Amazing Google Earth is probably the most incredible FREE app out there. The world at your fingertips. Christopher Columbus would have loved it. Just like our planet, this is an ongoing project. To those who gave bad reviews - get a new device, as it's probably your phone that sucks. This app is amazing.
Horrible I don't know why I even wasted the time. App is crap. Can't do anything with this. Its useless. It crashes every 30 seconds! Thank god its free. I can't imagine paying for such a frustrating service. If someone can help fix the issues with this, that would be helpful. But I'm not expecting it.
Innovation required! So I was talking to the local Librarian the other day (they'd been let go recently by their boss, so they're just walking around town, talking to anyone.) about this Earth program, and I said "Hey, this is all stored in 3d, right? So why can't someone just port the files to a vr compatible system? It doesn't have to be world wide, just maybe a small area or a single point. I mean, they're already able to steam vr video on YouTube, so how hard can it be? (I know that this in reality would actually be hard.)
Rubbish on Android Crashes every 30 seconds, street view out of date by at least 4 years. Works better on PC.
Kml support is STILL broken after update. I save Kml in Google Earth desktop, upload to drive. Open earth android, load Kml from Google Drive and it either does nothing or shows a blue dot. Was working before last update. Have tried clearing cache, app data. Tried multiple kml,kmz files nothing helps.
Installed a few days ago. Keeps crashing when I open it. I updated it today and still crashes. I love Google Earth but this is so frustrating. Please fix the bugs please.
