Google Earth on Android, iOS adds file and Gallery support

updated 07:40 pm EDT, Wed March 14, 2012

Mobile apps now recognize KML data

Google has released updates for its Google Earth mobile apps on Android and iOS devices. The latest versions bring support for KML files, enabling users to view custom waypoints that were saved from the desktop software, shared between mobile devices, or posted on the mobile web.

Users can also take advantage of Google Earth Gallery content, which further bridges the gap between the desktop and mobile utilities. The Earth Gallery includes a wide range of custom maps, such as USGS real-time earthquake maps, Everytrail hiking trails, and college basketball tournament maps.

The Android app adds a new "Share" feature that allows users to share a screenshot of their current view via Google+, Gmail or other applications. Both the Android and iOS variants also provide minor improvements to navigation functionality.

Google Earth 6.2 is immediately available as a free download on the Android Market and App Store.

    One more reason Android IS better.

    Specially more so as Apple adopts the unreliable Open Street Maps...
