Google still cares about iPhone and iPad users. The search giant today added Street View functionality to the mobile web-based version of its Google Maps service, a week earlier than anticipated. The feature is easy to use. Visit maps.google.com on your mobile browser, enter an address, and you'll see blue version of the Street View icon on the bottom right. Click that and a new page will open with Street View where you can swipe around to view the location.
This, along with the ability to make the web app act like a real, native app, should satisfy most users until Google comes through with the official Google Maps iOS 6 app.
