How to use Google Streetview on the iPhone

Since Google Streetview launched in South Africa earlier this week, I have had a couple of people ask me how to use it on the iPhone.It isn’t that obvious and even I struggled the first time.So I thought I would quickly share on how to do it.

1. Open the Maps Application on your iPhone

2. Search for your location using the GPS button (Blue button in the bottom left) or using the search bar. You can also click the “fold” button on the bottom right, and tap “Drop Pin” which you can move around

3. Once the pin has been dropped, you will be presented with an information bar. On the left of that bar is an Orange Man. Click the Orange man, and you will be presented with Google Stretview. If it is greyed out, then it means Streetview is not available.
