Globebop is good as a tourist guide—click the HOME button in Map View to display Wikipedia article markers about of interest places nearby. Click the globe to spin it and be transported somewhere random on the planet and view Google Street View photo-spheres. Click the magnifying glass to read Wikipedia articles about your current place or search for a place. Click Map View to go back and forth between Map View and Street View. Globebop is also good for "couch-potato tourism". See something new every time, as iut rarely shows you places you've already visited.
