It's produced by SquishLogic and is available on the App Store.
Steve told me about the apps, which are for a range of different continents and areas.
They would be good to have on a class iPod Touch (or set if they were available)
The apps were developed with feedback from a Grade 5 class studying geography. The students took their review seriously and gave us many great comments, which we implemented in revisions to our app. The result is a great game that provides beautiful maps, teaches elementary kids (and adults) the geography of important areas of the world, and is fun too.
High scores get posted to our website so you can see how you stack up against the competition. We take privacy seriously, especially for kids, so we ask that they only post their first name and we only indicate the state or region that the player is from (nothing more specific).

Your readers can find the whole line just by searching for JigsawGeo in the Apple iTunes app store. The apps work on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. They cost 69p.
For readers of this blog who are in the United States only, Steve has made available a special offer to readers of the LIVING GEOGRAPHY / CULTCHA blogs.
There are three free PROMO CODES below, which are available on a first come-first served basis. They are for the Jigsaw GEO Europe game.
The first US reader to use a code gets it, then it expires at that point, so first-come, first-served.
These codes (only available in the US) expire on 3 Oct 2011.
Who knows - when the new Curriculum review is published, this sort of knowledge might be the basis for a whole year's work !
