Google launches Google Earth for iPhone
Google, today, announced their popular Google Earth application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.

The application allows the user to browse the 'world' in 3D, matching the experience of viewing the map on a desktop computer. Google Earth for the iPhone also features 8 million Panoramio photos and also allows the user to read various Wikipedia articles for different locations. A new view has also been added. This can be accessed by tilting the iPhone/iPod Touch and while doing so, the user is able to see a wider scope of the map displayed.

The integration of Google Maps has also taken place to an extent. One is able to jump to their current location and can utilize the search option to locate various businesses, etc.

It is available for free trough the iTunes's App Store.

I saw an Apple Rep using this Google Earth on his iPhone and let me tell you. This app is not very useful but dont get me wrong it is cool. I find Google Maps more useful because Google Earth is very slow and the only feature that one get is 3D rotating of the map and that is it. Once again it is very slow. So, my choice is Google Maps!!!
