In the figure below, equilateral triangles ABC1, BCA1, and ACB1 are constructed externally on the sides of a triangle ABC. Prove that the centers A2, B2, and C2, of those equilateral triangles form an equilateral triangle, called the outer Napoleon triangle.

Apollonius for iPad: Napoleon's Theorem
I drew the geometric construction above using Apollonius for iPad.

Apollonius is an interactive geometry app (IGS, or Dynamic Geometry Environment, DGE). It allows you to create geometric constructions, such as those that can be made using a ruler and a compass, and subsequently move parts of your constructions to explore the relationship between the geometric objects on the screen.

Apollonius is inspired by software such as GeoGebra, The Geometer's Sketchpad and Cabri, but its interface is especially designed for touch screen.
