    Very Cool... Dunno what kind of response to expect for the app though. Doesn't seem most folks care about facts anymore.

    This is a great app to keep you company as you wait in the terminal for your out of the country flight. Always great to review facts. Thanks!

    This is really cool, I could have seen this coming in very handy with some classes I had in previous semesters but its still nice for quick reference. Thanks you!

    This is a great way to get sidelined into the extra security lane for further questioning as soon as someone sees you using it while waiting for your plane...

    j/k i like it.

    Great app! Thanks for making it.

    Question though.

    In the screen shot of Pakistan, there is a map located under the flag. but i do not see any map under any country at all in my pre. Why???


    If mapping is a coming feature, i am really looking forward to see it!!

    Keep up good job!!

    I'm not seeing any maps either.

    And is the developer watching this forum?

    I had to take the maps out.. because it was making the app too big to upload into the Homebrew Gallery... since then.. the administrators of this site have raised the upload limit.. so look for maps to be added to the next release.

    just fixed a problem that was causing only the first 50 entries about any country to show... Just posted version 1.0.1 that should show the full country info.

    Why not make the maps available selectively? That way one need only download a map or two. As an analogy, do you travel with your massive Times World Atlas ? Of course not. Offer detailed maps for selective download and you would have a killer app!

    Hi. I love the app, but it no longer works. I had installed the homebrew app v1.01. The Pre's Updater utility says an update is available but the download fails every time. When I try to launch the app it opens the updater instead. I finally tried deleting the app and reinstalling 1.0.1 but that fails, too. The error says "An error occurred, return value: 22. Command failed with return value 2: 'wget --passive ftp -q -P /tmp/ipkg/ (blah blah blah) Perhaps you need to run 'ipkg update'?"

    What's up? Is there an update for the homebrew version? Is it possible to get 1.0.1 working again?
