Have you ever imagine how it looks like if the earth were transparent?
You could see the other side of the world under your foot.
It might be a fantastic landscape, with mirror-reversed continents and oceans.
You would also realize that eastern countries are not in "east", or western countries arenot in "west" as you had thought of.
TransparentEarth enables you to see-through the earth.
Camera overlay view shows the position of major cities on the reversed blue marble.
Discover and explore the another face of the world.
- Works only on iOS4.0 or higher.
- TransparentEarth is for entertainment purposes only. The compass accuracy may be reduced when you use it close to metalic objects or electric equipment.

Interesting and fun without clutter
This seems seems pretty interesting and fun in my first day of use. Not only do you "see" what continents and major cities are on the other side of the earth from you, but when you hold your phone more horizontally, you "see" where cities are as well. I'm certainly enjoying this, and I very much appreciate the clutter-free simplicity.
Great fun map exercise
This is a great map app. It’s fun to see what’s on the other side of the globe. It gives reality to the expression “dig a hole to China” even if the other side of the planet isn’t China.
This morning, out of the blue, I was struck by an idea: wouldn't it be great if there was an app that showed what the earth would look like if it was transparent! It could be called "Transparent Earth". I spent the next few hours fleshing out the idea, then I searched for it on the app store, and there was the app, almost exactly as I imagined it, right down to the name! It was an idea who's time had come. The only difference between my app and the real one is that my app would show a transparent overlay of the earths core, and the opposite side of the globe would look farther away then the closest part, not the other way around. But enough of my nitpicking! Great job, kudos.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
