Have High Hopes that this app can be Great again!
Like many, I got this app to fill a need when Apple yanked Google Maps.
When I first got it, it worked brilliantly, with no problems. The street views were in a little window, but on my iPad they looked great, and I could navigate around them well. The movements were all smooth and fast.
Now that they do show in full screen, they don't change as smoothly and yes, often crash. It is a shame.
Did this app always feature the compass gimmick? I don't remember it in the version I got originally.
ALSO, it would be nice if the meaning and function of the icons, specifically the compass and the GPS, were immediately obvious, or that instructions for them were easier to see. I had to go into the sub-basement of the help files to find exactly what these 2 buttons do.
As my title suggests, though, I trust that the app can get these glitches ironed out, since it did work very well when I first got it.
Please work to make Live Street View once again the brilliant app I was so impressed with!
This app does an ok job at best in giving a.. well.. street level view. I gave it 2 stars because this app continuously crashes when attempting to scroll down a street and I'm using "The New iPad" (iPad 3rd Gen). Plus when searching for an address works great but when a location is found it only gives you a small window to navigate in and I have not found a "full screen button" and there is no search bar for the main screen. So in order for me to have a full screen street view I had to use the pre-loaded 'Maps' app to get a general location of the area and keep swapping back and forth between apps 'til I found the street I was looking for. But again when I go to scroll down the street the app crashes and when I tap on it, the map reset its self and I am forced to look for it again... But when it does work properly I get clear, crisp pictures. Just wish I didn't have to go through all of that rigmarole...
Sweet! And very cool!
Visually, this app is amazing. On my iPad 3, the clarity is outstanding, and the terrain that it covers leaves almost nothing to be desired. And yes, there IS full screen imagery. And another really cool thing is that the images rotate automatically when you hold the iPad up in front of you.
I'm faulting it for one reason only, and thus the missing fifth star. It crashes every once in a while in the middle of cruising along a roadway. Don't know why but it is a bit frustrating. On the whole though, it's worth a lot more that a buck.
