Atlas by Collins (launched today) pitches itself as the greatest app on Earth (geddit?). It’s a constantly evolving data visualisation tool for representing worldwide information on a selection of themed globes with over 200,000 places to explore.
I took a look and I have to say it is stupendous on the iPad.
Interactive spinning 3D globes have themes including energy and the environment, giving you the chance to tour the geographical and political world from the safety of your iOS device. If you have a well-thumbed atlas on your bookshelves then this is definitely for you.
