Taichung City, Taiwan – With the release of iOS 6, Apple makes a big change to the Maps app. Although it has the cool 3D-view and navigation features, we lost the Street View functions. Fortunately, Google still operates the Maps API so that developers can continue to make apps from it, which also comes with Street View functionalities. This article introduces an app “WhatsGoLa”, comes with a paid and a free version, that continues to give you the Street View functions.

WhatsGoLa is a photography app which lets you virtually travel the world by superimposing photos. The tool “WhatsGoLa Camera” shows a map on the screen to let you find scenery images from a given location. If Street View is available in this area, you may also open the street view – powered by Google Maps API.

If you like the street view, just tap the shutter button. Then you can choose to save the photo to the iDevice or continue to superimpose. Browsing Panoramio scenery photos is also one of the features to visit the world. All above can be done by the free (and NO AD) version. As this article only focuses on the Street View usage, we won’t mention too many other functions in this app. If you are interested, you may visit the official website for more details.

The paid version even includes a database with more than 1000 famous points of interests, including the Google Street View Collections. The Street View page is also integrated with Gyroscope, which simulate taking photos on the streets.

In a few weeks, we will soon be releasing the next version 1.3, which will include these functions:
* Bookmark the locations
* Share the location by email
* Show website for the POI if available

Device Requirements:
* iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, 3/4/5G iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
* 8.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
WhatsGoLa 1.2 is $2.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Photo & Video category. A standalone app “WGL Camera” will also be released soon.
