GeoGuess: guess places and win prizes :)

Hello, a new update is now on App Store, GeoGuess is a geo-guessing game with nearly 8000 players and a shiny new website where you can play ( http://www.geoguess.com ). The iOS app is free, here's the link:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/geoguess/id470503058?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D2

and here the rules:

Guess which continent, country, and city photos were taken in.
Upload your favorite photo of a specific place, or try to guess where other photos were taken.
Try to upload only photos that are representative of a place – no one’s interested in seeing your bathroom

POINTS
If you guess where a photo was taken correctly, you win points:
• 2 points for continents
• 15 points for countries
• 20 points for cities

ATTEMPTS
You have three attempts to guess countries and cities, but you lose points for incorrect guesses:
• 3 points for the first incorrect guess
• 2 points for the second incorrect guess
If you fail to guess correctly, you lose 5 points.

HINTS
For countries and cities, you can spend 5 points to be told either the first letter of the place name, or how many letters long it is.

UPLOADING and SOCIAL INTERACTIONS
You get 3 points for uploading photos, and 20 points for sharing a link to the game’s website on Twitter or Facebook.

PRIZES
Each month (and randomly each week) the player who has gained most points in that time will win a prize (This month, there is an Amazon voucher (50$). The prize changes every time, and you can see what it is in the Prizes tab.

It's a good idea for an app though... even while i don't think that i will try it... Not because of the app, but because i'm not good at these country/city guessings
