Where you use Google Maps to help you get around, Google Earth is there for those times you want to go off and explore the world without leaving your home. Filled with glorious 3D imagery with just a swipe of the finger you can be checking out that part of the world you always wanted to visit, flying through an entire city right on your phone or tablet.
But Google Earth is still more than even that. With maps for real-time earthquakes, planes in flight, hiking trails, city tours, and much more, Google Earth is that tool you turn to see the world as it is, today. Navigating it is such an easy task, such a pleasurable experience, it's easy to lose all track of time as you're bouncing around the globe.
There's a reason Google is almost the default choice for services like this. Because no-one else does it better.
