This app used to be so much better, but of course they had to make it worse with an update. Now, the app's UI is less space efficient, with half the screen taken up by "your projects" on every startup. Worse, the app is now a lot slower. It used to load the maps in just a couple seconds, but now it can take over a minute even on good Internet, and there is no visual improvement. 5* -> 3*. Please bring back the old version.

New version of app allows saving waypoints! However I could not put waypoints into folders or export them, to email to someone for example. The interface is a little awkward. The backend at Google is not good. Just looking at my neighborhood, little mini libraries are there but not the Los Angeles Public Libraries. Searching for library found small branch libraries but not the large Regional Branch. The Windows Earth app really went downhill, mountains appear flat. The mobile apps have 3D still.

The update is a fail. Features such as altitude are no longer there, replaced by a "projects" interface that makes navigation more difficult and takes up screen space. The projects feature is something I do not want, but it is featured so prominently that it's practically taken over the app. So, to summarize, they have taken away features that I liked and forced some new feature that I hate and cannot remove. This is unfortunately typical for the developers at Google these days. Desperation.
