Google Maps at the Edge of the Earth

Interesting thing happens when you explore a location in Google Maps that’s at the edge of the earth. For example, if you search for Fiji in Web Google Maps, you will see it appear just to the right of Australia. Now, if you want, you have the ability to click on the map and move it to the left or right as much as you want. You can keep moving to the right until you stumble right back on Fiji. It is as if you flew around the world and ended up in the same spot.

However, if you try to do the same in the iPhone Google Maps App, you cannot, and you are figuratively stuck at the edge of the earth. It appears as though the iPhone version of Google Maps does not support the ability to move from left to right across the different hemispheres!
