Google Earth iPhone App Review

by Joe Johaneman


Opening Screen of Google Earth for the iPhone

Product Category: iPhone App
Developer: Google
Where to Buy: iTunes App Store
Price: Free
System Requirements: iPhone 2G or 3G
Specifications: Google Earth requires 9 megabytes of free space for the application. You should also have some extra space available for caching.


  • The information overlays are informative and interesting;
  • Very responsive over WiFi and 3G;
  • Fun and easy to use


  • Slow under the EDGE network;
  • Information Overlay icons are too small for thick fingers

Google Earth for the iPhone is a fun and mildly addictive application. Its incredibly intuitive interface makes it a joy to use.

  1. Hi,

    I appreciate that you liked the review Joe wrote, but that is our content, and you really should consider reducing this down to a pull quote, one graphic, and a link rather than copying the entire post. I would appreciate it if you edited the post so that it wasn’t an exact replica of what I have on Apple Thoughts.

    Thank you,

  2. If the bugs in google earth are present will patches be available or newer versions.
    If you look at it from a step back say 10 years who would have thought of what is achievable with a phone (iphone)?

  3. I think the Google Earth App is nice. I also like the Beer Dog app, which allows you to target any bars or pubs in your specific area. It also has ratings. Very useful.
