F A N T A S T I C! This FREE app was wonderful and now is exceptional... extraordinary! What are the poor reviews on about? I don't have a good connection (1mbs) and it's quick. My phone is ordinary - cheap! And all the new features work smoothly. Oh, and it DOES import KML and KMZ files (look in MyPlaces to import YourPlaces.... Duh!). Thanks Google!
Would like to view older satellite images. I'm curious as to being able to view the physical changes year-to-year of the ecosystem surrounding my property. There is a marsh close by I've witnessed its changes during my life. Curious what it may have looked like in my father's or Father's father's time. If there ever were such images or availability? Just curious. Not really a complaint. More of a suggestion perhaps. Otherwise very nice app
Good idea but a complete waste of time when using 8 year old images on aerial photography! This is SO OUT OF DATE IT'S POINTLESS!!! Why are you using OLD info? Surely you have more upto date images? But of course silly me you want us to PAY for that privilege! Loke you dont get enough of my money already??? The images suck pointless!!!
I'm only an occasional GE user so hadn't seen what appears to be some trophy wife's idiot-son-from-a-previous-marriage's attempt at image sharpening until today. What's next? Degrade it until it's as useless as Google Maps and then offer paid upgrades? Google Search is turning into a teenage pothead half-assed slacker too. Thanks for listening.
The crashing and slow loading... Oh my god google come on. The streets are inconsistent. One second you see a nice looking building, but move up the street and all you get is an abandoned lot. This happens very frequently.
How do you have Google Maps panning and scrolling around flawlessly and yet release your "new" Google Earth app version with the jankiest scrolling ever?! Why on Earth did you add a large deadzone to the pan/scroll control? It makes it slam to life part way through a finger drag. Terrible. If I'm supposed to be effortlessly exploring the map, why do you have such a terrible/non-existent map inertia after a quick flicking motion? Why does the map motion suddenly slam to a stop so quickly after I try to scroll like this? Maps was working fine for eons, yet your Google Earth team releases the most un-buttery smooth control scheme ever for an app that SHOULD have been a no-brainer.
