Streets - The Street View App
By FutureTap GmbH
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Do you yearn for the days of Street View in iOS 5? “Flyover” in the new maps app is great but sometimes you want a closer look?
Welcome to “Streets”. Launch it from Maps and go back with a single tap. You’ll feel right at home!
INTEGRATED WITH MAPS
Streets is Maps’ best friend. Launch Streets from “Maps” for any location. View the Street View panorama and tap right back.
If you’re already using our location finder app Where To?, you’ll also be able to take advantage of tight integration with Streets to view your location and snap right back when you’re done.
Drop a pin, search for a city or address or find a person from your contacts. All areas with Street View coverage are marked in blue on the map. The map featuring high resolution Google vector map and satellite imagery can be rotated and tilted.
Your recent searches and the selected map style are all saved, synced and shared with all your iOS devices via iCloud.
EASY TO USE
If you can swipe, you’ll be all right. Just use your favorite gestures to zoom around the Street View panorama. Flip your iPhone or iPad to easily rotate from portrait to landscape and back again. By the way: Compared to the Google Maps app, Streets offers a considerably higher resolution and zoom depth!
The mini map corner displays your current position, viewing angle and field of view.
Share Street View panorama pictures via Mail, text message, Twitter and Facebook with your friends or save them in the camera roll or clipboard. By tapping the title bar you’ll reveal the Street View image date.
700+ GALLERY PLACES
Explore more than 700 “gallery places” worldwide – museums, ski resorts and even underwater attractions. There are even indoor multi-level panoramas to make it easy to find your way around museums and more!

If you like Streets, please consider writing a short review. That helps us a lot. Thanks!
Waste of money - marketed as companion to new Apple Maps app but does not tie into it and simply uses similar user interface of previous app (i.e. curled R lower "paper" border) but the street view functionality is clunky, advances poorly when one tries to move down a street, and does not spot advance when one taps further up a road like the current Google Maps, though it does use it's current graphics. If u like Apple Map's current TomTom-powered user interface/graphics (which is crisper and more intuitive than Google's in my opinion), then use it and go to the Google Maps App for Street View or when Apple Maps is wrong about an address or phone number, which it still occasionally is. I rarely write a bad review, but here I really do feel like I've been cheated.
Outdoor resolution is great! Indoor resolution of smaller things requiring very high resolution like paintings not so good but maybe they'd be better on a different screen. I used an iPod touch. But indoor resolution of room and objects in the room at Everest monastery was like I was there! Looking forward to increasing technology as I'm disabled and cannot travel.
Best street view app I've found so far. Resolution of street views are better than Google's. User interface is great. Ties in with apples map application. That part is a little clunky but it works app still gets five stars.
