Google Earth is one of the most ambitious developments made by Google. With this marvelous air viewer developed by the company ‘Keyhole’ you can see the whole world through images taken by satellite.
Google Earth uses fantastic 3D graphics technology and broadband connections to show the users any part of the world, be it his own house or that country he has always wanted to visit but never could.
Furthermore, you can change the map perspective at any time if you want to change the orientation or have a more realistic view. In addition, if your Android device allows it, you can see 3D images of some of the most emblematic places of important cities such as Madrid, New York or New Delhi.
One of the most useful functions is the one to show the roads and the names of the streets in the chosen villages so you can use the program as a street map and guide to plan your trips. A list of the most well-known restaurants of the area will also appear.
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 Android 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 Android 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 Android, you can to perform almost all the operations carried out by Google Earth (in addition to the specific Google Maps ones).
Google Earth is one of the star apps developed by Google Inc., the official Android Market provider, responsible of other indispensable Android apps such as Google Books, Google Maps, Gmail or Blogger.
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.
