50 Wonders. 100+ Photos. 1 App.
A wondrous book—now on a wondrous device, the iPad
The editors of LIFE take you on a visual journey through the Grand Canyon to the Eiffel Tower, the pyramids of Giza, the Galápagos islands and so much more. Fifty Wonders in all, on a device that lets you swipe, scroll through and marvel at more than 100 photographs in landscape orientation on your iPad.
We return to the sites of the original Seven Wonders and then keep right on traveling around the globe—eventually visiting in words and pictures seven-times-seven Wonders, plus one more. There are old Wonders here and a new list offered by the New7Wonders Foundation, as well as natural and man-made wonders.
The amazing stories behind your favorites are recountered as LIFE goes to the Colosseum, to Stonehenge, to the Great Wall, to Machu Picchu, to the Taj Mahal, to Easter Island, to the Acropolis and the Vatican and back to the Great Pyramid. We even travel into outer space for a close-up look at the international space station, and into the sea for a sensational view of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

What's New in Version 1.1.6
- Re-opening the app returns you to the page you were last viewing.
- iOS 4.2 support
The photo are amazing but that alone doesn't make the $9.99 cost worthy of an iPad experience.
Another case of being lazy and just dropping print into a digital experience.
Don't waste your money
I should have listened to the other reviews. This book has magnificent photos and EVERY SINGLE ONE has a block of text covering part of the photo. I can't believe they would do this! LIFE please do an update and take off the blocks of text. Until they do this app is not worth spending any money on. They should be ashamed!
I really enjoy with this app. Appreciate the info for each picture to is wonderful job. Thanks.
