Google Maps is among those services offered by one of the world’s largest business that all of us take for given. It’s been there for as long as we can keep in mind and is constantly offered. It has nearly become a staple in our lives being so easily accessible through desktop and mobile devices through web access and Google’s own apps.

Now in an effort making Street View stick out from its moms and dad app – – Google Maps, the Mountain View based giant has released the function as a standalone app. The app has actually been labelled Street View on Google Maps for Google Play, with Google Street View being the title of choice for the App Store.

Google Street View has actually always been easily accessible by means of mobile devices such as the iPad or iPhone, Android devices, as well as through the mobile Web. With that said, like a lot of services that require complex interaction, the user experience was less-than-satisfactory considered that the function had actually to be accessed and connected with through the Google Maps app.

The native Google Street View app attempts to fix that problem by bundling it all together into a native app shell that has been designed and developed with a small, multi-touch display screen in mind. For the very first time ever users have the ability to visit immersive 360-degree imagery, as well as contribute their own material that is pressed directly to Google Maps.


Everything that you would anticipate to be in a Street View app exists and right. Those downloading and connecting with Google’s new providing are able to explore the world through the little screen making use of familiar gestures, along with find new locations and natural wonders. The app also supplies the ability for users to step directly into stunning areas that have been mapped out utilizing Google’s Street View tech, such as famous museums, big notable arenas, and a plethora of restaurants dotted worldwide. It actually does provide an instant “through the keyhole” look into specific parts of the world.


That capability is remarkable enough, however the killer-feature award definitely goes to the app’s capability to permit users to create photo spheres making use of the device’s electronic camera or a third-party one-shot spherical camera. Producing 360-degree panoramas of individual landscapes or locations of interest is very simple from within both the iOS and Android apps, and can then be published directly to Google Maps for sharing with the world.
