Ratings and Reviews
Whoa! What happened??!!
Although I’ve noticed a few bad ratings for this app, I was actually not having to much trouble using Google Earth on my IPad. Ya, a little crash here and there but nothing to cry about. It was still helpful.
Then, out of nowhere, just a couple weeks ago, ALL STREETS and ALL RESTAURANTS/SHOPS were deleted from the mapping.... everywhere....GONE! 4 years of using this app with any semblance of detail....eliminated. And YES, I could find a restaurant in the middle of Nowhere, USA and click on it and actually see shared photos.
That has been completely wiped out! Street names are gone! What is the point of this apps existence now? To stare at an abandoned 3D city model... a dead, non-descript planet? Awesome. Bye Google App. It was nice while it lasted!
UPDATE (April 13th): Okay! Time for an update! While updating software on my IPad, somehow, almost magically, my Google Earth app had switched off the “view everything” option on the app. Very weird! It completely threw me off and caught me offguard. But, I caught the weirdness and righted everything... so I’m increasing the rating to 4 stars. A great app that probably should be more updated, but I still enjoy it.😁
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.
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.
