As of this morning (19th March 2009) Google Street view has gone live in the UK.
I know there is no Street View information live for the UK yet so I headed over to New York on my iPhone Maps app to see how the Street View interface looked, only problem was I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to view Street View images.
I tried switching from Map->Satellite->Hybrid view, zooming completely, turning the iPhone into landscape mode, nothing. Then I accidentally clicked on the little orange man icon on the push pin I’d dropped and presto, street view!
Just thought I’d put this brief blog entry up for anybody trying to figure out how to access Street View, now I know where to click it’s easy, but I wouldn’t say it’s one of the most obvious places to look.
