The Google Places Web Service is a service that returns information about a "place": an establishment, a geographic location, or prominent point of interest using an HTTP request. Place requests specify locations as latitude/longitude coordinates.
Two basic Place requests are available: a Place Search request and a Place Details request. Generally, a Place Search request is used to return candidate matches, while a Place Details request returns more specific information about a Place.
The following is a list of libraries from ProgrammableWeb's Library Directory that matched your search term. Although there many different interpretations of the word "library" among software developers, ProgrammableWeb adheres to a specific definition so as to clearly distinguish libraries from SDKs and frameworks in a way that will facilitate clean search results. In ProgrammableWeb's parlance, the term "library" is strictly used to describe a platform-specific software tool that, when installed, results in the provisioning a specific API. Conversely, SDKs are exclusively for consuming APIs and Frameworks are agnostic to specific APIs. If you think a library, SDK, API, or other asset is missing from our directory, be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
This is an Android wrapper library for the Google Places API created by Greg Marzouka. It can interact with the API functions of reference, localization, and mapping. It could be useful to create location awareness, search everywhere, and autocomplete as stated on the official Google Places API site. This site provides a link to display a showcase to discover Google Places API implementation. Author Greg Marzouka is on Twitter @gregmarzouka
The Google Places iOS library by Lukas Kukacka uses a simple block interface to interact with the features of the API that include mapping, localization, and reference. This project offers place search, with nearby search and text search. It also provides places details, with a more detailed information about a specific location. Available as CocoaPods.
