iPhone Gets Google Earth Applications
Article by George Norman

It seems that Apple and Google did not turn a deaf ear to all the iPhone users that were complaining that the hand held device does not have a Google Earth app. I guess all these users will have to find something else to complain about (perhaps the fact that an unlocked version of the iPhone is not yet available), because as of today the iPhone finally has just such an app.

The Google development team went to great lengths when coming up with this new piece of software, and as they say, it now lets you “carry the Earth around in your pocket.” Even though the iPhone's size is relatively small compared to a desktop computer and even a laptop, the application features the same 3D and global imagery. This is to say that you will get the same level of imagery detail, just that you will get it on a rather small hand held device, rather than a bulky PC.

Here is what you can expect to get from the Google Earth iPhone app:
- Simply tilt the phone to get a landscape view of mountainous regions.
- You will get access to Panoramio's multi-million pictures as well as Wikipedia geo-located articles.
- Every time you wish to return to your current location, just hit the “My Location” button.
- Google Local Search gives you the option to look for information regarding all sorts of locations.

The thing that impresses me the most about this software application (and I do believe it will impress you too) is the manner in which it uses the iPhone's screen. The screen is after all one of the most enticing features of the device.

The Google Earth app supports 18 different languages and is available for download in 22 countries around the world. The application does not work solely on iPhones - it also works on iPod touch.
