I hate this app 1/5
By Izzy Columbus
Outdated images 2/5
The images when you look up home addresses are way outdated. I am using this to help look at properties as we would like to move however when we go visit the property’s and then I look them up to review them the imagery on Google Earth looks like the property did 4-6 years ago. Would be a better app if it was kept updated
Turn off 3d buildings 1/5
You can’t even see the map with that crap
Update needed 2/5
Some places have been updated, but some places are 4 years ago, (nov/18/2017)
I like the Earth 5/5
I probably won’t use this app
But I am keeping it on my phone
Won't even open. 1/5
Downloaded the app four times. I couldn't even get it to open after downloading.
There we go 4/5
Less glitches,lag, and freezing.Nice google!Way more better,can’t wait to see the next updates
Another crapapp 1/5
I just upgraded my iPhone and even though I did a backup old phone, restore to new phone, Google Earth was THE ONLY app that auto-updated (I have that turned off) Can anyone say illegally embedded software???
The long/lat coordinates are too small to be useful... way to go, google... What market survey thought THAT would be helpful... morons.
And - no one wants, or needs to see developer responses, justifying their poor programming skills, so don't even bother...
The updated graphics remind me of ColecoVision, from the late 1970's. 3D is distorted, and 2D is iffy...
Fix your software, listen to consumer feedback, and maybe you'll get better reviews.

Can’t do half of what it used to do. Crashes. All about selling stuff now. Such a shame.
Bring back Wikipedia icons 5/5
I’m giving a 5-star because it has always been my favorite satellite app, the end. That said, I really miss the Wikipedia icons in the previous versions. Please bring them back! Thank you.
Add time travel in the next t version please 5/5
I would really like to travel back in time to see what earth was like in the old days
Wow this is the coolest app on my phone 5/5
Bring back clean 2D !! 2/5
Time to update this old data and please bring back the normal 2D view. Half the detail is lost with the "new 2D " view.
.kmz files crash the app. 2/5
By Engineer Josh
Do not update to version 9.X if you use these files. Had no issues with version 8.X.
I like the update since the version 9.0.78 4/5
I like the update since the version 9.0.78 but it still needs some things such as layers. Like satellite view is cool almost all the time but in traffic mode on other maps has its benefits cause I the roads and rivers/lakes are readily labeled. And that’s pretty much my only issue, I love the pics mode where u can see pics other ppl have posted... so ATTENTION DEVELOPERS! Layers of viewing ability would be a nice addition!
No more 'Ground Level View' 1/5
With this forced upgrade, you're unable to zoom in and view at ground level. That was my favorite feature and helped with planning my photographic shoots. This isn't an upgrade, it's a downgrade.
Updated 19/9/2017: still no ground level view option.
Updated 11/7/2017: The app went from terrible to unusable. The developers still refuse to include 'ground level view' and within the first 10 seconds of using the app, it crashed. Tried again, crashed. Reinstalled the app, crashed. Why is it so difficult to provide the user a similar desktop experience?
See the world 4/5
By The Joelest
A very cool looking app. If you want to feel small on this planet, this will do it. Not great for directions, or many practical uses, just entertainment.
Just Terrible and stupid 1/5
By Disgruntled User Bob
Awful. Opened it to London and it goes to it alright but then they cover it with so many balloons that it covers the screen. I imagine those balloons are paid advertisements.
From good to bad 1/5
By Buds Only Girl
New update does not include street names, no more actual street views..only broken disconnected images (pictures). No more fun! A waste of my time now. I enjoyed the older version much better. I’ll probably delete this app soon. Will give you reasonable time to fix the problems.
It good but 5/5
It ok but it need a update so I can’t take a video of it I love it you can sse a lot of things and no ads! I catlancemc from ROBLOX bye
TERRIBLY USELESS! 1/5
If I could give no stars I would. This app was great before the latest update. Now it is useless inaccurate unreliable and extremely difficult to use in the field. Now you have to constantly require your location. Before it would automatically. I load kmz files on To it to follow property boundaries and other reference points while in the woods. Now I'm just walking in circles wasting time due to all above mentioned rant. Get rid of the update and go back to how it once was.
By Fire alarm fan
This is awesome! DOWNLOAD THIS NOW! That’s all I need to say...
Add the Flight Simulator 4/5
I love google earth and the flight simulator is one of my favorite features.
If you could add the flight simulator to this mobile version of google earth that would be great. Thanks!
Clean and fast! 5/5
By Jonathan Hernandez-Orozco
The "Knowledge cards" are relevant, the user interface is clean user-friendly (unlike before when it was cluttered with options), and the pictures load pretty quickly. I personally do like this new update. I used to use Google maps and use street view as an alternative to Google earth but this app also contains multiple options (such as 3D cities and the knowledge cards I spoke of earlier). 5 out of 5 in my opinion.
I have tried to get used to the update...but I can’t. Flying around in google earth was something I loved to do, looking at pictures of places I someday hope to visit and researching interesting locations around the world. It was a fun escape and it relaxed me. The new version makes that impossible for me now. The graphics and resolution is the worst! Blobs. Cartoonish blobs everywhere! Im not sure what you hoped to accomplish with this update but for me it was a definite failure. It’s awful.
Google Earth 1/5
Please return to the old Google Earth! I don’t like the new and approved. Terrible resolution!
By Dr. Krane
No mars, no sky, no moon.
Panoramio disappearing, this is just tragic.
It’s always winter in google earth. 1/5
From a distance the map is sunny and green. Lush with color. BUT, since I’ve owned the ap, for years, if I zoom in to about two miles above, it only shows me winter. I know I live in Alaska. But if you google Alaska, it says there are summers. I’d think you’d know that being google. But every time I want to look up something on G earth I loose my mind because I can’t tell where I am on it cause it’s black and white with snow. I can’t even tell where the roads go. Big hype for a bad map system. You could get a better review. But I have a feeling google reviews will be bogus too. Winter for four years damnit. Four years. Foooouuur yeeeeeaaaars.
I am 1000 th reviewer
Worse upgrade ever 1/5
I want to see the satellite images, that is what I use google earth for, The blocky 3D-ish cartoony images totally ruin it. Trees look like something out of an 8 bit video game and it totally trashes finer details. Make you're 2D view like...er...Maybe..2D..(duh). and save the 3D for 3D, - what a concept! Geesh... I am deleting google earth until it is put back
Would give it zero if I could 1/5
The images are now animated and cartoonish. You are not viewing what you actually want to see. Terrible quality. And adds. I despise adds. I accept them as a sometimes needed evil but Google does not need to push that trash on people. The imaging is what I'm the most ticked about thou. I can tell that google has zero care about what its customers think as many have complained about the resolution quality and google has given zero response. I highly recommend you not try this useless app.
No historical imagery on iPad bad rendering 1/5
Horrible rendering quality as bad as Apple Maps. We want high resolution aerial photos not minecraft blocks. Deleting until this is fixed.
ZERO ZERO ZERO STARS !!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1/5
I hate the fact that you can't turn off 3D rendering. I don't want a "graphical representation" of a satellite image! The amazing part of google earth is that you actually see "real images" of anywhere in the world. WTH google???
Can’t run .KMZ files 4/5
By Chasedog 100
Apples update of iOS to 11.0.3 wont load and run .KMZ files on iPad Pro. With Google Earth. Can u help?
I’ve always been in awe exploring google earth, but the limited options within this app made me want to break things.
I’m completely dissatisfied with the inability to disable the “3D” and fully believe that someone the development team should be terminated.
GO BACK IT WAS BETTER BEFORE CHEAP 3D
Another Downgrade Masquerading as Improvement 2/5
Compared to the earlier version, this is garbage.
The images are less detailed. Names of towns, cities, islands, capes, rivers, etc are often omitted, especially outside the US and Europe.
Street View is thus far limited. Frankly I preferred the pictures posted by users on the original.
The 3D feature is interesting, but unreliable; on occasion I have found myself under the landscape I was viewing.
And would it kill you to have a language option. It’s very PC of you to use the local language when you do deign to identify a place but as it happens I for one am not fluent in Russian, Turkish, Urdu, etc.
GPS Tracking 3/5
The app runs a lot smoother. So I’m pleased by the improvements to the stability of the app to be able to maintain and keep up with higher demands.
The major downside, is the utility of the app. I use this extensively for work, specifically for pinpointing exact gps locations where we require employees to sample from agricultural fields. The app does track your location, however you must continue to refresh every time you need to look where you are.
At some point I hope you will update the app to reapply the constant tracking.
Taste like sandwich 5/5
Ahh sh** 2/5
Update I hate cause it not let me go
No Map Scale in Google Earth? 3/5
By Unit 435
What kind of proper mapping application doesn’t have a map scale and easy method to measure distances? Other than cool map images I don’t know what this application is supposed to do. More game toy than navigation tool.
Very helpful 5/5
This app is very helpful and it helped me alot
GOOGLE EARTH IS AMAZING! 5/5
By Make more songs!!! Please!
I don’t know why people don’t like it!? It’s so cool to travel to places without really traveling!
Picture Frame feature freezes after use. 3/5
Get a neat narrow white border but can’t get image and border off the screen. Have to delete app to re-download the app which gives me a fresh start.
App was great during vacation for helping us decide which beaches were likely to match our preferences. Saved a lot of trial and error, time consuming beach crawls.
It is severely lacking in features like the ability to view historical images. Worse, I cant even open the web version that has features in Chrome without being forced back to this crap. Not everyone has a desktop to run web or pro so you should at least give us a choice to use the web version on devices.
By Detail Shining
It works so well and I love it
3D cool but needs 2d 2/5
By KML creator
I like the 3D but if you overlay cad lines , the 3d covers it up! You need a 2D format . The 2D option is not really 2D !
Very disappointed 1/5
I have been using google earth for years and absolutely loved it. Now the resolution does not clear up until you zoom in very closely so that no surroundings objects are visible. It is also not possible to switch the coordinates to decimal degrees. Also the image is always 2d or 3D instead of having an option of just the unaltered image.
Cartoony pics 3/5
I used to love this app as my window into the world. Then i started noticing what looked like cartoons inserted in places that i viewed.
Now i see that this seems to have had all real photos turned into cartoons...at least where i viewed. I get this is likely due to privacy fanaticism forced on le goog, but that doesn’t make me like it any better.
While i have to give this app props for the 3d, the accuracy, etc., the lack of real photos turns it into an app that i will now delete.
By Mutlu GÜNGÖR
1-)Yeni versiyonda konum izleme ekrana dokunduğumuz veya büyütüp küçülttüğümüzde kayboluyor. Konum izleme (mavi nokta) kaybolmaması lazım... Ekranı büyütüp küçülttüğümüzde konumumuz kayboluyor.
2-)Her konum izlemeye bastığımızda ekran küçülüp yeniden büyüyor. Oda data ve zaman kaybı.
3-) Kmz üzerinde not alma işlemi yapılırsa güzel olur.
Biz hareket hareket ederken konumumuzun da hareket ederse iyi olur
Less than 1 1/5
New app is horrible. Can't read GPS location it is so small. Can't change format of GPS to decimal decimal. New format is very inaccurate. Blue dot for location is to big to pin point a location. Wish I could convert back
