    Oh god Earth Picker is amazing, when that first started we got totally obsessed with playing it at work. We spent a lot of time memorising flags, which countries drive on the left, working out how to spot languages on signs etc.

    Earth picker is even harder than first time it was released. With so many additions of backpack googles stuff can get really difficult to figure out

    Earth-Picker is fun! Got only 1 out of 20 tries but have seen many beautiful photos of amazing places. Great recommendation, gracias!

    I wish they could make it work in every country. I love travelling in the Middle East, and a lot of countries there are simply not in Street View at all.

    Wow, it's really amazing! I thought I was looking at a random screenshot of a game (with awesome graphics)

    Street View on Google Maps has been a life-saver for me over a few business trips. I've been able to see what each area I am visiting looks like online; it makes recognising buildings, street markers and other unique features so easy when I am physically in the locale. It'd be amazing to have the world documented via Street View. The challenge after that would be to keep it all updated!
