Google Earth Ipad
An iPad is all about apps and Google’s apps can’t miss from the mix. Apple has its own interesting devices, reliable operating systems and worthy apps, but Google has built a name on the market and it’s not doing a bad job living up to that name.
Evidence that Google is not sleeping while Apple releases new versions of its devices is Google Earth for iPad that became available soon after the release of the device. Even if the version for the iPad doesn’t come with any amazing improvements like completely new features or a completely different interface, the iPad’s high resolution screen makes the experience completely new and amazing even for those that have already used Google Earth on another device.
Google Earth is an app dedicated not to shops or man made locations like Google Maps but to our beloved planet. That’s how it manages to provide detailed information about landmarks and all our globe’s countries. The browsing is so fast that you almost feel like the app is connected to satellites. This is also the effect of the easy to use interface that includes a set of buttons that allow you to easily search details about almost any location on the globe. You can also choose the type of details you are interested in: you might be looking for the businesses in the area, for Wikipedia entries about the location or about information regarding roads if you are planning a journey.
However, these details will lose importance when your eyes will meet the maps displayed by Google Earth and improved by your iPad’s quality screen. You will be amazed by the level of details and by the loading speed that’s provided by the A4 processor of the iPad. This processor also makes possible the display of animations and the use of a responsive menu system that allows you to easily zoom and rotate the image in order to get a better look. Even if you don’t have the fastest Wi-Fi connection available you will still receive answers to your requests in real time.
However, you shouldn’t expect to enjoy all the features provided by the desktop version of the app. I know you would have loved to see 3D buildings displayed on your iPad, but both Google and Apple need to put in some hours of work in order to improve one the quality of the software’s mobile version and the other the capabilities of the hardware available. But even without these features, this app deserves high marks, so visit the App Store and download it for free.
