This week, Google released an updated version of its Google Earth app for the iPhone and iPad that includes 3D aerial imagery for a number of metropolitan areas. Initially, the 3D images are available for Boulder, Boston, Charlotte, Lawrence (Kan.), Long Beach (Ca.), Los Angeles, Portland (Ore.), San Diego, Santa Cruz, Tampa, Tucson, and the San Francisco Bay Area (including the Peninsula and East Bay) as well as Rome, Italy, but Google says it will be offering the feature for more cities in the future. Additionally, the new version of the app includes a "tour guide" mode that recommends interesting places to explore. Google Earth for iOS is free and available in the iTunes App Store now.source: Google
