According to the Wall Street Journal, Google are planning to add the Street View feature we all know from the desktop site, to their web app, which will of course be accessible on an iOS device.

According to the site, the feature will be rolled out to the app this Thursday, as an obvious pull to the company’s Maps application and away from the Apple Maps application we have all be hating on since it’s launch.

This will allow users to move along roads and explore areas they may be visiting at street level, allowing them to get a better look around a place before visiting.

According to Walt Mossberg, who wrote the article, “Google plans to announce on Thursday that it is adding its popular Street View feature, missing from Apple’s maps, to the Web version of Google Maps accessed from the iPhone and iPad.”

After which he goes on to say:

“I tested this addition, which displays 360-degree photographic street views of selected locations, and interior photographic views of certain businesses, using sample links Google sent me. These links worked well, allowing me to see the locations and pan around with a finger.”

Obviously we are just taking Mossberg’s word on this currently, but if you where going to take anyone’s I would advice a journalist from The Wall Street Journal.
