So Does apple new maps have anything that can compete with Google Maps StreetView?
i think google still wins that one, but Apples maps have some cool things.
say bye bye to street view. So you lose a feature to gain something other phones have had for 4-5 years. Neat isnt it?
What "cool" things do you speak of?
The 3D rendering comes across as gimmicky to say the least. Streetview will certainly go amiss with this replacement..
Well, you know how Apple is...they don't give us every feature we want within applications. Over time we'll get everything. I'm just glad we have a free turn by turn navigation. About darn time.
The thing is Google will undoubtedly just put Maps in the App Store anyway
Just download Google Earth App for street view.
It doesnt have street view on the iphone app
I got a feeling apple will not let google maps into the app store.................
Well patience is key. By the time iOS 6 goes public I would expect Google to release a Google Maps app or at the very least a street view app.
But Apple doesn't allow duplicate functionality apps, do they? So that means no Google Maps, right?
It also means no other navigation apps. Who knows what will happen. Shady times
There are multiple browsers and even a mail client in the app store nowadays, I'm not sure Apple is as strict on this rule as they were previously.
If they did 3D everywhere and you can zoom close to street level, but that could take years.
Not yet, but tomtom is meant to be creating a street veiw of their own which will most likely make it's way to maps.
Actually you lose a couple of really useful features, to gain nothing at all, unless you have a 4S.
Google's transit routes
Google's POI database
Turn-by-Turn navigation - 4S/iPad only
3D Flyover - 4S/iPad only
Since when did we have street view on iOS??
I'd be surprised if, at least here in the EU, Apple are allowed to 'ban' Google Maps from the App Store. Surely that's stifling competition, or something equally ludicrous. But either way, I'll be hoping a Google Maps app for iPhone follows soon...
Drop a pin, tap on the little man with the Orange background in the pop up and then watch!
Since for ages. Drop a pin in Maps and hit the little man icon in the pin's bubble.
Holy ****. I never new that!
Lucky you! You won't be missing any features in the new version LOL!
I am sure that iOS maps will have streetview. I recently saw a few TomTom trucks in my city that had streetview cameras mounted.
Since the maps are provided by TomTom and "others", I am fairly certain we'll see it make an appearance soon.
I'm hoping google releases a map app for iOS.
If they release even half of what the maps app for Android is, I can't see anyone using the native app.
I'm a huge apple fan, but they really shouldn't have gone down this path. They'll never be able to catch up to and provide the maps experience that google did.
The problem is that it took Google 5 years to cover nearly 40 countries around the world. Bing has been working on their equivalent service "Streetside" since 2009 and it doesn't cover anywhere near as many places as Google does.
It's not easy to catch up with a service like this.
