Following the apology that came from Apple CEO Tim Cook in regard of the company's poor quality iOS Maps app, Google is all set to make the world know about its expelled maps service that is easily available on internet. Google maps service has a healthy API and very soon it would be available in a local iOS app also.
The Street View service has been made available by Google in mobile browsers from yesterday onwards only. Accessing the Street View panoramic imagery is quite simple.
As advised and explained by Google, for this users have to visit maps. google. com on their mobile device and then as soon as they will begin searching for a location, there will be loaded a white bar, on which the "pegman" icon will be available just above the bottom menu bar.
By clicking on the "pegman", the Street View images of the searched location will be loaded.
The service has been tried and tested by the InformationWeek's office in San Francisco over an AT&T 4G, connection. In terms of signal strength, this connection is good but then it fails to respond to searches.
The "pegman" did not work well in mobile safari. However it appeared in Chrome for iOS.
