Who doesn’t like free? And who doesn’t like great iPad apps? When the two come together it’s good stuff. With that in mind, we’d like to share our Best Free iPad App of the Week here every weekend.
This week’s pick is National Geographic Today, from the National Geographic Society. It offers a daily dose of the famously spectacular photos from National Geographic, and a lot more besides.
National Geographic Today is another very nicely done app from National Geographic – I’ve not seen them put a foot wrong yet with their iOS apps.
The app opens to a blinds style view of the last seven days of daily photos and other content (shown in the screencap at the top of this post). Needless to say, the photos are superb …
It’s easy to toggle on and off photo details with just a single tap …
There are also excellent videos and articles to enjoy throughout the app …
It’s easy to share content via email, Twitter, or Facebook – and you can save the wonderful photos to use as wallpapers.
There are ‘Your Photos’ sections that are also full of great shots. I lived in London for a number of years, so I was happy a great ‘Your London Photos’ set …
You can also browse through the app in By Week and By Content views. The By Content view is divided into sections for Videos, Articles, Galleries, and Featured Photos.
If you’re a fan of National Geographic, or just a fan of great photography, you’re definitely going to want to give this app a look.
Here’s an App Store link for National Geographic Today.
