Google Earth 6.2.0 for iOS and Android

Google’s free Google Earth for both iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch) and Android devices has been updated to Google Earth 6.2.0 and it’s a major update. I know a lot of genealogists use it as a supplement (or even replacement in some cases) to Google Maps.

The Android update was released last week, the iOS version this week, and both are very similar when it comes to the updated and new features (and fixes).
