Street View has always been a separate file on your Android device — it even gets its own Play Store listing — but up until now, you got to it through the Maps app.

All that’s changing with version 2.0, which has a shiny new icon all to itself. Not only does the app let you look at standard Street View imagery, but it also lets you browse all the 360-degree photo-bubbles Google has slowly been integrating into Maps. You can even make your own — as long as you’ve got a phone with a gyroscope, Street View will walk you through making your own photosphere.

You can grab the update from the Google Play Store (the previous version should already be installed on your handset), or download the APK from here.
