As we mentioned a few weeks ago, the new firmware update today for the iPhone (version 2.2) includes Google StreetView. I’m still loading the update on my phone, but I’m expecting good things. As with Google Earth for the iPhone, I would think that the multi-touch input will work very well with StreetView. We’ll see.
In the meantime, here’s a quick screenshot from CrunchGear.
Update: How to access StreetView
While the implementation of StreetView on the iPhone is great (pinch, drag, etc), accessing it is a bit tricky. To get into Streetview:
- Drop a pin somewhere on the map, or search for a location.
- Tap on the pin to bring up the info window.
- Click the little red icon on the left to access StreetView.
