Google Earth for iPhone…wow

Frankly, we don’t know why we didn’t see this coming.  The iPhone has a pretty solid mobile 3D chip, loads of caching space, GPS and an awesome touch interface.  All perfect for a mobile version of Google Earth. 

The app is pretty solid but a little clunky to start up.  It does include Panaramio pictures, Wikipedia entries that are geotagged and bunch of other nice stuff.  We do get a pretty consistant crash when we try to move after a GPS lookup – your mileage may vary.
