Google add Street View functionality to web-based Google Maps

Thu, Oct 4, 2012


As predicted yesterday by All Things D, Google Street View has now been added as an option on Google’s mobile web app for iOS devices. Apple of course has been criticized for the shortcomings in its own homegrown Maps app, so much so that CEO Tim Cook was prompted to issue an apology letter to iPhone users. Therein he even suggested that iPhone users check out rival mapping applications like MapQuest and that users could add a Google Maps widget to their homescreen via in the interim. The web version of Google Maps however lacked some features present in the native app, so the recent addition of Street View is a welcome change for those who prefer navigation a’la Google.
