If you'd like to travel the world, but don't have the money or time, try doing it visually from the comfiest chair in your home. With SightSee for iPad you get to see magnificent pictures from all around the world. How does SightSee work? You simply use a map around which you navigate to see global photographs. Of course, the public hosting sites are well-known ones such as Flickr and Panoramio. Use all your zoom and scroll gestures while you enjoy easy search capabilities too. Additionally, to help put things in perspective, you may view Wikitravel information from within the app to learn more about those amazing cities. Some of the globally enjoyable features of SightSee are as follows:

- A cluster of map pins shows all the major sights, but you can also find those off the beaten path treasures that are especially enjoyable.

- SightSee will remember your last location and you can bookmark your favorites.

- Enter your current location into the search bar to see what is nearby or press the Home button.

- Requires network connection (WiFi or 3G).

Not only will you enjoy the beautiful photos in this travel app, but you will also be educating yourself with the information available on culture and areas of interest. And why not daydream yourself away to another world anyway at the end of a long, hard day?

SUMMARY: SightSee will open your eyes to the many beautiful wonders of the world and countries you've heard about, but never before experienced in their glory.
