Fragile Earth App Shows Impact of Man & Natural Disasters on the Earth

Fragile Earth DayIn honor of Earth Day today, I wanted to share a really cool new app for iPhone and iPad. HarperCollins UK released Fragile Earth, which shows many of the transformations the earth has made due to both man-made and natural disasters.

The images on this app are amazing and makes it very easy to see the changes the earth has gone through by showing you before and after pictures. This app would be a great classroom tool because it’s so visual.

We set out to create an app that would convey the innate and delicate beauty of the world’s landscape, while highlighting the dramatic shifts that are taking place across the globe,” said Jethro Lennox, Head of Publishing for Collins Geo, a division of HarperCollins UK.

  1. That’s an incredible video. If only people got behind apps like this as passionately as they do with things like Angry Birds and other video games. I appreciate you bringing this to our attention!
