb 02, 2012 (over 7 years ago).

Releasing new versions every about 1 month, on average.

Dec 12
2018
(Current)
Version 5.3.11

Fine tuned the new learning algorithm and fixed a bug that lead to crashes on older devices.

Dec 04
2018
Version 5.3.10

The learning mode got a slight overhaul and I removed the time restrictions to achieve 100%. You can still get a reminder for the best time to repeat according to the built-in Spaced Repetition algorithm. I also remove the Vatican as a country, as it was just impossible to hit. I also fixed a new bug leading to a crash in repetition mode.

2018
Version 5.3.9

The learning mode got a slight overhaul and I removed the time restrictions to achieve 100%. You can still get a reminder for the best time to repeat according to the built-in Spaced Repetition algorithm. I also remove the Vatican as a country, as it was just impossible to hit.

2018
Version 5.3.8

I messed up the last update for my users on older devices. This should fix it. Sorry!

Sep 19
2018
Version 5.3.7

This update gets my app ready for the next iOS version. Also some location corrections (Farewell Air Berlin). And a new shuffle mode for Multiplayer to mix up the player order. Enjoy learning with my App!

Jun 18
2018
Version 5.3.6

This update fixes some bugs that lead to crashes for some users. Enjoy learning with my App!

May 29
2018
Version 5.3.5

Performance, performance, performance! I looked under the hood and did some heavy lifting. For older devices I simplified the map display. Especially the complex ocean layers need a lot of power. If you have a newer device, you can also disable it unter "Advanced Map Settings". In addition to that I implemented a lot of small adjustments.

Let me know if you still have performance problems.

May 28
2018
Version 5.3.4

Detailled results display after each round. You can see exactly what you knew and where there is room for improvement.

I had some requests asking about the 88% limit in the new learnmode. First of all: Kudos for your perseverance! The learnmode is based on a scientific algorithm, that also takes into account the time between repetitions to make sure that the learned locations are in your long term memory. I implemented an alert, as soon as no progress is possible anymore. Just activate notifications and you will get a reminder when you can learn again.

I also fixed a bug, that lead to app crashes in the "Select Category" screen.

Version 5.3.2

The learn mode got a major overhaul in cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Weserbergland. The learning schedule will be determined by an advanced scientific algorithm for optimal long term results.

I also added a way to unlock the full version for free for a limited time by answering a survey. Try to start a locked category to see if one is available.

And a lot of user interface improvements.

This minor bugfix release also includes some adjustments to comply with new privacy laws.

Version 5.0

This is a HUGE update! I finally integrated VECTOR maps. That brings a lot of advantages
› Crisp images at every zoom level
› Smaller filesize
› Faster interface
› More styling flexibility (You will notice the differences in the different game modes)

Unfortunately it also has a downside. I had to ditch the Classic Mode, as I would have to completely rewrite it. And as an Indie developer I don't have the resources for that. So if you are still using the Classic Mode, don't load this update. If you already did, you can find a step by step guide to download the old version here: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2015/12/25/how-to-download-older-versions-of-ios-apps/

In this Update I also addressed some small issues, including:
› I totally forgot the German translation for some new strings
› The swiss state St. Gallen was shown wrong
› The score system is now all distance based. So old right/wrong scores will be lost. Sorry about that, but it was just too confusing. For States/Countries in options mode, I use an arbritrary point in the middle of the country as base. Otherwise the actual point where you tapped the map counts.
› Improved interface
