    hey guys!
    its school time and i made a thread last week listing all the best apps for school.
    well I have geography and I need a good world atlas.
    Is there any atlas for the iphone thats just like a real atlas on a book?
    price is not an issue as im sure the app will cost less then a real atlas.

    thanks!

    You'll probably be better off by scanning a good atlas and saving the pictures on the iPod.

    I think there's an app called "Pocket World Maps" or something like that but it's really basic stuff and not really worth the money. Even by doing screen captures of Google Maps the maps would have more detail (and would be free of charge).

    Go to http://maps.google.com and press the Print Screen button (usually near the F12 key), go to Paint (or similar), Edit, Paste and save it as JPG (or better yet, PNG). Then transfer it to the iPod. Also, if you need statistics and stuff you can get them off Wikipedia and save them as JPG or PNG too.
