Google might be busy promoting its own Android mobile platform, but it's still giving Apple's iPhone some love. In fact, the search giant has released a version of Google Earth for free on the iTunes App Store. The applet works on both the iPhone and its watered-down derivative, the iPod touch.
Check out this video of the software in action:
The iPhone-ified Google Earth has the same real-time 3D goodness as the PC version, but with a new control scheme. You can move by swiping your finger, tilt the camera by tilting your phone, and pinch to zoom in and out. Better yet, Google has implemented the My Location feature such that the app can pinpoint your current location. And if you'd like to see ground-level shots, Google serves up geo-tagged Panoramio photos just like on the PC. Neat.
