App Review – Google Earth

 

google-earth

 Developer: Google Mobile
 Category: Travel
 Price: Free

 It was only a matter of time before this app  found its way on to the iPhone. The big  question is: is it that different from Maps?
 Well, luckily it is. First you get the cool shot at the  start of the app where you can navigate around the  globe and zoom in to somewhere that you like the look  of. You also get extremely cool animated transitions  between the location you’re looking at and any search  you action, or if you pressthe Location Finder button.  Even cooler than that though, you can tilt your iPhone  and your viewing angle will change, allowing you to  see the terrain. On top of this you also get handy icons  that appear allowing you to quickly access Wikipedia articles.This is great fun, but it works much better on Wi-Fi than on 3G.
