Orboot Earth requires a smart device to display all the interactive games and features that make this product shine. Once the Orboot app is downloaded, however, the child can play without the need for a WiFi or internet connection. PlayShifu recommends occasionally connecting the app to the internet to receive updates and access new Orboot games or levels.
Orboot Earth works with the following iOS devices: iPad 5th generation and later, all iPad Air models, all iPad Pro models, iPad Mini 2 and later, and iPhone 6 and later. Android device users need at least 3 GB of RAM. Note that Amazon Fire tablets are not supported. If you have one, you may need to look for an alternative. Once setup is complete, use the smart device to scan icons on the globe’s surface and select a category to explore.
