    Pretty sure you can't do street view in the Google Earth app itself, but it works fine in maps.

    Do you mean the following? Go to Maps and open the bottom righthand corner where the 'page' is turned up. 'Drop a pin' and change to satalite. Then click on the orange circle with the man in, this will give you street view.

    Wow! Thanks so much. I didn't realize ios maps had street view baked in. I figured since desktop version uses flash that we were sol on
    iOS.

    I'm guessing we'll not have this ability on apple maps.

    That worked but its the same in google earth. You know how in google earth for pc you can do a street view where you can look at the front of your house and it looks like you are standing on the sidewalk looking at your house ? i would like to do that on my ipad if its possable

    Pretty sure the only way to do the "standing on the sidewalk" view on the iPad is to do it via the Maps app as stated above.

    I would guess that once iOS 6 comes out with Apple's own Maps, Google will release an updated Google Maps / Google Earth app with some of these features.

    I figured it out. Tap your little orange man to show streets, then drag him onto the blue line that shows a street
