While we debate over whether or not Google is scheming to do evil things with Verizon, there’s no denying the simple fact that checking out what’s underneath the surface of the Earth’s oceans on your mobile phone isn’t cool.
The latest version of Google Earth (v1.1) for Android allows you to “look around” and see what’s below the surface of, let’s say, Monterey Bay Canyon, for example. There’s also a new layer dubbed “Explore the Ocean” that’s chock full of photos of videos about the sea and its ecosystem. And anyone running Android 2.2 with Flash installed can watch videos within the app.
Download it now from the Android Market, if you’re running Android 2.1 or later.
