While there are many maps and geography apps that will help you learn about latitude and longitude, GeoGoggle helps you get a much clearer understanding of these concepts through augmented reality. Geared towards students, the app helps to calculate the distance between two points, taking education out of the classroom and into the real world for practical use. The app detects speed of movement, distance to a destination and serves as a digital compass, making the information presented first-hand to a user clearer than what you'd ordinarily get out of a school textbook.

Whether you're a student or not, the app would be perfect at giving you the upper hand for a treasure hunt or an outdoor game of Geocatching.
