Are you looking to get a head start at school? Or have you just always wanted to discover the United States? Discovery Education's U.S. Geography app for iPhone and iPod Touch is the perfect way to become an expert in U.S. Geography while being entertained for hours on end. With dozens of breathtaking videos, interactive gameplay, global competition and sharing -- there's never been a more exciting and engaging way to experience U.S. Geography!

"This app makes learning about our country as painless as possible. U.S. Geography is as much fun as it is challenging with videos, games and quizzes with curriculum that's aligned to national standards." - Scholastic, June 2010

Students and adults alike can explore the United States from multimedia content hand picked by Discovery Education experts and directly aligned to national curriculum standards. The most comprehensive U.S. Geography app in the App Store challenges you to earn 126 unique achievements as well as daily medallions for every week you play. Find your friends in the app, compete in 42 different challenges, and see how you rank against the rest of the world!

Although the app supplements students studying U.S. Geography in the classroom, it is also equally enjoyable for people of all ages and backgrounds. Watch a video about Yellowstone National Park and challenge yourself to identify Wyoming on a map. If you've always been curious about geography and looking for a new way to experience America, this app is for you!

You are also treated to dozens of Discovery News stories, updated frequently and addressing topics like the Earth, archeology and dinosaurs. The stories are often published to coincide with current events -- a great way to stay up to date on the world around you.

The app is divided into 7 geographic regions (Pacific, Mountain, Southwest, Midwest, Southeast, Mid Atlantic, and New England) with 6 categories per region (region overview, bodies of water, culture, climate, landforms and major cities). Achievements are earned by completing activities which correspond the regions to their categories (i.e., Pacific Region Bodies of Water). Once activities are completed, users compete for the highest score in the challenges section. Share your achievements on either your own Facebook wall or your parents' Facebook walls to keep them informed of your progress.
