Barefoot World Atlas is a magical, interactive 3D globe that invites children to explore the regions and countries of the world, discovering hundreds of fascinating features and immersing themselves in the rich wonders of our planet. Geographer and BBC TV presenter Nick Crane is your guide as, with the swipe of a finger, you fly around a beautiful world created by artist David Dean. Barefoot World Atlas was selected by Apple in 2013 as one of the 10 best apps ever made, and has been downloaded over four million times.
Barefoot World Atlas has somehow captured the awe and scale of a world atlas book and exponentially improved upon it, using the iPhone and iPad as shoulders on which to stand.
The whole app is wonderful and though it’s obviously aimed at children, it will prove to be just as diverting for parents.
Barefoot World Atlas is one of the best exploration apps there is, with so much to explore in such an intuitive way.
In addition to the hundreds of features and locations currently in the app, the latest update to Barefoot World Atlas introduces a collection of wonderful expansion packs to entertain your children and widen their horizons.
Glide over the hundreds of stunning, hand-painted drawings and animations that cover the globe, and listen to how the music changes as you travel from region to region.
Young children will delight in playing with the 3D globe and exploring its features, while older children can delve deeper to discover a wealth of facts and insights including live data for every country from Wolfram|Alpha®.
Barefoot World Atlas includes a variety of playful puzzles that allow children to test their knowledge of all the facts, figures and features in the app, in a variety of imaginative ways.
It is so beautiful and gorgeous. I am on it all the time.
Really beautiful graphics and lovely soundtrack accompany an interactive and educational view of the globe. Far superior to an actual globe, I might add!
a stunning achievement – one the designers, illustrators and educationalists should be truly proud of. 10 out of 10. Highly recommended.
You can see how much dedication was put into creating this app. It's beautifully designed, it contains a lot of interesting facts and great interface! My children love it
