Important Geography Apps on Android: Flags of the World, 50 US States, and European Countries

Three geographic apps that are performing very well on iOS (my top three apps of August in terms of income) are now available on the Google Play Store. And they are absolutely FREE, without in-app-purchases and questions / modes closed behind paywalls.

Dutch Provinces

Dutch Provinces or Provinces of the Netherlands is my latest app about the regional geography. It wasn’t on the top of my to-do list when I received a request to do an app about Netherlands from a person who liked my other apps. It was about three weeks ago and I was happy to create such an app and receive some help with translations into Dutch.

The English description of the game is the following:

Learn all 12 Provinces of the Netherlands (from Friesland to Zeeland) and 3 Public bodies in the Caribbean Netherlands (Bonaire, Sint Eustatius, and Saba):
* names
* maps
* capitals
* flags
* coats of arms

*****
The app itself was pretty straightforward to prepare using my previous apps as a template. However, once it was submitted and approved, I discovered a small but potentially annoying bug in several of my geography apps. I postponed the release of this app and prepared the updates for it and 8 other apps (they’ve been already approved and since it’s merely bug fixing I haven’t written separate posts about these updates). Finally, this morning the version 1.1 of Dutch Provinces passed the review and I make it available on the App Store. Enjoy!

I thank Mert for the idea of this app.
