    Google Earth's review

    Published: 2012-12-18, by Peter Warrior.

    Google Earth for iOS is probably the easiest, fastest and cheapest way to visit the most beautiful places in the world.

    • Earth view and zoom-in effect
    • Amount of layers
    • Database: local info and photos
    • Wikipedia integration
    • Questionable usefulness if you already have Google Maps
    • Lag in some devices
    • Shortens battery life due to compass and accelerometer

    "Know the world like the back of your hand thanks to Google Earth"

    Thanks to its complete database you’ll get pictures, local info, layers, a 3D view -and much more- of almost any place on earth.

    Far gone are the days of Columbus and his caravels: today, exploring the world is as easy as installing Google Earth mobile in your iOS device. All you have to do is introduce the name of the place you want to fly to in the search bar and click. You’ll automatically get a real 3D bird’s eye view. Once you are located in the place you were looking for, you can change the layers to get local information on your destination (powered by the Wikipedia and Google Maps database). In addition, if your iOS is equipped with GPS, you’ll be able to set your location and search for local services around you. And as if that wasn’t enough, you can also search by voice for the places you want to fly to.

    Even though the interface and usability of Google Earth in its mobile version are quite good, we’re missing some extra layers and options. But even if we had them, is it really as useful as it sets out to be? After all, if you’ve already got Google Maps installed on your iOS, you can to perform almost all the operations carried out by Google Earth (in addition to the specific Google Maps ones).

    Get Google Earth if you’re looking for a comprehensive app for searching for places, but take into account that almost all its features are already included on Google Maps.
