In a piece detailing Apple’s troubles with its new Maps app, The New York Times’ David Pogue outs that Google is bringing Street View to its mobile web app. The sharp eyes of Christian Zibreg at iDownloadblog picked this detail out of the article. The revelation comes in a passage about Google’s mobile app, which is still available to users of the iPhone: “You can still use Google’s maps — on the Web. Visit and accept the offer to create a Home-screen icon for you. You won’t get spoken directions, but you’ll get written directions, public transportation details, live traffic reports and, of course, Google’s far superior maps and data.” Read the full story at The Next Web.
