Mountain View-based search engine giant Google has recently announced that its Google Earth for Android app has reached another milestone in its development status. What Google announced is the release of Google Earth for Android version 1.1. This release follows in the footsteps of version 1.0, which was rolled out to the public about seven months ago. Google Earth 1.1 for Android comes with several new features. The following new features:

Aquatic Goodies
With the latest version of Google Earth for Android you can explore the oceans of the word. The app’s ocean floor mapping feature allows you to view an ocean’s topography using the "Look Around" button to tilt the view.

Furthermore Google Earth 1.1 for Android comes with a new “Explore the Ocean” layer. Thanks to this layer the user has access to hundreds of photos and videos. This media has been provided by more than 100 contributors.

Android 2.2 Goodies
Google Earth 1.1 works with Android 2.1 or later. If you fall in the “later” category and have Android 2.2, you can expect the Google Earth app to offer the following:

- Embedded Flash video snippets. You can find snippets or bubbles of information that include small Flash videos; you can watch these videos on your Android-powered device as long as you have the Flash player installed.
- Use only two fingers to look around and change your viewpoint. This is a bit better than having to use the on-screen button.
- To free up some internal memory space, “Move to SD” is enabled.

Google Earth 1.1 for Android is available for download in the Android Market, so if you want to get it just take out your Android-powered device -> go to “Market” -> select “Search” -> type “Gesture Search” in the search field -> install the app once you find it.

If you don’t want to do all that to get the app, there is a simpler way. Take out your device -> open “Barcode Scanner” -> scan the QR code below -> install Google Earth.
