Longing for the grand old days of iOS 5 when Google's Street View was baked right into the Maps app? You may not be able to go back in time, but for only 99 cents you can get Street View back with Streets 2.0.
FutureTap announced the release of Streets 2.0 on Wednesday, a rebranding of the company's Street View which introduces a trio of big changes. The first big change in Streets 2.0 is the introduction of a blue overlay to indicate street view coverage. No more guesswork! Blue and orange dots will also indicate user-contributed panoramas or businesses with indoor panoramas, respectively.
Streets 2.0 now uses Google's vector maps and high-resolution satellite imagery in place of the stock iOS Maps, while offering even greater resolution and a wider zoom range for panoramas than the official Google Maps app.
Last but not least, panoramas can be shared with friends via email, iMessage, Facebook or Twitter, or even saved to the Camera Roll for future use, complete with geolocation data.
Streets 2.0 is now available from the App Store; the universal app features an introductory price of only 99 cents through the end of July, after which time it will return to the normal price of $1.99.
