Editors' Review

You know all that time you spend looking up your house and your friends' houses on Google Earth? Well, now you can do it anytime, anywhere with Google Earth for iPhone. It brings the popular virtual map service to your fingertips.

To begin, Google Earth for iPhone has a very helpful tutorial for navigating the app. For example, it uses circles to show you how to move up, down, tilt, zoom, and reset the view. We tapped the My Location button and gave it access to our current location. In just a few seconds, an overview of our neighborhood appeared on the screen. We zoomed in and found our house, which is both creepy and kind of cool at the same time. Once your location is found, the app introduces pictures of prominent landmarks, including schools and businesses that are close by that you can also browse. Using the app's search feature, we were able to look up the street view of a local chain grocery store, as well as go directly to the store's Web site. From the Setting menu, you can check off on the places you want to include while searching areas, including Wikipedia entries, surrounding businesses, and more. With just the tap of a button, you can also wipe your history and cache. Should you need it, help is available via a handy User Guide.

Google Earth for iPhone works just as well as the original version. We recommend it.

"Ancient info"

November 09, 2010  |  By ESL Trainer

 |  Version: Google Earth for iPhone 3.0

Pros

I like the thought of being able to view areas, topography, etc.

Cons

The information contained in Google Earth for Iphone is outdated. Although it's dated 2010, which maybe it is in some places, but it's not current for my location outside Washington DC, near Annapolis, in the Maryland 'burbs.

Summary

It's not up-to-date. For some reason I expect the images to be current, or at least changed in the past year. (Actually, I'd like real time, but...) Each time I've pulled up my location, hoping for something new, it still shows a view from over 3 years ago. There are items in my and my neighbor's backyards, along with a former neighbor's car, that haven't been there in that time. It's not like I live in the deepest part of the Amazon. This lets me know other places I'm viewing probably aren't up-to-date, either.

March 13, 2009  |  By qwaxz

 |  Version: Google Earth for iPhone 1.0.1

Pros

I don't know!

Cons

I can hardly find my self around with this app. It's much worse than the one for the computer!

Summary

Not much to say, it isn't really great unlike the computer platformed one which was revolutionary.
