Moon Globe HD is, well, fantastic. This universal app has already been optimized for the iPad 2. We love that the developer actually recommends the free version over the paid version for most of its users! The description clearly says that unless you are a moon fanatic that needs the ultrahigh resolution included in the HD version, that you should download the free version instead. So, if you are someone that craves really great-looking moon images, then grab the HD version. There is a really cool feature that lets you view the moon as it looks from your location. You can also browse the moon’s globe as you would in Google Earth. Moon Globe and Moon Globe HD are the essential moon map apps.

What is it about?

Hold the Moon in your hands. Moon Globe HD turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a precision instrument for viewing Earth's Moon. Satellite imagery and topographic laser altimeter data are combined to render the Moon with realistic lighting in realtime 3D.

App Store Description

Hold the Moon in your hands. Moon Globe HD turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a precision instrument for viewing Earth's Moon. Satellite imagery and topographic laser altimeter data are combined to render the Moon with realistic lighting in realtime 3D.

Use the multitouch screen to manipulate the view. Spin above the surface, or switch to Telescope mode to see the Moon as it appears from your location on Earth. Adjust the display time and watch the sunlight shift over the lunar landscape. A "tag cloud" floats just above the surface, labeling terrain features and spacecraft; touch any label to find out more about that feature. Moon Globe also shows you where the Moon and Sun are in the sky with its dynamic sky compass.

PLEASE NOTE: Regular Moon Globe is a smaller download and is free. This HD version has slightly, not extremely, better resolution.
