Russian Federation Regions

At last, I created an app about my native country – Russian Federation Regions. It will add to my collection of apps about the regional geography.

The English description of the game is the following:

Learn names, locations on the map, capitals and coats of arms of all federal subjects (regions) of Russia (there are 85 subjects according to the Russian Constitution: 46 oblasts, 22 republics, 9 krais, 4 autonomous okrugs, 3 federal cities, and 1 autonomous oblast).
Become an expert in Russian geography!

*****
The app is only localized into English and Russian, because I understand that it’s not so much interest and knowledge in Russian subdivisions in the world. I followed the Constitution of Russia and thus had to include the two newest and still disputed regions: Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol.

Russian Leaders

Russian Leaders is my new app that has one important feature that I never tried before: it’s default language is Russian, i.e. it is shown in Russian in all non-localized Stores. The app itself may be called an answer to my previous and quite successful app about US Presidents. In case of Russian and Soviet leaders, it is not straightforward to build a definite list of names. There are many insignificant Grand Princes or Tsars who ruled for just a couple of years. So I finally chose 28 leaders with a possibility to add several more if the app is doing well.

The English description of the game is the following:

Check your knowledge of the Russian and Soviet history! This app has portraits and additional info about 28 most important Russian leaders – Peter the Great and Joseph Stalin, Ivan the Terrible and Mikhail Gorbachev. Can you guess them all?
