This video is so cool, it almost speaks for itself. I stumbled upon this over at the Google Earth Blog. It is a proof of concept, tech demo of an Google Earthlike application for the iPhone.
Here is the video:

I am particularly excited by the the tilt control. I remember when the iPhone first came out, how excited people were when I would demonstrate the cool photo.app. They would oooh and aaahh as I flicked the pictures around and zoomed in. Now, that iPhones are everywhere, that magic has lost.
This version of Google Earth brings that magic back. I am hoping this application is available soon on at the App Store. Yes, remember the App Store? It was promised to come in June. With all of the guessing and rumoring around the hardware, we almost forgot about the software. After all, my current iPhone will be compatible with most, if not all, of the forthcoming software. I hope that includes the cool Google Earth.
