Really enjoy this app. Sometimes I just click on random places just to explore what certain places look like that I will probably never get to go. However Ive noticed that sometimes an address doesnt load and or its very slow and sits and buffers. I wish google would also update the maps. Before vacation, going to a new restaurant, going over to someones house for the first time, I like to look the place up to get an idea of routes. A lot are out of date. I guess its not this apps purpose but I like using this to get a good idea of where Im going. My address/ neighborhood for example is from 2007. I know its from then because my house and the neighborhood was built in 2007. Its changed a lot since then and the picture is not clear. The aerial view is also different to the street view on some maps. Not the end of the world just wish it was updated. Since they have to drive to create the maps it probably takes awhile. I guess.
It takes a lot of disappointment for me to write reviews but this app is just so flat. Its 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 Im taking but I was mistaken. You cant 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 cant 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 Im 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 Id be able to look at the moon and mars so I feel really gypped now. And yes, even though I didnt pay anything I still feel shortchanged.
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 dont 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 🙁
