National Geographic World Atlas has joined the App parade. A great tool for those times you're lost in the streets of Buenos Aires sans map book, find wireless and voila, gps your current location. I imagine this app being used by the technology saavy and distinguished traveller who will appreciate using their iPhone/Touch to preform a map 'tri-search' using antique, classic view or satellite view (similar to Google earth enabling you to zoom to street levels).
According to the World Atlas App, their point of difference is "utilizing our highest resolution, “press-ready” images, providing you the same rich detail, accuracy, and artistic beauty found in our award-winning wall maps and bound atlases."
