Flickr Earth definitely falls into the latter category.

There are a few ways of browsing photographs using the application, browsing photographs via a map of the world, any photos taken in a specific location are clearly marked.

- Viewing a photo also reveals a wealth of information, everything from the uploaders username to the type of Camera used to take the shot.
- Photographs viewed can also be saved to the device or shared via the web.
