Google Earth for Android update now makes Earth look better than ever on your tablet.

Google said that they have "added support for fully textured 3D buildings, so your tour through the streets of Manhattan will look more realistic than ever. There's also a new action bar up top, enabling easier access to search, the option to "fly to your location" and layers such as Places, Panoramio photos, Wikipedia and 3D buildings."

"We took advantage of the larger screen size, including features like content pop-ups appearing within Earth view, so you can see more information without switching back and forth between pages."

"With the larger tablet screen, you can fly around in 3D while also browsing user photos from Panoramio. The photos pop up within the imagery so you can interact with them without losing sight and its surroundings. Also, by clicking on the layer button on the action bar, you can choose which layers you want to browse," Google added.
