    Awesome app, just found how to get a picture from it when I want to explore new places to hike, prospect, explore, metal detect & even a ghost town not too far from me. Exploring from space off the beaten path of others is almost as much fun as actually doing it in person. Lots of stuff to find, learn and do, even for the social butterflies out there. Have fun and good luck.

    Baby, I love you, but your controls suck. After carefully alligning the picture just the way I want it, the image always swims a little after I take my finger off the screen. Then, when I go to move it, I have to "break" it from its locked position by jarring the image, meaning I then have to resize and reset it. I would prefer the movement controls to work like they do in Maps. There also seems to be no way to save a postcard other than to text yourself and save it thru sms.

  • 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 :(

    Excellent app. Works nearly as good as on my desktop. Why 'nearly'? Because a mobile phone's diminutive, touch-maneuvered screen is SO CLUMSY! The ease of moving around on a big desktop screen is simply never going to happen on a mobile. Still Google Earth in your palms, wherever you go, is an incredible achievement today, thanks to its inventors and developers, and it's only getting better and better! Keep it up! 👍😊

  • 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

  • Not Even Basic App Comforts (2020 iPad Pro) May 19, 2020

    By somethingcheesy
    It takes a lot of disappointment for me to write reviews but this app is just so flat. It’s like they took what they were in the process of developing years ago and just threw it up without even looking at it for a quick review. I am terrible at geography and thought this would help me with a class I’m taking but I was mistaken. You can’t adjust any type of visual settings so if you zoom too far in on, say, China, you get a million different location names in English and Chinese and you can’t even see the land under all the text. Also, it would be really enjoyable (and easier on my old lady eyes) to be able to make borders bold or different colors or even cut out a region to view it individually. It is absolutely impossible to tell one country/state from the next with the impossibly thin tan line separating everything that, oh yea, is the same color that is used for most of the landscape. What a mess. Overall really great concept but what I’m gathering from other reviews, the app particularly for iPad is super low quality compared to others. I now know that if I had a desktop I’d be able to look at the moon and mars so I feel really gypped now. And yes, even though I didn’t pay anything I still feel shortchanged.

    Google stays years behind current geomapping and satellite accuracy. The maps on Google's earth and map apps do not update regularly with new roads, street view, geolocation, or satellite view. The information available to consumers is antiquated and always out dated. This has been the main problem for over a decade! To this end, android users would be better served to have the option to have devices that don't require Google services.

    This is app is rather fun and addicting!! Very interesting. Everyone saying that it may takes up to 5 years to update every single viewpoint and that not every country or even town has 3d or street view need to understand that the world is a big place and they can only get to big nature areas and DECENTLtowns and cities, also some countries have privacy issues that wouldn't let us get all those pictures. However, since a few weeks ago, whenever I open the app I get a black frozen screen. Plz fix

    Love the concept, but i don't understand why so much is blocked out. It's clear there are many, if not most, place on a vast scale, covered by blank scape photos. Clearly defined border deception and color flaw are visible. More than 75% if the maps surface , that I've explored, yields no usage considering its false and empty information. Hopefully at some point the actual earth surface can be seen all of the way, obviously excluding sensitive governed facilities to be practical.

    “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.

  • 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)

  • GREAT APP BUT NEEDS A FEW THINGS Jan 25, 2020

    By fdasscgar
    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!

  • 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 :)

  • Really great! Jan 3, 2021

    By Christofer Williams
    Oh, man. I use this app far more than I’d like to admit. When I’m planning out mountaineering routes and backcountry ski trips, Google Earth proves shockingly useful. I would never use Google Earth in place of a detailed topo map, but there’s something revelatory about being able to fly around a 3-D image of your objective and view it from different angles. In fact, it’s this usefulness that makes me occasionally frustrated with it. The reliance on data signal makes it an unreliable friend in the backcountry. I wish (like with Google Maps) there were some way to save certain areas to my phone so that I could consult a 3-D rendering of the terrain in which I’m currently route-finding, rather than just taking a ton of screenshots.

    Thank you for your google earth map, But when you first introduced google earth back in the day it worked excellent on a cell phone, after you made changes it been for years always malfunctioning, blurry, and distorted, pieces of earth not showing and so forth, sometimes it good working. I will install again, i always uninstall then wait awhile to see if you've improved it with a good update. Installing it again. Well here goes. To be continued later with a updated review. Update, much better.

  • 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. 🙃

    The app is really good! I like how you can take a closer view of the area you want to see! But the problem is some creepy and unusual things have been found on the camera , like nonhuman figures, dolls etc . I dont know if all those are true and its really unusual. But there are also funny things like a man stuck in the toilet 😳😂😂. Overall really great! Thank you for such a great app

  • 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
