For folks who are fed up with Apple’s Maps app that comes bundled in the new iOS 6 operating system, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Word has it that from tomorrow onwards, the Street View feature will be made available on the Google Maps web app for both the iPhone and iPad hardware devices, at least according to Walt Mossberg of The Wall Street Journal fame. He claims that he is already able to access Google’s new Street View function, mentioning that it “worked well, allowing me to see the locations and pan around with a finger.”
Well, I guess that something is still better than nothing. After all, it remains unknown just when will Google actually develop an actual iOS-targeted Google Maps app, so to have a web app version running on the iPhone and iPad is definitely good news for folks who have been getting lost while relying on Apple’s fledgling Maps app. Are you stoked yet?
