  • Nice view of the world with a touch of a button May 6, 2020

    By Dugbuynjmede
    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 A lot are out of date.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.

    Oh my god this is definitely one of my favorite apps, i just love playing around with this and going to all these locations. I find this app as a really fun game! Even if you dont agree its a game. I really do like the pc version better of google earth but it is really great. If you have a pc though definitely get it on there. But if you love exploring and having a great time definitely check out this game.🌎

  • Nice need a few Stuff tho Jun 11, 2020

    By Tania star
    You see I like google earth and all but they need to have 3D at big cities like Moscow or Shanghai. What’s wrong with them? New York City is a big place but is less populated then the ones I mention. Also why are you covering some spots in the North and South Pole. In Greenland you can barely see a thing. In Siberia (which is in Russia of course) you can see trees and stuff but some stuff are blurry! Why??? I’m not saying ur keeping a secret from us but that’s pretty suspicious. You really need to change that. But really you should! Also one more thing. Why do you want to know where we live? That’s really creepy! I mean really creepy!!! I don’t want no one to know where I live (except my relatives of course). But no one else unless there my friends. That’s just really creepy dude! You should really change that! And you should do that before hackers know where you live and start doing bad stuff to you. I love this app and all but you should change stuff. Anyways I hope you change everything bad and have a good day. Bye!

  • Detail Update Please Nov 30, 2019

    By CrystalCafe!
    Ive been a fan of google earth for a long time now. I recall that the first images used to allow the bottom of the ocean exploration with a smooth transition from land to sea. With the new updates and imagery, a lot of detail has been removed. I used to remember looking at land masses and seeing the trees and roads but the current images are now blurry blobs. Also the area surrounding and encompassing Antarctica is severely pathetic. We the people want the details and the Truth. Why is it that there are photoshop cuts and cloud clips, that are covering up detail of the landscape? Please fire the photoshop team and tell it like it is. What good is exploring the planet in virtual format if all you get is blurred images to hide those detail? I don’t use Google Earth much any more because it is a joke now. It makes me sad that all the big corporations want to keep people in the dark, never sharing what they find. Who are you to make that judgment on all of the population. What gives you the rite to hide valuable discoveries from us? And why? It just makes me sad that you were not raised with the truth and so you find ways to cover it up :(

    Well I'd have to say that they are really updated on the environment, although the images are not like a thousand and eighty pixels so what, as far as you'd see the road, the junctions and landmarks to where you're going then that's awesome. I leave them with a 4 star rating.

    Just like many other ppl have said, I also use GE as my go to map. Whether its to go on a virtual vaca to a random island in the middle of the ocean or just to take a "stroll" in my neck of the woods, its always been my favorite interactive map. But I'm afraid thats all about to change if you guys don't fix the crashing prob that I've been experiencing & among many other people have as well. First I thought maybe my space was low, so I went through some old apps & uninstalled them. But, no dice!

  • Slow, very, very slow updates Apr 23, 2018

    By Krazo1
    “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.

    Looked good at first but between the search function returning an error message half the time and the fact that the whole app just randomly crashes every few minutes it's not worth bothering with quite frankly. Uninstalled.

    This is an excellent app. I have had it for a few years now and it is always evolving. I have found it very helpful to locate places I'm going to by being able to actually see landmarks close to the destination. Thanks again for Google Earth.

    This app was useful but I won't be using this app very oftenly. It's great and fun but has some minor issues like for instance, how long it loads and how old it is. I will give this 5 star because it's made by google. Thanks for the app. You just press read more

  • Need a laugh? read me! Sep 30, 2020

    By wi-jopo
    While I was in HS about 15 years ago (before there was a live earth feed). I told my friend in computer class that Google Earth was live. I told her to go outside and wave to the sky and I would wave back, being the small charter school for arts that it was with only about 250 kinds in 9-12 combined it was small enough for me to be able to get away with locking her out..... Of, the entire school. About a solid 40 minutes later she comes into class looking like she has been threw the mill hair everywhere, sweating, panting you name it. I don’t remember how she got in, but what I do remember this is a cherished memory. Especially the lab teachers face when she explained what took her so long. Thanks google earth! You were part of creating a happy and forever memory. 5 stars just because you rock. (No pun intended)

  • Sorry to say but.. a few kinks.. Jul 7, 2020

    By sqash27
    So I had and deleted one and a half year ago because I didn’t rlly think I would need it. So earlier yesterday ( today’s yesterday) I was getting bored and so I got this app again and I had to get the older version. So idk if that is related to this but.. every time I try to “ walk “ in the streets it lets me go little ways but then it stops working and takes me to my home screen :( Is it related to old version of google earth or maybe because I don’t have latest version of iPad? Could it be because my iPad is like five years old or is it just something that needs a bug fix update? Or can you not fix? I totally understand if you cannot fix though because I know you all work hard reading reviews and trying to fix any problems anyone has. Thx for all your hard work guys! Me appreciates it. Sincerely, INFO UNAVAILABLE

  • Hey I just wanna say something about this app Jun 23, 2020

    By AngryBirds09
    Unfortunately people lately have been saying there’s many glitches and strange things found on this app (and I agree) but since then there hasn’t been a SINGLE glitch or bug or strange thing that I have ever seen on this app known as google earth or google maps (whatever) but I just don’t understand what the point of these bugs and glitches are. Many people have found these kinds of bugs but I just don’t get where they came from and why this app has a lot of bugs and glitches. I don’t Know maybe something really is wrong with this app. Well good thing those glitches are fixed because I would be terrified if I saw a glitch. Because usually bugs and glitches on this App are usually very disturbing and I agree with them. Otherwise this app is great and I hope u like it too :)

  • Long time fan, needs technical improvement May 5, 2020

    By ellentaco33
    This app is great and the measuring tool in particular makes it easy for me to plan new running routes. However lately it’s been challenging to use the app because of some recurring technical issues. Often the app crashes after less than five minutes of use and continues to crash every time I open the app. I’ve restarted my iPad and tried a few other troubleshooting things but the crashing still happens about 50% of the time. The street view feature is great! Despite the issues I would still recommend this app and continue to use it, but it would be really good if the issues would be fixed.

  • Fix the time differences Aug 31, 2020

    By Confederate son
    I’ve always LOVED this app. Being able to explore places I’ve always wanted to go without having to get off the couch. But, I’ve noticed a problem and to be completely honest I can’t seem to find a reason why the people in charge can’t or won’t fix these problems. First problem is the blurred areas. Certain places I’ve looked at in the past were completely clear and I was always able to zoom in almost to the point of being able to read street signs. Now y’all have started blurring our a LOT of different details and to be honest it makes the app a lot less appealing and more useless than useful. Problem #2. The seasonal overlapping... now this happens on my GPS when I use it with satellite overlay. BUT, once I’ve zoomed in to a certain point it all clears up and the picture is as it should be according to the season. I’m a HUGE history fanatic so I’m constantly looking for ruins and remnants of the past in places most people can easily get to. But when I start noticing that the picture refuses to clear up and focus and the fine and important details are now blurred. It makes me ask why. Which also causes me to look for answers. Which has also given me no other choice but to contact certain people to hack into certain satellites so I can get the answers i need. 🙃

  • Will not load/open Mar 26, 2020

    By SHBSMP
    Using an iPad Pro google earth is stuck on the welcome screen and does not go any further. Clicked on the app support tab in the App Store and it takes you to a help forum for windows google earth Pro help. Useless for apple products. Really a shame googles so disorganized or just doesn’t care about low revenue users UPDATE: several hours later the app loaded as expected. Program ran fine, would be nice to have current or near current maps and photos, most data I saw was more than 3 yrs old. I’m thinking the startup/loading issue was not an app problem but a temporary google server issue they resolved. Still no troubleshooting info for Apple mobile users (at least none I could find) even with the issues, Google Earth is the best (free) global mapping app money can buy for the iPhone/iPad.

  • Looks Awful Aug 20, 2020

    By Packyboi
    I think what this app is doing is really cool with the whole see different places thing which is why I’m giving this 2 stars instead of 1. It looks horrendous, unless you are using street view, everything looks terrible, it looks like someone threw up after eating Taco Bell. And most of the time things you want to view aren’t on the street so you can’t even use street view. In my neighborhood I wanted to look at my school because it was remodeled in 2012 and I started going there in 2013 so I never got to see what it looked like before. My neighborhood pictures were from 2011 so the school wasn’t remodeled yet. So I went and looked and because it’s a school, there was no street view for what I wanted to see. All you could see was the front of the school. So I tried zooming in and low and behold. It looked so terrible. Don’t get this app
