Ancient Earth: Breakup of Pangea
By Thomas L. Moore
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Have you ever wanted to travel back in time? Well, jump on the Ancient Earth time machine app and travel back to a time before the age of dinosaurs, before the evolution of flowering plants, before the last great Ice Age, and well before the appearance of the first humans on Earth. Ancient Earth: Breakup of Pangea vividly illustrates the breakup of the supercontinent of Pangea during the Mesozoic and Cenozoic (200 Ma-0 Ma). Watch as continents drift apart, mountain ranges rise and fall, new ocean basins open, landmasses are flooded by rising sea level, and polar ice caps wax and wane.

Way better than static flat maps
I was delighted to find this very clever app. For a couple years, I had been using the series of maps available on the PaleoMap Project online. This app has turned flat maps into a navigable globe. So much easier to use and to visualize and illustrate changes over the last 200 million years.
Everyone I show this to wants one for themselves!
Great, and just half the story
I just discovered Dr Scotese's maps and was delighted to get the app so I could look at the movements at the poles. The time line is great and being able to lock onto a particular location or continent is very informative.
The app only goes to 201 MYA! If you want the formation of Pangea from the Cambrian, you must buy another App. The app would have been rated 5. As it only provides a half the story, the rating is half.
There are other apps that are better and MUCH cheaper. Try Iapetus.
