iTunesArtwork@2xState Bingo and Geography Crossword, by Niyaa Apps, has just been released for the iPhone to compliment the very popular State Bingo and Road Trip US. Now kids can play anytime, anywhere, with the convenience and accessibility of the iPhone.

Students who tried this app were educationally immersed in learning fun, all while gaining new knowledge about the United States. It’s hard not to love solving a crossword puzzle; the letter clues are extremely helpful. The ability to skip and return to a question if stumped sets kids up for success! The three levels within the crossword are appropriately spaced and the difficulty of levels are just right:
Easy – Game allows for endless play. Unlimited flat tires.
Medium – Riddles are harder. Game ends after 2 flat tires.
Hard – Riddles are harder. Game ends after 1 flat tire

Who knew the crossword puzzle was turning 100 years old? Now you do! The original was called a “word-cross”, was organized by numbers instead of down and across and it was in a diamond pattern. The original concept has remained relatively unchanged. Niyaa Apps has continued the tradition and their newest app enables kids to play this classic game via the iPhone while learning valuable lessons about our land!
