Google Earth is an app used to view satellite imagery, maps, terrain, and 3D buildings. It is the Android version of the popular Google Earth desktop version.

The app enables you to explore planet Earth through a variety of methods, whether it be zooming in on maps, flying through 3D cities, or viewing a structure from street level. Google Earth allows you to browse layers such as photos or Wikipedia to learn more about a specific place. You can also visit the app's maps gallery to discover interesting maps such as planes currently in flight, beautiful hiking trails, and real-tim earthquakes. If you are new to the app, you can learn about its features and layout

Google Earth is a fun and educational tool for Android users looking to explore our planet. While it is not without its bugs, such as its trouble loading some information from KML and KMZ files, it still is worth downloading if you are a fan of the desktop version of Google Earth.
