One of the most annoying features about both the PC version and IOS version is the tilt feature. Why o why is there not a switch/button where you can turn this off? I do see that there is a switch to turn off AUTO TILT, but where is the switch to lock out ALL tilting completely ? I constantly have to keep setting the tilt back to perpendicular as it goes off 90 degrrees by itself.
Please please give me a button to totally disable ALL tilting, totally defeats the point of google earth!!
Why does it automatically zoom out while trying to zoom in ??? - WTx !!!!!
Why does it keep rotating on the slightest touch ? Where's the damping to stop that? Why does the map continue to rotate when you have done a two finger map rotation and your fingers have left the screen ??? The app is great that it allows map rotation but it should stop dead still when fingers leave the screen - very clunky !
Why can I not add to "my saved places" ?
Just checked and the Google Maps app for iphone works fine, google should sack the entire Google Earth department! - useless app!
Street view update
I was excited to see street view come back, but oh my God, why a mess they have made of it. It is rubbish compared to the original. You have to place the orange man now to get street view which not a simple as holding your finger o the spot for a moment. It takes ages to load up the view, and then you can't move down the street as easily as you used to. You double tap and end up way further down the road than you wanted! Absolutely useless. You can only pane around, nota lookup and down like other versions. Even simply moving over terrain seems glitchy, taking a number of sweeps to move. I can't believe that they can take something so good and make it so bad that I would rather use someone elses version. After the uproar of it being lost thanks to Apple/Google, now it might as well stay lost until someone gets a rocket up the woopsy and sorts it out!
Street View iPhone 3GS
Re: Street View iPhone 3GS
I asked for Street View and have it. Many thanks to the developer.
Thought it still very slow when panning in on Street View, even on a strong signal and Wifi. Street View needs arrow keys to move around a location.
Panning in from the opening globe still very poor ands improving.
Still an issue with memory being used. So you may want to close down other Apps!.
All-in-all, still worth a download as improved. You'll get a full view of Antarctica as opposed to Google Maps has a limit, worth looking at the many photos on Earth.
