    I'm surprised they even ported it to the iPhone OS, them having Android and all.

    But its pretty laggy. Cooliris is Smoother than this, though not as advanced. Still expected a bit better from Google.

    I'm amazed by this :O I reckon this in time will have some sort of direction cabability with the GPS


    EDIT: After having a little go ive realised that its location tracking is much better than the stock Maps app. It has got my position every time and I'm using a first gen iPhone

    maps is 2d, earth is 3d. the main difference is how theyre used. google maps is more for finding directions to a place or looking up an address, earth is for exploring the world. although earth has most of maps features in it, at least on the desktop it does.
