Google Earth Gets Tablet Specific Update

Google Earth has been available for Android devices since last year, but with the app only designed to work on mobile phone screens, Android tablet users have been having to make do with a less than perfect app for their larger screens.

Thankfully, Google have released a Google Earth update for tablets running Honeyomb, which makes better use of the larger tablet screen and offers special new features.

The biggest difference between the newly updated version of Google Earth over previous versions is that this update allows Honeycomb users to take advantage of the 3D view for buildings, a feature that before the update was only available to computer users.

Other improvment have been made to the user interface and the way information and pop ups are used throughout the app.

As always Google Earth is available for a free via the Android Market.
