Description

The pangaea app dynamically shows the breakup of the supercontinent Pangaea and the positions of the continents over the last 200 million years on a 3D globe. Significant events are indicated on the globe at the time of the event (millions of years ago). Tapping an event provides information about that event, certain events have an illustration with additional information.

Latitude and longitude (of the center of the display), time in Ma (millions of years ago), and geologic time period and epoch are continuously displayed. Drag the slider to move through time. Tap the arrow buttons at the ends of the slider to move one step at a time. Tap the background of the slider to jump to a time. Drag the globe left and right or up and down to rotate it. Pinch the globe to enlarge it.

Illustrated by Dennis Tasa. The modern shapes of the continents are retained throughout time to help identify them.

Great educational app!!!

:
As a teacher of geology I love this app. It has very good graphics and information. It's excellent for teaching and understanding plate tectonics and historical geology. I showed it to a few students and friends and they all love it too. Thanks for the great app.

Shows the educational potential of iPhone apps. Fun to play with too!

:
This app makes use of the touch UI to show the movement of the earth's continents over time. 200 million years fly by as you watch the continents move to their current positions . This is another app that shows the educational potential of the iPhone and iPod touch. It provides several 'events' that can be used as topics for further investigation in the classroom.

3/5 stars

Not bad

:
My only complaint, as a geology major, is that I would prefer that the continents be displayed in their theorized form at the given time, rather than dumbing it down and always displaying them as they look today.
