Ratings and Reviews
Nice view of the world with a touch of a button
Really enjoy this app. Sometimes I just click on random places just to explore what certain places look like that I will probably never get to go. However I’ve noticed that sometimes an address doesn’t load and or it’s very slow and sits and buffers. I wish google would also update the maps. Before vacation, going to a new restaurant, going over to someones house for the first time, I like to look the place up to get an idea of routes. A lot are out of date. I guess it’s not this app’s purpose but I like using this to get a good idea of where I’m going. My address/ neighborhood for example is from 2007. I know it’s from then because my house and the neighborhood was built in 2007. It’s changed a lot since then and the picture is not clear. The aerial view is also different to the street view on some maps. Not the end of the world just wish it was updated. Since they have to drive to create the maps it probably takes awhile. I guess.
Not Even Basic App Comforts (2020 iPad Pro)
It takes a lot of disappointment for me to write reviews but this app is just so flat. It’s like they took what they were in the process of developing years ago and just threw it up without even looking at it for a quick review. I am terrible at geography and thought this would help me with a class I’m taking but I was mistaken. You can’t adjust any type of visual settings so if you zoom too far in on, say, China, you get a million different location names in English and Chinese and you can’t even see the land under all the text. Also, it would be really enjoyable (and easier on my old lady eyes) to be able to make borders bold or different colors or even cut out a region to view it individually. It is absolutely impossible to tell one country/state from the next with the impossibly thin tan line separating everything that, oh yea, is the same color that is used for most of the landscape. What a mess.
Overall really great concept but what I’m gathering from other reviews, the app particularly for iPad is super low quality compared to others. I now know that if I had a desktop I’d be able to look at the moon and mars so I feel really gypped now. And yes, even though I didn’t pay anything I still feel shortchanged.
Recommended for geography nerds
This is a great app and I'd recommend getting it. Unfortunately, the whole world isn't 3d, but that makes sense for multiple reasons. For one, most of the non-3d areas are random countryside's or small towns, which makes sense, as it would take so much effort to turn a tiny little town in the middle of Canada to 3d, and it's not worth it. For two, places like China, Russia, and North Korea obviously aren't 3d because those countries dont give us permission to analyze there country at every angle thousands of times (for good reason). Overall, it's amazing, and I fully recommend it to any geography or history nerd.
One thing that would be cool is adding a function where you could change the time of day. For example, you could set it to midnight setting, and everything would be dark and windows would be glowing. I don't know how the Google satellites work, so it might not even be possible to add a day/night setting with our current technology.
Anyway, that's my review!
