PrimaLoft and National Geographic Adventure launch interactive iPad app
With amazing visuals of epic proportions, the new app “National Geographic Adventure: Greatest Stories Ever Told” creates an interactive digital experience that takes full advantage of the Apple iPad.
PrimaLoft has partnered with National Geographic Adventure to offer this inspiring app, which combines top-notch video, photography and interactive mapping to bring you stories of groundbreaking adventurers from National Geographic past and present. Watch daredevil climber Alex Honnold ascend Half Dome and El Capitan in the climbing Mecca of Yosemite – without the use of ropes. Experience the depths of the sea with Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard as he discovers the Titanic’s final resting place. Watch the nominees for “Adventurers of 2011” in action – all right on your iPad.
Scuba divers explore the "Blue Holes" in the Bahamas - with some amazing photos as a result.
“Greatest Stories Ever Told” content also allows you to follow Will Steger’s team with an interactive map on their Trans-Antarctic journey and experience -50˚F temps at the “bottom of the world.” Or study a fuming lava lake with scientists in the belly of the Congo’s Nyiragongo Volcano, in hopes of saving the growing city of Goma. Even dive deep into caves in the Bahamas as scientists search for clues to early planetary life.

Ed Note: I've found this review for the app to be excellent to help convey how immersive the content is.
