For the past twenty minutes I've been looking at my iPad with childlike fascination. My Apple device isn't new to me, nor is Google Earth a recent discovery. But the combination of the two is something beautiful and mesmerizing.


Google Earth is amazing as a native iPad app. It's got a simple-yet-useful interface and takes proper advantage of the device's large screen—all the features of the iPhone app, just better.

The app is free and available in the App Store now. [iTunes]
