"Geology In The Palm Of Your Hand"
Terraphone turns the iPhone into a true fossil and geology exploration and discovery device.
There are a lot of apps around that teach you how to find stuff that's already been found...but now there's Terraphone, the first iPhone app devoted specifically to geologic discovery...True Geology!.
Terraphone teaches you the real geology of the area you choose to study including the type and age of the layers of rock beneath your feet, the minerals, gemstones, and precious metals that have been found in the area and WHERE they were reported, and the types, estimated ages, and locations of fossil finds nearby.
By learning the details of the known geology of the area and studying those locations on satellite and other kinds of maps, the earth around you will open up and begin to reveal it's secrets.
Terraphone also helps your discovery efforts by providing a detailed mineral gallery and a truly extensive dictionary of geologic terms to help you become an earth science expert and to aid in mineral and rock identification.
Open Terraphone and you'll be amazed about how much is known and has been found in the earth around you.
