Google Street View on iPhone maps

On my way home from Portsmouth I was using the maps on my iPhone when all of a student I pressed something by mistake then from no where whatever street I clicked on.

I managed to find out how to do it on purpose, and not just by mistake. If you drop a pin to pick a precise spot on the map then it comes up with the name of where that spot it. To the left of that name is an icon of a yellow faceless man. Once you click that you are now in street view!

If you are like me you will have saved some places in your contacts or bookmarks, which is handy as you can just have a look at you’re old house or school from the ¬†front on your phone and not just see if the roof still has your old ball on top.

With the touch screen on the iPhone, I really think that the 360 images work really well. It flows a lot better and the images on the phone make it look a lot better as well. So if you like and are not against the streey view then have a look. I believe it works a whole lot better than the Google Eart app.
