The World HD is unique in the app store because it includes both a complete set of country maps AND the largest world fact book. These enable it to answer questions which Atlases and fact books cannot: Atlases show you where countries are located, but have very little information about them; fact books tell you about each country, but their maps leave you guessing about where places are located.


The interface is animated and interactive. Touch a country on the world map and the Retina vector country map opens while the factbook slides onto the screen, each topic neatly organized as tiles along the edge of the map. Touch a factbook tile and it zooms out to reveal detailed information about that topic. Not sure where a country is located? Select it on the drop-down list and The World HD zooms in on it then opens the map and factbook.

The zoomable world map is not just the fastest way to select a country it also enables you to visualize and understand entire regions. It is so intuitive and easy to explore that once you get started it's hard to stop!



Includes high-resolution Retina vector maps for EVERY COUNTRY built-in! Unlike the other atlases, these maps remain in focus at all magnifications so you can easily see even the smallest detail. These aren't the CIA maps found in the factbooks, they are used in printed atlases.


Contains 150+ MB of geopolitical and demographic information on 300 countries and regions.


Presents each section of the fact book as tiles enabling you to quickly find what you need, while keeping the country map in view.


Responds to your touches and gestures so you can quickly find the information you are looking for.


This trusted source of current country information is built-in for every country, including sections on: introduction, geography, people, economy, communications, transportation, military, and transnational issues.


View the live, community-written Wikipedia content for each country, island, and remote region within the app.

The Best Atlas on the App Store!

I use this app constantly in my political science class as a teaching tool. When we are discussing a foreign country it helps to bring this up to give the students a frame of reference. The maps and data are the best I've seen and I've tried them all.

The maps are atlas quality (I'm sure I've seen them before, but not sure which printed atlas) and they work better than Google maps which have more detail but are really hard to use as a reference since large cities and small cities just mix together with the same small text. I see some negative reviews here about the maps, but I can't imagine what they are expecting. These maps are very good!

The CIA factbook and Wikipedia let us drill down into the details and are up to date. Since our textbook is a couple years old, I often go here to check information. I really like the data cards interface - very quick and easy to use. I was surprised when I accidentally touched on the Canary Islands, which isn't a country, and up came the info on it too! It's very comprehensive.

Overall just an outstanding ap!!!

5/5 stars

Great travel companion

This app is an essential part of my travel kit. I am a frequent flyer (finally hit 1M miles in January!) and I LOVE my iPad. This app and the WSJ are my two favorites on it. It's a great reference and I really enjoy reviewing where I've been on the maps and learning about places I'm traveling to. It simply has a TON of information and maps which make those long legs and layovers go by quickly. If you're looking for a travel companion, you really can't go wrong with this one. Just buy it!

5/5 stars

New March 2011 update makes this the best world atlas app

I've used many of the map apps out there and none of them have been very useful. Now that I can zoom into areas and get a crisp view of the cities in countries, I'm thrilled. Nice job!
