Greetings all. Last week I download the free Google Earth app. Almost right away I noticed a precipitous drop in battery life, a problem I never had before but have read about with some interest and amusement on this forum. For example, I use my iPhone 3G to wake me in the morning; on the first two mornings after I downloaded the app. a fully charged battery was wiped out overnight and the iPhone shut itself down before the alarm was to go off. Surely, after I deleted Google Earth, everything is back to normal. Is there a setting I should I have engaged in Google Earth to prevent this? It's certainly not the end of the world as the app was more for fun than anything serious so I won't miss it but it would be nice to know if anyone else encountered this problem and found a remedy.
