Google Street View Imagery Now Available Using New Standalone App for Android and iOS

From Google’s LatLong Blog:

2015-09-03_12-08-59Today we are introducing the new Street View app for Android and iOS, which allows you for the first time, to tour immersive 360-degree imagery and instantly contribute your own — right to Google Maps.


Starting today, the Street View app will replace the Photo Sphere Camera app for iPhones and the Street View from Google Maps app on Android phones. It is available for download on iTunes and Google Play.
Apple is known to have been working on its own Street View rival for Apple Maps since June. But as Apple was only just getting started, Google was that same month recording its first-ever vertical Street View imagery.
