Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Take a tour of the mysterious Red Planet. This virtual globe combines a high-resolution satellite map with laser altimeter data and advanced topographic lighting to present the planet Mars as it appears from above. An Introduction and Guided Tour present some of Mars' most intriguing features. You can leave the guided tour and explore Mars as you like; over 1500 surface features have been annotated with information and links. Mars Globe HD is a must-have app for anyone interested in our solar system.
PLEASE NOTE: Regular Mars Globe is a smaller download and is free. This HD version has slightly, not extremely, better resolution and rendering.

Great Interactivity and Basic Info
I downloaded this app while reading the book "The Martian" by Andy Weir so I could get a good sense of the Martian journey. I would have given it five stars if it had missing detail and names but am otherwise pleasantly surprised for an iPhone app. The HD is worth the small upgrade. Highly recommended for anyone interesting in exploring Mars!
