When I install Google Earth from Google Play, initially it works, you can see the 3D Earth centered in the screen. Then the first time tips appears, teaching you how to use the fingers to zoom, change angle, etc.
When you close the last tip, no more 3D Earth, only a black screen. The interface seems to work, you can see the pictures of places at the bottom of the screen, and you can go to in app settings.
Maybe my device isn't enough for Earth.
