GREAT APP BUT NEEDS A FEW THINGS
This is a great app and I'd recommend getting it. The problem is it's not all 3d and I would like you to fix that 'cause my grandfather lives in D.C. but I can't see his house and I want to really bad ( because he's rich and owns a mansion ). Other than that it's GREAT!! But you should add something where you can change the time of day ( night, midnight, early morning (2 am), morning, day, noon, afternoon, evening ) where it changes everything. For example, at day, an office building would look regular, but if you changed it to NIGHT, it would look dimmer and all the lights would be on. If you fixed/added the stuff in my review, it would be a great app. Thank you Google for making another awesome addition to my screen!
Slow, very, very slow updates
“Okay. Guys we got the data in for the whole world! Now we can sit on our butts for years and years and never have to update it”...said the boss at google earth a decade ago.
I know it is free, but I have State Farm road atlases with the picture of a 1953 Buick on the cover that has more up to date maps than Google earth! Those were also free!
Their competition is buying new images like crazy and have current maps/terrain. Perhaps GE just isn’t in the game any more and are letting this program wither and die when more folks like me discover it is full of ancient artifacts instead of a current set of images. I’m in the hinterlands of the fly over in the USA...Denver Colorado. Doubt if the GE staff can spell it let alone find it on their own program.
The images I deal with are from three to seven YEARS old. Streets, many buildings, power lines, pipelines, public facilities have been built and in place for years in the suburban areas of this city.
There are much more current images in Tibet and South America,
Do not use this app if you are expecting to get current images. It is poor for that.
One feature that might be helpful is to have a streamlined method to report obsolete images, or offer the ability to purchase new images of specific areas if Google cannot afford to update your area of interest.
Developer Response ,
Great news! You can now expose the most current imagery available in Google Earth by turning off 3D imagery and revealing the more frequently updated 2D imagery.
Just open the Map Style window within the menu panel and locate the "Turn on 3D Buildings" button. This button will allow you to switch between 3D (where available) and 2D imagery depending on your preference. And since the 2D imagery gets updated more frequently, you may see newer imagery as well as achieve better overall performance when setting the 3D button to "Off". Please feel free to update your review to let us know what you think! Happy Exploring...in 2D and 3D!
Future is Here.
Not only 5-star app for iOS platform, but also for later viewing in Virtual Reality. Using the Insta360 camera, I can upload 360 photospheres to Google Earth/Streetview via the Google Streetview app. In the end, using the Google Earth App to view not just google content, but updated content by google users makes for an incredible end-user experience.
This is also a 5-star review for the Google Earth program available in the Oculus App Store (free). Using a VR platform (e.g., Oculus Rift S), you can literally “walk” down a street with a 360 degree view as you go. Incredible technology. Future is here - check out the app in virtual reality if you have the opportunity.
