What happened to the ability to rotate views using "bird's eye view". That was a great feature.

Without that feature I see no reason to use Zillow for my home search.

You missed the point.  When the birds eye view moved from the bottom of the home details page, to the top of the page, the drop down menu for the birds eye options disappeared, as well as the rotation arrows and compass.  Only the north facing view is available now.  The other 3 options, one presently has to go to Microsoft Bing to get.

I believe the programmers are aware of this "bug" they introduced and are working to correct it.

Zillow posted on another thread that a home-details page update is scheduled for the night of August 15, 2012.  They didn't mention if this is one of the items being fixed or not.

In the mean time, one can go direct to the source of the Birds Eye views:  Microsoft Bing.com

zillow response misses point; we want the ability to ROTATE the pics back; not just the bird's eye view. Zillow, pls respond.
