Announcing the Google Places Extension!
Have you ever needed to get a user to select a place in your app? or maybe a suburb or area? Well now you can achieve this using the Google Places API, I have developed an extension to make it easier to get started using Google Places in your app.
The Google Places API has a couple different endpoint that can be used as follows:
- PlacesAutocomplete API - As a user types into a search box you can automatically use this to load suggestions
- PlaceDetails API - Returns detail information about the particular business or location the user has selected
- PlaceSearch API - Enables you to search for a business or location based on a users location or specified latitude and longitude coordinates
I recommend using this extension with my JSONToolsExtension for an easier implementation, and you can view my example project to see how to integrate it correctly.
