We have submitted yet another update to Apple this week, which includes orientation, iPad support, further improved turn by turn navigation and usage of multiple languages.

We are working on further features such as a traffic info layer, camera and weather info. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to mention them so we can take them into account for the next update!

1. Can you zoom while in street view and can you change to landscape position?

2. When dropping a pin on the map does it show the street name AND number like the old google maps?

3. Do you tap on the pin to get to street view (like in the old maps) or use that yellowish google dude that you have to move around?

You can't zoom in in street view yet. We will see what we can offer. The upcoming update will have landscape position as well as iPad high res support.

2. When dropping a pin on the map does it show the street name AND number like the old google maps?

No. Working on that.

3. Do you tap on the pin to get to street view (like in the old maps) or use that yellowish google dude that you have to move around?

You tap on the pin to get to street view, no yellowish dude :-)
