For the first time in almost a year, Google Earth for iOS devices has just received a substantial update. First up, version 7.1.1 of the app now adds Google Maps Street View. With the functionality, users can explore the world at street level. The update also brings improved direction and search capabilities. Updated directions will allow a user to visualize transit, walking, biking, and driving directions in 3-D. And the revamped search list will allow users to browse results more quickly. Finally, the app features an improved interface that lets users browse and enable different layers through use of the new left side panel. Google Earth is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now in the App Store for free.
