  • Exploring the world at home, through a computer screen?

    These days, that’s no problem at all. If you have an iPhone, iPad or Mac, you can simply install the free Maps app, which has a 3D flyover tour feature. With the slogan “Visit interesting places before you actually go”, you can explore many major cities and other interesting places with this app’s 3D flyover tour. One tap or click is all it takes for the camera to automatically show you the top tourist attractions. Never been to New York? Then come on, let’s go! Has Acapulco always seemed too far away? Now all it takes is a tap or click. Are you in the mood for Hawaii? Type in ‘Lihue’ then sit back, relax and marvel at the two waterfalls in 3D. It’s almost like looking at a photo. Or would you prefer something more mystical and adventurous? Then let’s go to Stonehenge!
