Atlas by Collins™
Selected as one of the 20 Best iOS Apps Of 2012 by Techcrunch.
See the world in context with Atlas by Collins™ by interacting with seven themed globes. The latest update includes a share function on all globes.
Each globe allows you to see themed information presented in beautiful mapping and graphics. In the Energy globe for example, you can overlay the Earth with information on energy resources, reserves, production, and consumption.
Because of the amount of information in the app, six of the globes will need to be downloaded after purchase, so we advise a good Wi-Fi connection. This app makes use of the latest Apple technology and is available for iPad 2 and above, and iPhone 4 and above only. It is not suitable for iPod Touch, iPad 1 or iPhone 3Gs and below. If you have any questions please see the list of FAQs on www.atlasbycollins.com, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
