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
Keeps crashing
BobbyGaudet on 10/16/2017
This app won’t even load. On the initial load screen, it has the little animated circle that says it is thinking, then the screen just goes black. I tried restarting the app and then my phone, nothing worked. I went to leave feedback through the App Store and was directed to the google earth web page, which then directed me to the app to make feedback. How the hell am I supposed to leave feedback in the app if the app won’t open!?!? You have forced my hand, as my only choice now is a bad review. Idiots
What did you do?
Rdnervn on 10/15/2017
I just updated my google earth and this is a mess! It can't find my address and the resolution is a total bust. How do I get the five star app back?
cannot open Kml
babykeeper on 10/13/2017
Can NOT open kml now!!!!! Why???it is ok before.
Serious breach of this app
Will & Mask on 10/12/2017
On the download page for this app, THIS GOOGLE EARTH APP, which I linked to through the ‘purchased’ tab in the App Store, THIS APP is titled: “$ {BUNDLE_DISPLAY...” - I don’t know what the whole title is because I would be a moron to download this to my new phone. Sad.
Lexistar1235 on 10/12/2017
It’s good. No problems and it’s easy to just type in an address and look at the house or building you are trying to look at. It hasn’t updated it’s pictures in a while though so if your looking for a new specific thing it won’t show up
DamagedClow on 10/11/2017
New update crashes
Lightning Lady on 10/11/2017
It shows the world, but as soon as I zoom in, it crashes...every single time! I have even rebooted, but to no avail. I could really use this for updates on the fires in Napa, with the KML overlays, but had to use a site on the Internet instead. Please fix the crashing!!
Toggle for 3D!!!
Ikeman12356 on 10/11/2017
This was a very useful app until we were forced to see the 3D rendering. 3D rendering slashes overall image quality enough to make the app functionally useless for me. 3D is a nice little feature for viewing city scapes or scenic landmarks but is simply too cluttering for general maps. Unless an option is added to completely toggle off 3D rendering (not the pitiful 3D/2D button that leaves rendering but changes viewing perspective) I will be using other services instead of this PREVIOUSLY spectacular app.
A little old but it’s good
Kool_K34 on 10/10/2017
It’s good just everything’s old
Constant crash
M chef M on 10/10/2017
Cannot do anything productive on this app. Tried on my iphone and iPad with the same results. Just keeps crashing. Emptied cache, removed “flying” features, help reduce the demand on the App. Still keeps crashing
Terrible update
Pitapit19874 on 10/10/2017
This is the first update that the app has had in awhile and it is awful. I use google earth often to help locate where I am in the field, especially when my GPS and survey equipment is down. Unfortunately, the update has made this app difficult to use and frustrating. The location finder isn’t located on the main screen which makes no sense and it automatically turns to 3D view, which is no use to me. I hate how it zooms all the way in. I hope there is a new update soon to fix this mess.
Buggy. Buggy. Buggy
frankc23 on 10/10/2017
Constantly crashing. Would be a great app if it worked.
I ABHOR this new version of Google Earth for the iPad!!!!!!
IronChefJudge on 10/10/2017
I WAS an avid Google Earth user, but I miss the old 2D version of Earth. This current blurry mess is very disappointing. There was newer imagery of my hometown in the previous version than in the current version. When I open the app, it never picks up where I left off.
AppStore Title Fix
XTWIAND on 10/9/2017
Overall google earth is a good app. I just wanted to let you know that when you see google earth in the AppStore it just says”$ bundle” something. Just wanted to let you know.
Cool pictures
spydragonfire on 10/8/2017
I love it when you have google earth it looks like 3D HD pictures real life and pop me up
Offline feature is missing or not working.
Herunsheng on 10/8/2017
I am using Google Earth app to view the amazing earth. While, the offline feature is missing or not as good as the old version. I have almost 200 MB caches in this app, but I cannot even open it when I am offline. Please make the app work offline.
Location blue dot doesn't work
I hope this app stays on 10/8/2017
The location won't follow when you're in a car, so you have to know keep pressing "my location".
Wrong, wrong,wrong again wrong
3rd Force 49 on 10/8/2017
When I put my address in, it shows my neighbor’s house instead of mine. I’ve mentioned this to the developer of this app and nothing has been done to fix it. I even gave my email address so they can contact me. I haven’t received an email from them as well.
StephCoral on 10/6/2017
The person above me needs to quit bitchin
Bunnyrabbit51 on 10/5/2017
The updates not good, went backwards. My location, use to be able to follow you as you moved. Now it stays at the original location. So when I move down the road 10 miles it still show me in the same place was before. Go back to old version!!!!
Doesn’t work with ios 11
Wonnie8747 on 10/5/2017
Used to be one of my favorite apps cos I could see the world with this. But now doesn’t work anymore with ios 11. And from some of the reviews I guess the updated version is not as good as the old version. So sad.
County Line boundaries
tvrepair on 10/4/2017
County Line boundaries are no longer there in the latest update. Please fix this now. Now I gotta figure out how to uninstall this terrible version of google earth as it is complete crap and install the old version.
Won’t open
CITYXCOWGIRL on 10/4/2017
Simply doesn’t work. It’s loaded but says I don’t have an internet connection?? On my IPhone? Google Earth needs to fix this cluster F ?!k!
PuckyRoca on 10/4/2017
Tengo problemas en mi iPhone 5s iOS 11 con la ultima actualización la app no ingresa... se sale a inicio cuando se quiere ocuparla.
Gomerpile2814 on 10/4/2017
Doesn’t work
Great App
Peanuts and Pop on 10/2/2017
pathetic is more like it!
☀️Google Earth Pro for iPhone☀️
MacintoshOne on 10/1/2017
Absolutely marvelous! How about more features implemented into the iOS version, from the Mac version of Google Earth Pro? I really like the import kmz feature! Great job Google!

no real names aloud on 9/30/2017
ok before I start this story was like back in november or something when I tried to get on google earth on my iPad at school it would always crash. But u like bow u get to see inside the White House!!!!!!
Blsi87 on 9/28/2017
Please fix your junk of a program. It sucked with iso 9&10 and now crashes ever time with iso11.
Very poor low altitude resolution
Willows star on 9/28/2017
You have completely erased the adventure of google earth. It use to be fun to go low and slow over a town or city or landscape and see the most amazing it all looks like bad CG. At low altitude, below 10,000 feet, you could clearly see individual people, read street signs and billboards, identify individual cars by make and model.Now it's pretty much useless.
Wrong address location
Thema98 on 9/27/2017
I used to be able to type in our address and it'd bring me right to our location, now when I search our address it's shown a good 3 miles away from where it actually is! Makes me wonder how many other addresses/locations are incorrect
Problem with new iOS
Kurt lynch on 9/27/2017
Ever since the new iOS update Google earth seems to crash every time I try to open it. I’ve deleted and reinstalled and restarted phone seems to be a problem on the app end of things. The bad part is that I use Google earth to open my KMZ files for work.
At least make the Pyramids 3D
Hollywoodgoonie on 9/26/2017
Cmon, hard to imagine you’re that overrun... hire an intern to do it it’ll be fun.
Reviews not listed chronologically
dwednutpip on 9/25/2017
How can we effectively judge the app development if the reviews aren’t listed chronologically? Please add review search filters ie by date, best to worst, worst to best, etc
Volunteers do street views!
YankeeInCA on 9/25/2017
These are satellite images taken in orbit. Users are the "drones" that fill in the buildings! I noticed right away that the richer the country, the sharper the image. Google is just putting it all together for us. I never would have inagined this as a child. My vote for the most rugged terrain on earth is in Tajikistan and its border with Uzbekistan (sp?) All glaciers all the time! Google doesn't pay US taxes, but I forgive them using this app -- usually on my ipad.
Om Tare Tutare Tue soha on 9/25/2017
I just read a review by a man complaining . about the man app. Instead of everyone remembering this: We used to have just maps hearsay etc. making this new generation look out the window feel life but please don’t tape My point is social media should be expected fail,because the world is ever changing. 🤢
Photos were gone now they are there
They're all taken 3.14159 on 9/23/2017
Updated to latest version, did not display photos. The help section said to go to settings and click on show photos, but that was not there. Next day it was, go figure. Works now.
What happened to picture quality?
EzraT on 9/23/2017
Don’t know if it was the update to ios11
Tilt works differently now.
Billboar on 9/22/2017
Tilt works differently now: You have to hold two fingers close together in a horizontal manner. And the movement is up instead of down when you want to tilt the earth. Moreover, all the photos are removed. - - - They say photos are back. I will check on that. Yes, photos are back! Plus, street view has moved to google earth.
Pictures returned! Yay! Resolution still needs work.
Momofthree123 on 9/22/2017
This has been my favorite app for years and I've used it to essentially "tour" the world. But it was a bad decision to eliminate Panaromio photos before having another system in place. Usability is vastly decreased because there are so few places in the world with street view and I don't want to just look at major cities. I want to see the Sahara Desert and volcanos and natural land formations! I can hardly use the app the way I used to. The only fix to this is the get large increases of 360 photos from all over the world. But they should not have removed the photos before this happened. Also the resolution is terrible now! It looks like the Simpsons with blocky cartoon quality as you get close up. The app is nearly useless to me as is😞 Update 9/22/17: the photos returned is a vast improvement! The biggest missing chunk is now restored! We do still need to work on that messy choppy resolution. I've saved so many screenshots over the years and the resolution was definitely better before. I feel like they'll get there again. And with it so will my five stars return when it does.
I love it
Grace Leah on 9/22/2017
It’s lit and they recently download it on my school iPad and when I’m bored I use it it’s lit and can’t get any better good job google even though I like apple better 🙂
Hey Google
Dbjkdhjkidf on 9/21/2017
Hello! I’m finding this app very entertaining and would recommend a few things just to make it more fun and exciting. Can you please add the solar system and a little description about everything in it? Maybe show us a rotating image of the planets and sun?....and maybe a few other things such as other solar system names. Sorry, it’s a lot to ask, but I’d really appreciate if you did do it. Please respond if you have read this. Thanks!
Saving My Places
Cehange on 9/21/2017
They have fixed it based on my review, so it makes sense to award 5 stars. Thanks for the work. Does not appear to save files in "my places" if I reboot the iPad or shut off the app. What is the point of "my places" if you can't leave kml and kmz files there? Am I missing the 'save my places' command that is on the desk top version?
Worse upgrade ever
yorison on 9/21/2017
I want to see the satellite images, that is what I use google earth for, The blocky 3d- ish cartoony images totally ruin it. Geesh... I am deleting google earth until it is put back
Can’t save gps coordinates?
JeffreyDrives on 9/21/2017
I’ve been using Google Earth for my travels for years. I used to be able to find an area on the map that I want to explore and save the gps coordinates for later use. With this version, I cannot save gps coordinates. Please add that feature to this new version. Until then....
qje079 on 9/21/2017
pls fix the bug that cannot display the border/name of the country
Version 9 Good and Bad
Papa-Dodge on 9/21/2017
I love the speed of Google Earth version 9. However, two things are missing from version 8 that I cannot live without: (1) We need to have true 2D mode without simulated 3D buildings in order to see accurate detail of landscape; and (2) We need the ability use Google Earth in split screen mode (not just overlay mode) so it can be used with Safari and other apps seamlessly. The version 8 had both of these capabilities and they are missed very much! An update should be an improvement, not a loss of much needed functionality.
No option to delete search history
Anneg6314 on 9/21/2017
Update 9/21/17: glitch is fixed. Thank you for responding! Horrible app now! It's glitchy and slow. No option to delete search history. I tried searching help and got help for the desktop version. Why can't I delete search history on the new app version?
