There are a lot of apps that teach you how to find stuff that's already been found...but now there's Terraphone, the first iPhone app devoted specifically to geologic discovery!
Terraphone is an easy interface to scientific analysis of the world around you. This is --NOT-- simply some book in iPhone form...this is a tool that brings ACTUAL SCIENCE to you in a highly-localized way. In other words: You choose a location, and Terraphone teaches you the science about it!

Things to know before you buy:
* Internet connection required to download data, but downloaded data can then be viewed offline through "History" and "Save" functions.
* Images are high-resolution so that you can zoom in and see great detail. As a result, load times vary. Be patient, the longer you wait, the more detailed the image is!
Terraphone not only works for your current location, but you can also study geology all over the United States. (limited data available for the state of Hawaii and many areas outside the US).
