Have Fun Exploring the World With What Country

Apalon has announced the release of What Country 1.0 for iPhone and iPod touch. What Country is an unusual collection of humorous photos spiced up with curious facts that are able to impress those who love travelling and who do not.

The core element of the app is the interactive world map with icons attributed to certain countries and descriptions consisting of just 3-5 keywords featuring particular countries. By tapping on a thumbnail of a country a user gets an access to the gallery of amazing images representing each country with not less amazing stories behind them. The initial content is obtained though the content deals with photographers around the world and will be updated through user-generated mechanisms built into the application.

What Country is built on Apalon's app gallery solution, which is used by bestseller iPhone apps such as Dream Home and Eye Illusions. That guarantees users engaging experience and easy navigation through the collection. One of the main features of the app is its interactive component. Users can rate photos they like, add them to Favorites and upload their own pictures complementing them with background information.

"Lots of people around the world love travelling and surprisingly even more do not. As a frequent traveler I met many people that heard about 10 or 15 countries at most. We wanted to change that with our What Country app that even non-travelers will want to own. It highlights only 3 or 4 key facts about each country and presents them in entertaining way that will make them laugh or smile." - said Peter Melnikov, VP of Apalon.

Pricing and Availability:
What Country 1.0 is only $0.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Travel category.
