This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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 is a must-have app for anyone interested in our solar system.
What's New in Version 2.3
• Updated for iOS 7 and iOS 8. iOS 7 or later is required for this update.
• Supports full resolution on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
• Slightly improved graphics rendering (since OpenGLES 1.x no longer has to be supported).
• Added MSL Curiosity time zone.
• Added link to my new app for visualizing Mars Rover images, Midnight Planets.
The app is made very well and allows the user to learn a lot about Mars through information on the app and multiple links provided. I would recommend this app to anyone who has an interest in Mars or astronomy.
Why is it so blurry and so many sections cropped out ?
Solar system awesomeness
This is a great app for teaching my children of the wonders of the solar system. I only wish the creators of this would build apps showcasing other planets, moons and asteroids, such as Europa, Enceladus, Pluto or Ceres. There are some great photos and files to work from these days.
