Under the sea with Google Earth for iOS with Retina Display support

Google has updated the universal Google Earth iOS app with Retina Display support and has added underwater bathymetry and ocean surface features.

For most users of the iPhone 4 and new iPod Touch, the Retina Display support is probably the bigger news than the ocean-specific features, as certainly having the sharper imagery and graphics is very welcome. For the iPad, however – which of course doesn’t have a Retina Display – the big news in version 3.1.0 is certainly the addition of the ocean layers.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – Google Earth is one of the most fun applications out there, and playing with it on the iPad is especially enthralling. The update is live now in iTunes.
