How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing intuitive about it. November 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
I cannot figure out how to tell the app where I am. I have typed in my city, state and zip. I have typed in the nearest city, state and zip. I keep getting a message that says "unable to locate your whereabouts."

When I tried to use the feature to give them my comments about the app, nothing happened.

How do I figure out how to use this app?

I loaded this knowing that I could not incorporate GPS coordinates onto my Kindle Fire HD. The reason I wanted it was just to be able to browse all the points of interests I seen on the download page. It continually crashed on my device, and every attempt I made to search a destination all it led me to was another crash. So as it turns out this app is totally useless and has no redeeming qualities to it. I have this app on my iPhone and Mac, and it works fabulously on both devices. I can't say the same for this one. Take care all....

It always shows 'Location not found'. All it will show are like very famous world landmarks. Unless that is what you are looking for, save your money.

Well this is real something I got everything I had requested my kids are well high in school and for first time their grading exceeded in qualifications and due to this magnificence application they'd gain a very nice excursion to an amusement park (well deserved). I do not have any inconvenience to study any region in the world. Also I have to take into consideration that beforehand my application advised me about some feature may not work in my tablet,kindlefire, etc. So, World Explorer App. Did work fine for me esp. In geography, customs, etc. Thanks a heap for the creator (s) of this great compilation of knowledge.

Ex Animo, Skyblue

1.0 out of 5 stars World Explorer
does not always pick up destinations when you travel, easily. Must type in local and then you do not see what interests you.
I stopped using it.
