Developers for the Japanese perfume designer Issey Miyake have built a unique app that allows anyone to leave a personal message for someone else on any of the millions of Google Street View images that wait in the search giant’s photo archives. Whether it’s a love note or a “hello” greeting or an “I miss you” message, users can add their personalized text to a gorgeous Street View image from around the world and share it with their friends using Facebook or Twitter. “Please the World is a fun little application that allows anyone to type in a message and then to leave it on Google Maps Street View at any location,” according to Google Maps Mania. “Once you have left your message, you can then go on a little balloon journey courtesy of Issey Miyake’s Escape application. After you share your location with this app, you can view an animation of a balloon taking off from your home, with a little help of Google Maps satellite view, and then watch as it ascends through the clouds.”
