I'm new to this site so if I'm doing something wrong, please let me know.
I want to use Google Earth on the iPAD. The reviews on the App Store are quite mixed. There isn't much middle ground - either 1 or 5. It sounds like there some technical problems with the newest version, 6.1.0. I'm surprised that there is no discussion on this site.
Does anyone have any word on Earth?
Works fine for me.
It's free. Get it, try it, don't like it, delete it. Simple.
I love Google Earth.....one of those apps I just get lost in.......!
I followed the path suggested by Kaykaykay. It seems to work fine although I haven't used much of it, yet.
Now I want to upload a file from my PC GE to my iPAD GE. I have tried some things from an old thread but haven't had complete success. Anybody had experience with this?
If you look under Layers you will see a My Maps option. It requires that you have a My Maps account with Google. Once you do you should be able to use it view the custom map files generated by Google Earth.
I've never actually used this feature, so YMMV.
What is it called in the apps store. Just Google Earth?
Yep. Google Earth

Different apps are available in different stores. This can be for a variety of reasons. The first is the developer, who decides what stores they will place their app on. The second is copyright and international laws/regulations. Given the nature of the Google Earth app it is probably some fiddly regulation. Lots of governments have expressed irritation over Google's map software and privacy, or other issues.
It is possible to get a second account in another country. I should probably book mark one of the better threads, since this comes up so often, but a search for making accounts in other countries (the U.S. being the most common, and U.K. running a close second) should turn up the instructions.
Once you have a second Apple ID, you need to be careful to track what apps you get from what country. They can only be updated using the account they were purchased with.
Also, if Russia is serious about blocking Google Earth, they would probably do some IP blocking as well, which would stop the app from working even if you had it. I've never heard of this happening in Russia, so I suspect it's not an issue; but you may want to consult with someone who knows more on the subject before wasting your time.
