I've read a couple threads here and the CC license that GeoNames is under and it appears that as long as I give credit to where I obtain any data relating to Geo Names, everything seems fine under the terms of the license and I am able to use it for commercial purposes.

My question is more concerned with where/how it would be appropriate to provide credit. I am creating an app in android and ios that requires the use of geocoding. I plan to provide citation in a about page or something similar to that.

Is this an appropriate place or way to identify that my app uses GeoNames' data?

If I was wrong about anything, please correct me as I am still understanding these things and I want to properly display copyright.
