Google's new Street View app now available for iOS and Android users; contribute your own photo spheres
Google's Street View can send you on a virtual trip to just about anywhere. Want to take a "walk" down Times Square, or see what it feels like to window shop down Rodeo Drive? Street View can do this. And not only can you experience the 360 degree images, with the new Google Street Views app, you can contribute your own photo spheres to Google Maps.

Available for iOS and Android users, the Street View app allows you to view content from Google Maps and photo spheres sent in by others. You can use your iPhone or Android camera to take these 360-degree panoramas, or sync with specialty spherical snappers like the Ricoh Theta S, or NCTech iris360.

The new Street View app takes the place of the Photo Sphere Camera app for iPhones, and the Street View from Google Maps app on Android phones. The app is a free download from the App Store and the Google Play Store. So download the app, and visit those places you've always dreamed of seeing. You won't be bogged down by the crowd at the airport, there are no suitcases to pack and lose, and you will be back in time for dinner.
