A planet in your pocket

This App works really well. Being able to browse the whole of Mars under any lighting conditions is a blast. The guided tour is well thought out and the word cloud labels are just right. The resolution is not mind-blowing (though the paid version is higher), but the total experience is really excellent. Having a a slick interactive planet in your pocket is really fun.

Hope the author has a go at Pluto now that some quality photos are being received from New Horizons.
