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.

A fun visualization gizmo

Ancient Earth, as it's subtitle suggests is a great way to help a layperson (such as myself) visualize the breakup of Pangaea. It's also great fun to play around with and discover interesting little nuances of Earth's global geological history. While the app is rather expensive, when I consider the amount of work it borrows from its parent project (the PALEOMAP project) and the sheer novelty of seeing those maps as a time-shiftable, rotable globe, I am happy to spend that money. Caveat emptor.
I'm holding back on the full five stars as the interface is rather fiddly. (E.g. it's rather easy to wind up tilting the globe ninety degrees when attempting to rotate forty-five degrees, and then having to perform a multitouch re-tilt which only works under mysterious circumstances.)
