Ratings and Reviews
The Update that changed it all.
Ignore all the negative reviews from a couple of years ago. Back then, the app earth was not very popular because it wasn’t very well implemented in the mobile app. Not anymore. Now the whole app is revalued with the purpose to EXPLORE our home planet. Google Maps is to get around places. Earth has a very unique feature (my personal favorite), in which you press a button and it takes you to a random place on earth so you can find more about it! On top of that, it comes with beautiful animations so it looks like you’re gliding across the surface smooth as butter. You thought this app only had a 2D map view? You can even see the texture from the various buildings and terrain! It’s a beyond incredible masterpiece of an app. Not because it helps you to do things, but to help you get to know this world a little better.
Why does this even exist?
This app can do nothing that would make it worth downloading. Google Maps app covers all it's functions that are actually useful. It also runs out of memory very often and once it even crashed an entire system (iOS 9.1) forcing my iPad to reboot. Not good.
Hard to control
It is almost impossible to navigate, there is no control panel so you have to zoom using fingers...but then it starts to zoom and rotate unpredictably. Needs lots of improvements!
