Google Earth For iPhone

 In Environment, Technology

Google Earth hits the small screen with the release of its iPhone (and iPod Touch) version.
Although a natural for a nice big monitor and a fast computer, it holds up surprisingly well within the confines of the iPhone.
As well as some decent smooth zooming and searching – and the inclusion of familiar functions such as photos and Wikipedia location notes, it also holds the odd nice touch in reserve such as using the iPhone’s tilting to alter the view from ‘above’ to the more 3D angle treatment.
I need to get to know it a bit more but first impressions are pretty sweet :)
Here’s a quick trial run…

1 – Initial view

2 – Searching for “Talavera de la Reina”

3 – View of Talavera de la Reina, with picture icons and Wikipedia icon showing up (activated by tapping…)

4 – Tilted over, looking in 3D ‘landscape’ view, north from Talavera (the compass icon shows up in the top right corner)
Just go to the iTunes Store, and seaarch for “Google Earth”…
Enjoy :)
