To say that Apple's new Maps app for iOS 6 have disappointed would be an understatement, but the Google Maps web app is one way to gain access to the former, more reliable data — and it just got more useful with the addition of Street View. You're now able to get a first-person look at your surroundings by tapping the little person-shaped icon at the bottom of the screen once you've searched for a location. Panning around the image works just as in the iOS 5 Maps app, though performance isn't quite as snappy as before. However, it'll probably be your best bet until Google manages to get its own native solution into the App Store.
