What's New in Version 9.1.8
See the world through another's eyes with the new Photos layer
The new Photos layer—available from the menu—enables you to explore user-contributed photos from every corner of the globe, right on the map.
Updates added additions doesn't make the previous super great App better.
Now it's not a even a good App. I super enjoyed the app and would use it to especially look at areas mentioned in the News which I may not have had a clue to where on earth it was (literally). I also liked zooming in and seeing what the places looked like.
However I don't enjoy it after the update. The image isn't nearly as clear. I don't need all the travel type info nor highlights. I'm most likely looking at the area because I've already been informed of information which makes the area a interest to me. This added informational addition just causes clutter and gets in the way. Please revert back to the previous Google Earth.
Among other improvements, Google has amped up the modeling to the point where the detail is kinda scary. I'm glad their motto is do no evil. You can count the tomatoes on each of the plants in my backyard but please don't come and take them!
Photos are gone
Latest version does not display photos. The help section says to go to settings and click on show photos, but that's not there. Photos were what I enjoyed the most, especially of small Pacific Islands. Perhaps in next update?
