Streets 4.0: Street View App Adds Drag and Drop and Live Panorama Mode

Share

Streets, the popular Street View browser app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, is now available in version 4. The major update adds drag and drop on iPad and a new Live Panorama mode allowing to look around in a panorama simply by rotating the device.

Streets is focused on delivering the best Street View browsing experience. The user can navigate to any 360° panorama simply by dropping a pin on the map or by searching for an address or contact. A selection of more than 2000 spectacular locations such as national parks, museums, and underwater panoramas are available in a gallery as well. Panorama coverage is visualized with a blue map overlay and favorite panoramas can be organized in folders.

New in Streets 4 on iPad, panorama locations can also be set via drag and drop. The user can drag a pin location from the Maps app, a contact, or a textual address into the Streets app to find nearby panoramas. Even geotagged photos can be dropped in Streets to find 360° spherical images near the photo location.

Street View panoramas and map locations can also be shared with other apps using drag and drop. For instance, the user can attach a Street View panorama of a meeting place to an email or note. Or the user can drag a panorama or map location into the Maps app to get directions.

With the new Live Panorama mode, virtually traveling abroad is even more immersive and fun. Turning around in the panoramic scene works by simply rotating the device.

Streets 4 is optimized for iOS 11 and fully supports the iPhone X, in either portrait or landscape orientation.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said.
Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London.
Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both. Please contact her at: joanne@theappwhisperer.com
