Customer Reviews

Mars as I want to see it

Very good way to explore mars and learn the geography.
The only negative is that when spinning the globe from pole to pole it is obvious that the map and the globe do not match. You have to keep scrolling far more than normal than if the map and globe were in proportion.

Not worth it

Yes, there's a full version, but if you are going for the free version, it's a waste. Of time. For school astronomy it may not be so bad as it includes good facts and a guided tour of mars hotspots.

Altogether, for people who want HD graphics were you can explore and zoom full in to the red planet, this is a poor app and really not worth it.

Love it!

I have mars (and sometimes The Moon) spinning around on my desk! Would love to have Jupiter, Saturn and the rest of the planets to go with them! *hint hint, nudge nudge ;)
