"Physical Mars" is designed to assist telescope observation and imaging of the planet Mars. Martian ephemerides are provided for real-time or a selected date. Mars is illustrated in the form of a mercator map and a 3D globe showing day & night on the planet. Sub-solar and Sub-Earth positions are plotted on the map. Further provided, a view of Mars' elongation with respect to Earth and Sun.

Physical Mars comes with a small database of major and popular features, all with images.

Since the application uses a hi-res map of Mars, your phone will need some guts (1GHz CPU min.)

    This app has an excellent variety of maps and pinpoint temperature and elevation data. Though I think the map resolutions could be made just little bit higher for zooming into craters and valleys.
