Discovery Education has announced the launch of the U.S. Geography by Discovery Education App for iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store for download globally.

Conceived and developed in conjunction with Phunware, the U.S. Geography by Discovery Education App delivers a fun and educational solution to engage students in learning about United States geography, according to the announcement. Through videos, knowledge-based challenges, and games aligned to national education standards, plus a leaderboard-driven competition, Discovery Education's first app immerses students in U.S. geography concepts in a new and exciting way.

The U.S. Geography by Discovery Education App is designed for middle school students, but is fun and informative for all ages, the announcement states. The app features a collection of videos, interactive gameplay, and global competition and sharing. With multimedia content hand picked by Discovery Education curriculum experts and aligned to national learning standards, the app allows users to explore seven U.S. geographic regions (Pacific, Mountain, Southwest, Midwest, Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and New England) across six categories, such as bodies of water, culture, and major cities. The U.S. Geography by Discovery Education App also features related stories from Discovery News. Covering everyday news through the lens of science, Discovery News is updated frequently to coincide with current events.

The U.S. Geography by Discovery Education App is currently available for purchase for $4.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at, and will be available for the iPad later this summer.
