Wahh wahh, Apple’s iOS 6 maps suck! Yes we know that already. For those still missing Google’s many features like street view, public transportation and generally better maps data, Google’s got your back. Street View has been added to mobile devices!
Per Macrumors: “As noted by iPhoneinCanada.ca, Google today added its Street View functionality to the web-based version of its Google Maps product available to iOS and other mobile device users.”
Our own tests with Google Street View via the Google Maps web app were very straightforward. Just load up the maps.google.com web app in mobile Safari, tap on a location and a new bottom bar emerges with an icon of a person. Tap that and voila–you have Street View, which opens up in a new tab displaying the URL maps.gstatic.com.
What do you think? Should Apple have stuck with Google for at least one more year?
