While you won’t find an easy way to see parts of the earth from space like you can enjoy in the wallpapers within WLPPR, there is an app available that will help you find the most spectacular views from up high. With Views on Top, you can quickly search for restaurants, rooftop bars, and special places with spectacular views.
Plenty of locations to choose from
Views on Top covers more than 800 destinations in 420 popular locations. It includes rooftop and other high-flying views from 84 different countries. You can search near you, or browse through the available spots to find those awesome sights. You can search for buildings, towers, monuments, mountains, bridges, wheels, and more. While the app will show you where a particular spot is on the map, there is no easy way to get directions to the vantage point. It would be nice to see the locations open up in Apple Maps on your iOS device.
While the app doesn’t allow you to get easy directions, it will help you book tickets and reserve rooms at or near the outstanding vantage points. You can also add comments, share photos, and recommend your own locations with views.
Hand-picked, curated images
Views on Top doesn’t just tell you where the hot views are, it shows them to you. All of the images are submitted and hand-picked by the community, so you get to see the views from people who have actually been there. Want to see a selection of what’s available?

Getting the views
Views on Top is designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, and requires iOS 7 or later. It is available as a free download on the App Store, without any ads or in-app purchases.
