I am a heavy user of google earth which I use a lot for my work, so it is with much joy that I found out it has been released for mobile devices. Some things need to be improved though. I notice that many times when zooming in, the view will suddenly zoom out. It seems that the controls are a bit too sensitive. Perhaps something can be done about it. Cheers
Nice, but uses A LOT of battery power!!!
Some of the cities are really impressive, love the experience. But my battery percentage drop a lot while using it, like from 20% to 6% in 3mins! It's just ridiculous! Just try to use it when you are near a charging point, you should do just fine.
Good but have room for improvements
Overall a good app. However, Google can add in some more functions which are currently found in the Google Earth PC version, such as moon, Mars, sunset and sunrise, weather, ruler, etc. also, the 3D building only include USA and Canada. There are no 3Ds outside USA! In PC version 3D has North America, South America, Japan, Singapore Hong Kong Europe
