Google Earth for the iPhone

by Jon Thompson on October 29, 2008

As I am still in an anti-IT funk I held off posting on the recently released Google Earth iPhone App in order to show solidarity with my protest.  Frank and Stefan have already covered it six ways to Sunday so I’ll just link to all of their good stuff which is way the hell better than anything I could come up with.  Here’s Frank’s Google Earth Blog write-up and here is Stefan’s Ogle Earth write-up.

My quick and dirty take on it is:

1) Don’t miss the overly ostentatious iTunes App store page.  Above is a glimpse of what you can expect.

2) It is exactly like a little, tiny Google Earth in an iPhone.

What I’d like to know is when are we going to see an OSM App for iPhone?  Steve?  Mikel?  Andrew?
