Google launched Google Earth back in 2005, and since then they have been working to make it available for Internet-enabled device. They want it to be carried easily in our pockets.

Today, they announced the release of Google Earth for iPhone and iPod Touch. With just a swipe of your finger you can fly from Peoria to Paris to Papua New Guinea, or anywhere in between with a collection of 8 million Panoramio photos.

It also lets you zoom in with a double tap, or zoom out with two fingers. Some of its features include:

  • 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

You shouldn’t go for its size as it brings all the power of Google Earth to the palm of your hand, including all of the same global imagery and 3D terrain.

Google Earth for iPhone and iPod Touch is available in 18 languages and 22 countries which can be downloaded from the iTunes App Store.
