Create your own Google Earth app with Smarturbia

Back in 2011 we told you about youbeQ, an innovate “3D social network” from the iNovmapping team.  They’ve now developed a new app called Smarturbia, which they consider to be the gaming side of the youbeQ platform.

In their words:

Smarturbia is a Web and Mobile (Android) crowd sourced concept. In it we can explore the world as a game in our Desktop or Smartphone having at the same time the opportunity to know better the history and culture of those places, what might become a great touristic booster, promoting destinations and companies from this sector. Since the release of the app until now, users have already travelled further than 290 thousand miles, more than enough to go from Earth to Moon.

The platform uses the Google Earth/Maps API and allows users to build their own apps with their toolkit. Inside of your app, you can customize a variety of elements, such as the color of your vehicle or the image in your Taxi’s plaque.

You can learn more about it at, or download their app from Google Play.
