There are those of you out there who are lucky enough to own an Apple iPhone and a Mac — if that is the case then you should consider Google Earth’s new flight sim “EarthGlider”. First of all, download the Flype app for your iPhone — this will allow you to control the flight simulator thanks to the accelerometer of the iPhone.
All you need to do is tilt your Apple iPhone in the direction you wish your plane to go on your Mac — it is truly awesome to see. Other tweaks can be made from the smartphone, such speed adjustments and starting location. More details can be found on Google Earth Blog
The iPhone app costs $3.99, but the Mac software is free. There are many flight sim fans out there that are willing to pay this small price, are you one of them? Check out the video below and let us know what you think. If this app is not to your liking then check out some of the others available here.
