Google Earth


New Member
I understand that I can install the desktop version of Google Earth on to my Surface Pro.

I believe that the Pro would make an excellent Google Earth viewer, with its gyros and the tablet format. Am I missing something in terms of it being available as a Windows 8 App, potentially for both the Pro and the RT?

Google Earth does work on the Pro as a desktop application of course. Unfortunately, it is not touch enabled well, so that many of the navigation commands need to be done with the trackpad or a mouse.

I think Google pulling 3rd party compatibility with reader and calendar is a sign of things to come. They are moving more to an apple model where their apps support for other platforms will wane. I would not expect a Google earth for win 8
