  1. guest-avatar

    Great idea but inherently biased towards western countries and extremely outdated. Last update was in 2015 so it doesn't have any current information on world leadership, election results, rising political parties, healthcare laws, human rights issues, security, the refugee crisis, and countries' statuses after the MANY natural disasters over the last two years. Could be a great app if the developers would just update it.

  2. guest-avatar

    According to this app..all usa citizens r not safe in almost entire world( except in china and European countries which have same GDP ) rest of them which dont have same GDP..THey are hell for usa citizens.. Everybody admits crime is every where... Then y dont u show usa crime data on this app.. Dont spread hates.. Spread love plz...

  3. guest-avatar

    The broad amount of data, well researched, current, correct and detailed - is matched by no other app I know of. When you consider why it was made, makes its accuracy unsurprising. Shame we cannot access the data the CIA consider confidential. Otherwise it's superb.

  4. guest-avatar

    This app is nice but I hope you to change information about Korea and Japan. Sea of Japan is wrong name of Eastsea (Sea of Korea). Most of world maps were using that name until 19cen but, during russo japanese war they took the sea illegally. However, after Korean War U.S.A and UN declared that every regions plundered by Japan must return to Korea. So after WW2 Eastsea(Sea of Korea) is home of Korean again. I strongly recommend you to change information Sea of Japan to Eastsea (Sea of Korea).

  5. guest-avatar

    No jokes...this is probably one of the best apps in the world. The detailing is absolutely amazing! I have no idea what to do with all this information I swear. It has everything you could ever want or need to know...all in one app!

  6. guest-avatar

    Having all this information at your finger tips is not only amazing, but a bit dangerous. Should it embolden you to do some trivia. 😉

    Best app to learn about world facts. Very nice user interface. Only 2 things I can say 1) The map should be colourful like different colours for different countries and country labels should be there. 2) The whole app is in dark theme it will look better if it has a light theme. By the way very good app. Thanks ☺

  8. guest-avatar

    The info available in this extra-ordinary app is both deep and wide. I find myself using it quite a bit while reading. This is a highly recommended addition to anyone's reference library.

  9. guest-avatar

    Would be better if I could change the initial display order permanently rather than having to do it each time I open the app. I don't want it by gdp... ever...

  10. guest-avatar

    India's map is incorrectly presented showing part of Kashmir to Pakistan which is actually PoK(Pak occupied Kashmir) and GoI has already passed regulations to not to do so. Do correct it. Its Malafide. Rest app is useful.

  11. guest-avatar

    Too little info about countries other than the us. Even so, the info/survey-data isn't regularly updated. Was very promising informative app.. could have been very useful.😟

  12. guest-avatar

    I haven't actually used it. I ll use it and give my opinion later. Hope this is like actual CIA WORLD FACTBOOK website

    Great but 1.) can you ad a physical map and 2.) add a wiki link at top so you can learn even more about that country and 3.) Can you add historic countries like Nazi Germany and The U.S.S.R. P.S. Best country learning app ever

    Some of the information are outdated already. Like that of the Economy and Government. It's been last year since the last update. Hope that you will give a up to date information. Love your app though.

  15. guest-avatar

    Indeed it is from CIA World factbook, but, there are extra facts after the "quick fact" button. This app mostly contain some of bad side of other countries, US citizen must be very careful to go to another country, I must scroll the alliance button endless because the ribbon it is just too long for me.

  16. guest-avatar

    I have been a fan of the actual book since I was a kid. But to be able to have it at your finger tips is almost as cool (because you can never out do an actual good book). If there is anything you could want to know geographically or geopolitically about our awesome planet, this is the app for you.

  17. guest-avatar

    Great handy fact book however wud be great if latest data could be updated at least monthly or even quarterly... Some data seems quite outdated... But for all purposes of getting an idea about the information, this is a great app...

  18. guest-avatar

    This apps doesn't formally recognize Palestine. A sign that they might be other facts/info omitted due to political bias.

  19. guest-avatar

    I do not know where the autho r of this program, basing these data by this program? although the history of the Balkans is a bit complicated for others, data could have been much better based. look on wikipedia . org uninstalling 😡

  20. guest-avatar

    I'm a A level geography student and this is really useful and interesting. Could you add places such as Crimea, Chechnia, Abhazka etc... Also could you add more about the history of all the countries because A)interesting and B) very useful. Also could you add flag information such as how they came about to use it etc... and be able to zoom in closer on maps

    App is very nice and useful.useable. but one thing, I didn't see is that, when was the data taken and source of data. That's crucial because some data are rapidly changing.

  22. guest-avatar

    It needs to be updated imminent. Gilgit, Siachen , etc parts of Kashmir have been shown as non-Indian parts. It's not fair. Better if the map is shown in colourful physical and political type.

  23. guest-avatar

    Too bad this hasn't been updated. It used to be useful but not anymore.

  24. guest-avatar

    I love this app! I open it at least once a day. I love how it's designed. I love all of the facts that are on it. I've learned a great deal from this app. I cannot wait to see the information regarding what happened in 2015. When can we expect such an update? Great job!

  25. guest-avatar

    The very first country I looked up, French Guiana, is not even listed.

  26. guest-avatar

    This apps gave me many general knowledge about the world even ranking in GDP and death rate, etc. Worth to try it. I love it.

    Total waste of data just one world map nothing else please do not install atleast upsc aspirants very boaring app

  28. guest-avatar

    Very useful and informative especially if traveling. I would like more emphasis on the countries' backgrounds though. Either way, it's worth having it.

  29. guest-avatar

    I love the app but it always crashes when I return to it later. I've submitted a bunch of crash reports but it hasn't been fixed yet :-(

    Am not good in rating app but I give this app 5 for its simplicity and a very wide coverage of countries infos... More grease to your elbow Mr developer as you keep the good work on.... ..

  32. guest-avatar

    Can't move to SD card takes much space of my phone.I prefer to use wikipedia for this.

  33. guest-avatar

    In North top side, you removed the jammu and Kashmir part. But reality and present is that Kashmir as Whole part is in Indian territory. So update India map as the Jammu and Kashmir is the part of it.

    Very useable with a beautiful interface. I will recommend most high end Android devices should come pre-installed with this app. Great work!

  37. guest-avatar

    This app is really great.However map mode is all white in my phone and changing color doesnt help with it.Could you please fix it In the next updates ? Update:Hi.Thanks you read my comment.I've checked it but It Does not work yet.However I think it's because of older android version(4.0).Thanks again for making the best Factbook app!

    With help of this app you can get all information about every country of the world which information you want to know.

  39. guest-avatar

    Very handy, anything about all countries in the world you want to know you can find in this app. Complete and people must needed app in app store.

  40. guest-avatar

    I'm a little confused about the map though, the picture shows some countries being highlighted. You also said that the map is now interactive and that you can view alliances on it.

  41. guest-avatar

    This is by far the best World Factbook/ Geography app that I have come across. A neatly made app, smooth to use. I hope the informations given are 100% reliable and are frequently updated. As of now it's ad free as well. One of the best educational app of its kind. Keep up Good work.

  42. guest-avatar

    I love it as a geographer I find itvamazing. 99%accurate just1 mistake. the people's Republic of China is the third largest country not 4th

    e.g. Mount Everest is shown to situated in China instead of Nepal, if Chinese read this they aggressively conquer Nepal to claim the same, readers are requested to highlight any such wrong information about their country

  44. guest-avatar

    Gr8 app. Loved the way it's classified and easy of use. Have it installed on my phone. Would highly recommend it to students and schools to use regularly. Downside. Would recommed regular updates esp for current affairs.Last update for Canada seemed regarding refugees is 2014. Whereas Canada took in Syrian refugees in Dec 2015.

  45. guest-avatar

    I am using this app for last one year and still most of the information are outdated . Now we are in 2017 and most of the information its shows are from 2014. Please try to sync with current updated

  46. guest-avatar

    It's fun but not much use as a factual reference guide as it is about 3 years out of date, so it's becoming increasingly irrelevant and useless by the day.

  47. guest-avatar

    Pretty good. Sure beats carrying around a thick heavy factbook..✌

    Very concise and informative. Good side-by-side comparison function. Some more arcane econometric indexes could use a brief glossary.

  49. guest-avatar

    Maybe I haven't spent the time needed to navigate this updated version, but it's harder to find countries. Why did you do away with the "Browse by Country" option, for example.

    Can't enlarge maps, so can't read them on phone's screens. Still shows Obama as president, six months after Trump' s inauguration, so who knows what else is out of date.

  51. guest-avatar

    There is no mention of Safety & Security under 'US of the A'. But other countries are shown in bad light, like caution for sex crimes and other crimes. They're no saints here...

  52. guest-avatar

    This app is AMAZING! I learn a lot from it. I randomly pick a country every day and read everything about it. I just love it.Great job👍

  53. guest-avatar

    The information is detailed and informative. It covers many aspects we don't usually think about when visiting other nations. It's insightful and most importantly, it increases our awareness, which I believe is our best asset.

  54. guest-avatar

    Please allow us to change theme to white color... Not all are comfortable with black theme 24/7 ... Allay from that, What an App ! Just wow... But please change the theme to light.

  67. guest-avatar

    Great !! I cant search as this as good world atlas its only good fackbook app that i know =) but it need change information for new year

  68. guest-avatar

    This app is great but the only problem is that it's not updated. (Ex. Stephen Harper is not the prime Minister of Canada anymore and so is Barack Obama.

  69. guest-avatar

    I saw this app first time in my friends 📱. It includes all small data that u never thought in that is it possible to collect. Awesome. It will increase your knowledge about fact of all countries.

    The data is not consistent (e.g. unemployment rate) with what I found on the web.

    Needs more frequent updates. The 2016 edition of the Factbook is available online

  75. guest-avatar

    I enjoy the ability to quickly look up information in a meeting or discussion. This app makes me look 10 times smarter as I give people decision making advice

  76. guest-avatar

    Enthusiastically recommend this software, it's so jam packed with info, especially compared with some other almanacs I've used in the past. Great job!

  77. guest-avatar

    Based on the same CIA data as many other apps, but this one is by far the best I tried due to the very efficient layout, comparison function and the ordering function.

  83. guest-avatar

    I like it eventhough the data is not 100% reliable bcoz of current socio-political view.

    This app is ok but needs to be updated.. please update this app

  85. guest-avatar

    Very intuitive and well organized. Nicely done.

  86. guest-avatar

    Only cons..it dont show the exact location of a country in the map,if done then it will be great..and pls add the currency ..otherwise very helpful..waiting for update

  87. guest-avatar

    Do you have any further plans to update this app for new features and data?

  88. guest-avatar

    If you are getting your information off of the CIA website then how can we trust it and how do we that it's not top Secret or classified information that you are putting out you need to rethink what you are doing

  89. guest-avatar

    This is better than expectation! It is full of information, very well organized, nice display, i love the comparison feature.. i wish i could give 10 stars

    Kashmir is not part of India. It belongs to Pakistan!

    Really useful.. But i think it'd be better to have all the alliances in an alphabetical list.. Would be easier to find one and would make the interface more condensed.
