Google today released a brand new version of Google Earth for iOS devices. It's the same app that Google made available to Android devices and the web back in April, which represents a complete overhaul of the app that Google spent two years developing. This revised Google Earth is all about giving people more ways to view things thanks to changing perspectives, new zooming behaviors, and, of course, plenty of ways to share. Google Earth now includes Voyager, a tool for exploring and taking guided tours on the planet's most famous locations, such as Paris and Rio de Janeiro. Natural Treasures from BBC Earth will take you to caves and jungles, or you can walk through dozens of museums. The Voyager section includes some 140 tours available in eight languages. The refreshed "I’m feeling lucky" search button will randomly select an interesting spot and tell you everything. Maps includes a wider variety of Knowledge Cards that provide details about places around the globe. Google Earth gains more 3D content, as well, allowing people to swoop through the Grand Canyon or check out European castles from every angle. Last, Google Earth explorers can send "postcards" to friends and family by taking 3D pictures within the app for sharing. The new Google Earth is available for free from the iTunes App Store.
