It’s Great! but needs some fixes and updating
I have been using the Google Earth engine for about 2 years now and I have absolutely loved the app, but there are some wacky things to fix. I am writing this review about the new update, as I was scrolling around the small town I live at (Elko, NV) I was very unsatisfied about the new street view update, there were new images of the towns streets but there was so much a mix of images from years back that are still not updated and they make me very uncomfortable and I don’t understand why you can’t update the whole town in the same day. I know 3Ding buildings on Earth can be difficult but why can’t a town of 21,000 people be in 3D? I think it would be nice to have new images of my small town in 3D, the imagery and the time lapses of this app are great and I
Am in love with them but please fix things I mention in this review and try updating more often.
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!
