A great app for use at the scope Physical Mars is a great app for anyone observing Mars with a telescope. It has both globe views and map views with plenty of detailed information. The map can display labels of the major Martian features and landing sites. Maps showing day and night temperature, and topography can also be displayed.
Practical and down to earth, "No pun intended!". Lol. I agree with one reviewer that it needs a martian 24 hour clock.
Neat little pocket map This app has an excellent variety of maps and pinpoint temperature and elevation data. Though I think the map resolutions could be made just little bit higher for zooming into craters and valleys.
Very Cool (3D??) Graphics!!!! :-) This application is very very informative & educational!! But it would be cooler if you added a simulated surface 3D Graphics (of popular locations on Mars)!!!! Add a martian annual calender & a Martian (24 1/2 HR) clock!! Then this App would be super super cool & then I would then upgrade the rating to 5 Stars!!!! :) Really!!! OK???
