When Google first launched Google Earth, you pretty much needed a cutting-edge PC in order to power it. My, how far it’s come! Today, Google has announced it has managed to stuff Google Earth into an iPhone/iPod Touch application–which you can download for free!

Here’s what you can do with Google Earth on your iCandy iPhone:

  • Tilt your iPhone to adjust your view to see mountainous terrain
  • View the Panoramio layer and browse the millions of geo-located photos from around the world
  • View geo-located Wikipedia articles
  • Use the ‘Location’ feature to fly to your current location
  • Search for cities, places and business around the globe with Google Local Search

It’s free, so you have no excuse for trying it out. If you’re still not sure if it’s worth the “install” click you’d have to sacrifice, you can check out the video below:

PS. This post comes via the Admirals Club at LAX. I still have about 12 more hours of traveling today, but will be back up to speed tomorrow. :-)

    I have tried out here and think that I will pass it for the moment. Thanks. I must however say that I am quite tempted to download it, once I get myself a proper handset.

    The Google eart feature is amazing. I wonder how they have it tied into their new Google phone?

    I was pondering whether or not to buy the iphone. Google earth is a definite plus.

    I saw that application and it looks great. I find it ironic that Google hasn’t released this for their GPhone yet. I wonder when they will release it.

    It was about time to get this on iPhone. Actually it seems to move even faster on iPhone than on my PC.
