Google Earth’s iPhone application has just been updated to version 3.0. The changes in the iPhone version are fairly minor (road layers finally available), but the big news is a native version for the iPad. Rather than having to stretch the iPhone view to see it on the larger screen, you now get a beautiful version that looks stunning on your iPad.
As ReadWriteWeb puts it, “it’s almost as if Google Earth was originally designed for the iPad“.
If you’ve used Google Earth on the iPhone, you’ll find the iPad version to be quite similar in terms of features and controls. It’s a beautiful way to use Google Earth, and it’s a must-have for all iPad users.
Neither version supports the “tracks” and “elevation profiles” that were unveiled yesterday with Google Earth 5.2, but they’re expected to be added in a future release.
You can download it from the iTunes Store here.
