Description

Someday, humans will use robotic airplanes to explore other planets in our solar system, like Mars. Until then, take an amazing aerial tour of Mars on your iPhone or iPod Touch with Mars Flyer.

The mission begins with a detailed pinch/drag topographic map of the planet, which is used to set start and end points of a flight route. Then terrain data is loaded, and off you go! Mars Flyer utilizes high resolution color photographic imagery of Mars, showing the planet in rich, exquisite aerial detail. Queue up your own soundtrack of songs from the iPod music library to enhance this amazing visual experience.

While this app is computationally intensive, it has been carefully tuned and optimized to run on all generations of iPhones and iPod Touches (iPhone OS 3.0 required). Options allow the app to be more memory-friendly on older devices. On the iPhone 3GS, performance of this app is incredible.

Note: Mars Flyer uses public-domain data from NASA and USGS, but is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, these agencies.

4/5 stars

Wonderful Way to explore Mars

:
Phenomenal Graphics!! You can set your own path to explore the Martian terrain. For further interest you can mark places during your flight to come back and explore further. I personally like the view without the plane - it really is expansive. Great to be able to set up some relaxing tunes and watch Mars go scrolling by. Great job, and exquisitely researched!

2/5 stars

Why isn't this 3-D?

:
I guess I expected too much for the price. This is simply a 2-d drawing of an airplane that moves on the screen by tilting the phone, combined with a non-interactive overhead view of the terrain. With topographic data we should be able to fly through the valleys. This was a really disappointing loss of money.

5/5 stars

Great app

:
I have decided this is an awesome app, the interface is slick, presentation is sharp, Mars looks beautiful, ipod support is a very nice feature. There is something oddly refreshing about listening to Pink Floyd while flying over Olympus Mons. Thanks for this great app!
