Google has released a new version of its Google Earth application for the iPhone and iPod touch. According to the app’s release notes, it offers the same global satellite and aerial imagery available in the desktop versions of Google Earth. The app employs a multi-touch interface to navigate the virtual globe, with the ability to tilt the device to adjust the view, view geo-located Wikipedia articles, use the location feature to move to the user’s current location, and search for different destinations worldwide. Google Earth for iPhone and iPod touch is a free download from the App Store, and is available now.

Yes it is, do a search for “google” in the iTunes store (or the app store on the iPhone) and you’ll find it. I got it this morning and I’m in the UK.

Well I’m in New Zealand and it’s not available here.

And thank you for pointing out the obvious; I know how to use search.

I imagine when 2.2 comes out and this gets an update or two, it will be much better.
All things considered, it won’t replace my NĂ¼vi 660 yet, but it’s not bad for a phone ;)
