I’ve always like twirling a physical globe and looking at each country, how it’s shaped, seeing what other countries it touches, and seeing where it is on the earth in respect to where I am. Now that the world has become easier to access, either online or by trips, experiencing different places has become more commonplace. For many, travelling may not be an option, but you can always look up information online about different countries and regions in the world. If you are looking for an even easier way to find that information, whether it be for curiosity’s sake, for educational purposes or just for fun, download iFinik – Countries of the World.
While apps that provide information about different countries of the world are not a new thing, and believe me there are plenty of them out there; iFinik provides an easy to use interface that presents information no each country in a consistent fashion so that you can easily compare apples to apples.
This is an obvious plus for users who will be using the app in a more educational capacity; let’s says for history class or even for economics. The app provides more prominent data on each country such as GDP, population, land area, inflation rate and indicators of economic growth, plus more.
While information on each country can be viewed individually, you can also take an analytical view, as well. In the Analytics area of the app, you can build comparison tables to see how the stats of each country compare with others.
The main page for each country provides a brief description along with languages that are spoken. Now, what I really liked about the app is that you can chat with other users of the app, so you can hear firsthand about how it is there. You can do this on an educational level, or you can do it as a tourist, getting ready to visit. How’s that for connectivity to a country!
If you are using it for travel, the app provides an illustrative portfolio of more popular sites in the country along with information about what’s around it and more. It makes planning for your trip easier, as you can see what is available to see and you can pick and choose what you’d like to see based on research.
There are about 193 UN countries and 23 state entities featured in the app, so you should be able to find the countries you need to. If not, I would highly recommend reaching out to developer Alex Finik so he can accommodate.
Easy to use and fun to browse, iFinik – Countries of the World has a lot to offer. What would be nice is to see some maps of how the country is situated in the world, like in which continent. It would add to the richness of the information already provided.
As is, the app provides an abundance of information on almost any country you’d want to learn more about, and where else are you going to be able to chat with someone who is from there, which is the best source of all.
