Visit 890 UNESCO World Heritage Sites with Free iPhone/iPad App

The new Fotopedia Heritage app for the iPhone and iPad lets the world come to you. (Download here.) Drawing on 20,000 curated photos taken by thousands of photographers from the Fotopedia community, this FREE app lets you visit (at least virtually) 890 UNESCO World Heritage sites. In a matter of minutes, you can move from Notre Dame in Paris, to the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, to Machu Picchu in Peru, to the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. You get the picture. And speaking of pictures, it’s worth noting that all photos are released under a Creative Commons license. A very nice touch. Let me finally mention that the app has some smart mashup features, including maps showing the location of each site, plus Wikipedia entries offering background information on each location. You can start downloading the app right here. (Many thanks to Jane for calling this out.)
