I want to try my hand on a fantasy story. That has a twist an setting like that of Game of Thrones. My fantasy world will be called Yunkastopia (still debating for a better name). I would wish to create a detailed setting with different worlds/kingdoms. 

Was just wondering which software or App can i use to create the Map complete with the geographical features.

I am not aware of any map making program/software but I use Photoshop for all my drawing/graphics requirements. I think Photoshop can be used for this purpose as well.

Great to have a testimonial to share that it on the features that worked well? Is it user friendly? Are the features easy to use? What type of device did you download it on?

@nancymac Youc an use Inkarnate completely in your browser. You can randomly generate landmasses and then alter it, or create it completely from scratch!
