I've been working in Kosovo for over four years and have followed the Kosovo statehood issue pretty closely. Kosovo is de facto independent since it's extremely unlikely that Serbia will try to re-invade and reclaim its former province during our lifetimes. Yes, the US and a slew of other nations are supporting Kosovo's declaration of independence from Serbia. Also, an EU court with jurisdiction in this matter has ruled that countries like Kosovo have the right to secede. Nevertheless, a significant minority of nations, including China and Russia who are permanent members of the UN Security Council and who carry tremendous weight, have resisted this claim. Kosovo's statehood depends a great deal on one's point of view, but the matter is far from settled.

Perhaps what is being overlooked is that the criteria for claiming independence, for achieving "defacto independence", and for being recognized as independent by either the EU or the UN; are not the same criteria, as that required for being permanently added to all globes, world maps, and corresponding software programs. The politics of it all is irrelevant to map makers who must maintain their own empirical standards and requirements for all things geographical. As far as children being informed properly -- that is primarily the job of teachers, and secondarily that of the parents. Even with the exclusion of Kosovo from any map, the topic could still be taught in the contexts of the world's changing geography, International politics, democracy rights and many others. Your sense of pride and desire to achieve acceptance as a "country" is admirable but your continuing fight is not one to have with map makers (be it hard copy or software).

My apologies to Fatosi, you are right that Kosovo has been technically recognized as independent but I am unsure if it has been recognized as an independent 'country'.
I can only imagine that maybe , Kosovo is possibly seen as a political 'hot potato' and for the present hasn't made its way into this application. Sorry for any confusion I may given.

More than two years ago a new Country was declared independent -- it is the Republic of Kosovo with Pristina as a capital city. I can't see that in your map. Just to remind you that the USA an 68 other countries have recognized this new country (which is the most pro-American country in the World).
Kids should be informed properly.

I don't wish to sound pedantic but you sound a little confused on your 'facts'. Kosovo is not a country but a province. It has declared itself as independent but as such It is not recognized as as yet, by any international country and as at the time of writing is administered by the UN and watched over by NATO.
Ergo, Kosovo as a 'country' could not be shown in this application.

Free alternative to learn such things and much more would be http://smart.fm or programs like Anki. This is not to say that this software is not nice, but cost-benefit is questionable.
