Serious degradation in view quality. Is fake poor imaging the future here?
New is definitely not better. The new version currently has gone from photo image quality of chosen location to a poor quality laughable blocky, splotchy, poor color VGA resolution image of the same location. I don't care about all the new fluff that now gets in the way of the location I am looking at. If I am looking at Portland, Oregon, the Columbia River, the University of Washington or the Rose Bow, I do not want to all of a sudden be looking at the Sahara desert with tourist trap blabber boxes. And no return capability without re entering the chosen site from scratch. I want the old version back where I could actually see the chosen area I was looking at instead of a poor animation cartoon rendering. There is no resolution choice in the settings panel. If this is going in what appears to be the direction of other google apps, it looks like it will just turn into another advertising page full of spam with an occasional ability to see what your actually searching for.
Way more limited use since update..not good
This has been my favorite app for years and I've used it to essentially "your" the world. But it was a bad decision to eliminate Panaromio photos before having another system in place. Usability is vastly decreased because there are so few places in the world with street view and I don't want to just look at major cities. I want to see the Sahara Desert and volcanos and natural land formations! I can hardly use the app the way I used to. The only fix to this is the get large increases of 360 photos from all over the world. But they should not have removed the photos before this happened.
Also the resolution is terrible now! It looks like the Simpsons with blocky cartoon quality as you get close up. The app is nearly useless to me as is😞
The app was perfect before
What the heck happened to panoramio and Wikipedia and the old resolution. Being able to scroll around smoothly, move your fingers to go to 3D and being able to put the orange man down on any landscape without there needing to be street view, and being able to walk around with him to explore landscapes in detail. Overall I'm not impressed with this update at all. It's basiccly google maps taking a step back. Bring back the old please!!!
The update basically forcées you to get used to something new, N/S button and he man are opposite to each other, for 3D u swipe in opposite direction. Ah yes, and the window popping up in different places then before and not taking up the whole page. This is honestly dissapointing. I just am disappointed st this
