Google are set to announce an addition to their Street View for iOS web app for Google Maps. The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg reported the news during his comparison of Apple's Mapps app, versus Google's app on their Android OS.

Mossberg tested the two apps against each other on their respective mobile operating systems, and even had access to the new tech as Google sent him sample links, where he said they "worked well", where he was able to pan around environments with his finger.

Google's timing is great, as consumers are simply not happy with Apple's lacklustre Maps app. This stop-gap measure of a web app might help them for now, but it would be nice to have a native app you can download from the App Store, but I really doubt we'll see Apple allow this, ever.
