"I like the way the World Factbook 2008 app breaks out each entry's categories into discrete sections-flag, map, introduction, geography, people, government, and so on. The breakdowns make for easier reading. I also like how World Factbook included icons of each country's flag next to its entry, which makes for slightly more attractive browsing. And, of course, I like having so much information handy with just a few taps of my finger. But the overall execution is bland and unrewarding. If Western ITS releases a 2009 version of the CIA World Factbook, it needs to produce a graphically appealing and complete edition worthy of the price tag."
