National Geographic Launches Fancy iPhone Atlas App

It’s the whole world for two bucks ($1.99, to be exact). National Geographic‘s newest app, a comprehensive world atlas that takes advantage of all of iPhone’s features (including GPS), has just gone live in the App Store.

Unusual features include seven levels of cartography, and, most interestingly, a partnership with Microsoft to provide access to seven more layers of mapping through Bing (there have been rumors, today, by the way, that Apple is in talks with Microsoft to replace Google with Bing as the default search engine for the iPhone). iPhones with GPS can use the map to pinpoint their location on the NG map.

This looks cool on an iPhone, but imagine driving in your hovercar, from Jersey to Bombay, flicking your way through this atlas on your 10th generation Apple tablet…
