    The World Daily app is live on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/the-world-daily/id522706360?mt=8. It is the first and only app to display near real-time satellite images of any location on the planet. After you select a location, date, and zoom level, you can see a stunning view as if you were floating in space. NASAs satellites circle the globe every day, and now you can access the results with a few taps on your device. The medium resolution imagery does not show things like people, cars, houses or even some small towns, but you can use this app to:

    See major storms headed your way
    Check for snow in the mountains before your ski trip
    Watch wildfires change over time
    Explore interesting landforms from a unique perspective
    Enjoy the beauty of the earth from above

    FEATURES
    View satellite images updated daily at ~800 foot (250 meters) resolution
    Select from three light band combinations that highlight natural color, wildfires, and snow cover
    Share images with friends via email or save it to your device
    Save favorite locations to easily view changes over time
    Access a historical archive of almost 1 year of daily satellite images
    Overlay political boundaries for reference
    No adds or in-app purchases

    The Earth is big, beautiful, and ever changing. Explore the globe and share your findings with The World Daily. See some examples here: http://www.facebook.com/TheWorldDaily
