WHAT PEOPLE SAY:
"Geo Walk is also an educational app, and features a rotatable model of Earth, with various landmarks and places touchable on it. Click on the Eiffel Tower, and you'll get a picture, as well as a quick blurb about the structure. The design seems to be the same as the other Vito apps -- create an interface that's fun and easy to navigate around, and then fill it with as much information as possible." © Mike Schramm, TUAW
"Geo Walk doesn't explore deep space, it explores our own varied planet. Think of Geo Walk as a world fact book at your fingertips." © Mel Martin, TUAW
