Google Earth for Android

<a href="http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/161389/google_earth_5.html">Google Earth</a> is a Web-based app that allows you to explore the world (and some of its <a href="http://www.pcworld.com/article/170870/strangest_sights_in_google_earth_part_ii.html">strangest sights</a>) in 3D via satellite imagery. Until fairly recently the best features of Google Earth were mostly limited to the desktop client--but now a free app is available for phones running Android 2.1 and above. It's a fun and educational app, but it requires a strong data connection, and some features may perform sluggishly on some phones with slower processors, such as the Droid.
