Google today introduce 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. You can even browse any of the 8 million Panoramio photos or read Wikipedia articles.

With Google Earth for iPhone, you can:

• 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

Available at the App store

Can you tell the spokesperson is reading from cue cards? :)

Aside from that, if you have the right data plan, Google Earth will be terrific to find your way or get lost depending on your travel objectives.

This is an impressive application when you first see and play with it but after further use, I found it pretty slow and somewhat difficult to use.

I like the Built-in Google map application in my iPod Touch but I think I will strictly use Google Earth on my desktop.

I would agree.

It's a very cool app, but it's usefulness is somewhat limited. I actually placed its icon with my games on my iPhone.

Seems a little too hefty or bloated an app for this platform.

Built-in Maps it is. Can't wait to see if Tom Tom or some other GPS company will ever release Nav software for the iPhone. I'd pay good money for that.
