What's new

What’s new, you ask? Only two more incredible expansion packs to add to your global collection! Hooray!

After many moons of complicated scientific experiments to find the perfect packs, we are very proud to announce the arrival of…

(drum roll please)


The mighty International Football pack is fever-pitch full of facts, photos, rankings, stats and other fantastic football fun. You name it, we’ve somehow managed to fit it into this pack. You’ll find hand drawn home and away kits, upcoming fixtures and the latest results for every international team! Not to mention their national anthems!

And now for something completely different: for the World Art pack, we’ve sent our scouts through time and space across the world, gathering sculptures, textiles, jewellery, paintings, ceramics and photographs. With this pack, you can see how different cultures have created and viewed art, from prehistory to the present day. You can also test your skills with a sliding-tile art puzzle for every entry.

And if you look carefully, you’ll notice we have even MORE expansion packs in the pipeline. So watch this space…

Finally, we’ve squashed a few pesky bugs that we found scurrying around the globe. Take that!

Phew. We really hope you enjoy the new version of Barefoot World Atlas. As always, tell us your thoughts, and don't forget to rate the app and let us know on our Facebook page which packs you would like to see in the future.
