We’re all getting so use to these new apps like Star Walk and The Night Sky that let us see the sky and everything that’s in it at any given point in time. Honestly, both of these apps are absolutely incredible little tools that allow us to see everything God created in a way that we couldn’t see unless we were astronauts! So yes, I do think we’re somewhat spoiled when it comes to technology and everything we have at the tip of our fingers! Alright. So you’re used to the fact that you can see the sky and our planets? What about earth? What if you could see wherever you wanted on earth with just the swipe of your finger? Well, now you can with Google Earth. It’s going to blow you away! If you’re like me and already impressed with the sky apps I’ve listed above, you’ll go crazy over Google Earth. The app even has a tour guide that can be used simply by swiping the tab at the bottom of your screen. It will bring up a selection of virtual tours from around the planet!
Google Earth by Google Inc is a travel app that basically lets you FLY AROUND THE PLANET just by swiping your finger on your iPhone. I made the “fly around the planet” all caps, just incase you’re not taking this app and what it can do seriously enough! Not only can you see the national monuments, but you can even visit your old high school, the home you lived in when you were little or even your ex-boyfriends work place! LOL Search for a location by country, state, city AND even address! I put in the address to my parents house, and I could see every detail in the yard! Google Earth is simply incredible. It’s an app like no other.
iTunes lists Google Earth’s features as such:
- Tour guide: Explore places you never thought to search for with new tours of your favorite cities, historic landmarks and natural wonders.
- 3D imagery: Take flight above entire cities in 3D. Get started with Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Geneva or Rome and look for new additions in the coming weeks. Available for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later.
