What did Earth’s continents and oceans look like 250 million years ago, or even 1 billion years ago? What do we know about the climate back when our planet formed?

This free iPad app allows you to follow continental drift and certain aspects of climate change from 540 million years ago to the present without having to reload. It has several other useful and interesting additional features as compared to 'Ancient Earth'.
