Google just updated Google Earth to version 3.1 for iOS devices of Apple , dramatically improving the visual quality of the application, It supports the latest operating system and adding the possibility of exploring the seabed.The visual improvements have been achieved in part, of course, thanks to Retinal Display , proprietary technology of the iPhone 4, then providing images of the ocean in high definition.
New features of the application are actually two: one bathymetry , feature that lets you explore the ocean floor and the other the ” ocean layer “that provides information and content of some of the most important ocean on the planet.
Information is obtained from Wikipedia and Sylvia Earle Sea Alliance , while these featureswere already present in Android for more than a month . Aside from the advantage they can have the owners of an iPhone 4 by the Retina Display, the application is available for both iPhone and iPod Touch.
With Google Docs also underway for IOS, it seems that Google does not want to miss the opportunity to increase their presence on the mobile platform rival . After all, these are curious times in which the tech giants face off in some areas, for some products, but not across the board.
