Street view panoramas coming to iPhone OS - 10/06/08 06:26 PM

Maybe in version 2.2, maybe after, but the feature has been discovered lurking in the code:<br><br>http://www.macrumors.com/2008/10/06/ipho...correction-off/<br><br>I always assumed this was coming--Android has it for instance--but when? It's one of the coolest map features ever--and surprisingly useful when you need to be on the lookout for a certain turn or building. (Web-based Google Maps had this first, and apparently Google Earth too now--I'm downloading the latest update. And Google has been steadily expanding their coverage and quality--including the ability to look all the way up and down. How the heck do you get a spherical panorama from a moving vehicle??)<br><br>Most awesome of all: now I can be walking down the street, and my iPhone can show me what it would be like if I was walking down some totally OTHER street!!<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
