The Earth by Tinybop
£2.49 Developer Tinybop, tinybop.com Works with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad
Tinybop has been producing great interactive apps for children for years, with subjects ranging from the human body to flying machines. Here, it’s the turn of the Earth and its processes. You wander through a beautifully illustrated planet Earth stopping to watch animations unfold of volcanoes, shifting tectonic plates and the paths of rivers.
It’s both playful and educational, all produced in Tinybop’s trademark style. So whether you’re into pre-Pangea or today’s Earth, this app is just the thing to get kids really interested in our world.
