Good news for all the iPhone users out there that like to use Google Earth: the Mountain View-based search engine giant has released version 2.0 of Google Earth for iPhone and iPod Touch. The Google developed application is already a big hit in the App Store – with the enhancements v. 2.0 brings to the table, we can only expect it to become even more popular.

“Just over one year ago, we unveiled Google Earth for the iPhone and iPod touch. Google Earth quickly became one of the most popular applications in the App Store, and after only six months, was the second most-downloaded free application overall. Today, we're proud to announce version 2.0 of Google Earth for iPhone. We've added some exciting new features,” announced Product Manager with Google Earth, Peter Birch.


Let’s see what exciting new features are in Google Earth 2.0 for iPhone and iPod Touch:

Enhanced Map Viewing Options

iPhone users can now view the map they or their friends have created thanks to the My Maps interface. Let’s say you are logged into your Google Earth account and you are using your desktop computer to view some maps. Simply click Save to My Maps, then take out your iPhone, launch the Google Earth app, log into your account and view the map you just saved.

Browse Locations, Photos and Businesses with Ease

Google Earth lets you easily view photos, Wikipedia articles and all sorts of other useful details about a specific geographical location. Google Earth 2.0 for iPhone takes this ease of use to the next level. Peter Birch explains: “when you touch an icon, a small glow appears under your finger to let you know which icon you have picked. If your finger touches more than one icon, you'll be taken to a list of all icons, so you can select the one you are interested in.”

Extended Language Support

Google Earth 2.0 provides support for a total of 31 languages. These languages are: English (U.S), English (UK), French (France), German, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Danish, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, Korean, Japanese, Russian, Polish, Turkish, Ukrainian, Arabic, Thai, Czech, Greek, Hebrew, Indonesian, Malaysian, Romanian, Slovak, and Croatian.
Please note that the Google Earth app used to provide support for only 18 languages, so this is a significant improvement.

If you would like to get Google Earth 2.0 for iPhone and iPod Touch, you can grab it straight from the App Store
