How does breakfast in New York, dinner in Paris, and a midnight snack in Budapest sound? Well unless you’re a jet-setting mogul or a superhero, it probably sounds like a ridiculous improbability.
But with the free Google Earth app from the Play Store you can virtually travel the world on your DROID RAZR MAXX HD and see all the exotic locales and landmarks you’ve only dreamed about.
You can use voice search to look up cities, businesses and places of interest. With the Earth Gallery, you can find some pretty cool maps that show real-time earthquakes, planes in flight, hiking trails and more. The newly added “tour guide” feature lets you discover new places to explore with some virtual tours that are accessed by swiping up from the bottom of the screen.
And if 3D is your thing, there are now select cities that have complete fly-through recreations with every building modeled in 3D. Some of the cities include San Francisco, Rome, Boston and more being added on a regular basis going forward.
Navigating is easy too with a series of one and two finger swipes that zoom in and out, rotate and tilt the Earth and all the places you visit. This really is the world at your fingertips, so get traveling now, even if it’s only from your couch.
