Google has updated its Google Earth iOS app with support for KML files to add custom maps and overlays to the earth. KML files exist for all sorts of different types of data, including real-time earthquake maps and airline flight tracking, or educational information about volcanos.
One of the most powerful features of Google Earth is the ability to view custom maps or overlays, which are also commonly known as KML files. Ever since we introduced Google Earth on mobile devices, users have requested support for custom content. Today, we are proud to announce Google Earth 6.2 for Android and iOS, which includes support for KMLs. Now anywhere you find a “Google Earth file” (KML file) while you’re browsing the mobile web, just click on the link and the Google Earth app will automatically launch and load the custom map.
Google Earth is a free download for iPhone and iPad from the App Store. [Direct Link]

It's a real shame that isn't going to happen, soon.
I think the thought that it might bother me bothers you more than I care to bother about.
imagine another title, e.g. "Call of Duty out on Xbox today!" yet the picture was of the wii version (worse version).
Can't believe you are having trouble understanding this.
android /= iOS, read the title...
But here you go ;)
The views look incredibly clean and clear on my new iPad. I've never seen it look this good in the past.
