Why does the Google Earth app suck so hard?

    Hi, I do not understand the praise the Google Earth app gets, I find it the most hard to use, un-user friendly app I've ever used, I can't seem to operate it to save my life. If I could of given it under 1 star I would have!

    I use a iPhone 3G and when trying the app I was doing so over 20MB WiFi connection and it stutters, keeps going off into space, earth flipping upside down, can never get to where I want to go with it.

    So what's the deal, does anyone else dislike it as much as I or what?

    "Sucks so hard" is kind of harsh...;)

    GE for iPhone is a neat, show-off app that you wow your friends with but IMO, it's just not a practical application - the lack of street names was one sore point. So I deleted it off my iPhone. Anyways, Google Maps (a far more useful/practical app) does everything GE does and more.

    I've found the extra horsepower of the 3Gs provides a much better user experience.
