Google earth is an amazing app. They hold the unique distinction of being an app that really has no viable competition. They are the only company that has been able to do anything like they've done with Earth and have held that title for ages. I love exploring the world, especially 3d cities, and often spend hours at time doing so. Learning about parts of the world I would never otherwise be able to envision so clearly. Probably one of the coolest apps I've ever used!

Seems to lack most basic features from the regular program (like timelines and image dates, plus Sky and Mars, etc.). Plus most of the other stuff. Not great in comparison. It has proven basically useless for most of the reasons I've had for using it on the fly. Desktop version is far superior. But it works smooth and zooming, scrolling, and rotating the camera, as does street view. I'm just surprised this is so lacking by comparison, given the computing capabilities of modern mobile devices.

Great for finding whatever place on Earth you're looking for! Being able to see how many miles are between the places you want to go is great. Plus the story mode and places of interest that come up randomly are great and keep the experience fresh. You can disable those features if you're not interested of course. The graphics and animation of the globe is top-notch also.
