We have all heard this before: there is nothing one can’t do on an iPad (or iPhone). While that may be an exaggeration, the app store is expanding so fast, and it has something for everyone. These days you can even explore the Moon and other planets on your iPad. Moon Globe HD is one of those apps that lets you explore the moon and learn as much as you can about it on your tablet. You get to interact with a virtual moon, dig up information on important locations on it, and choose specific areas you want to visit on the moon.
Moon Globe gives you a realistic globe of the moon to explore on your iPad. It is designed to take full advantage of iPad’s features to bring you a dynamic experience. One can easily interact with the globe and find out more about specific craters or areas on the moon. The compass feature makes it easy to take a trip on the virtual moon and get to a specific point more easily.
Moon Globe HD has a ton of options. It lets you change your viewpoint or vision to get a better view of what you are looking at. You can even view the globe in anaglyph 3D, which is quite nice.
Moon Globe HD provides you with a summary of the most important points on the moon. It also gives you links that you can take advantage of to further research your favorite craters. Having the option to go back and forth in time to view different parts of the moon is useful too.
Overall, Moon Globe HD is another one of those apps that makes you want to own an iPad. No book can offer you anything close to the experience you get with Moon Globe HD. The graphics are superb and the animations are fast. A great application for anyone interested in astronomy and star-gazing.
