Google API Announcements from Google I/O 2012

Last week we attended Google's developer conference, along with over 5,000 others. The company was so rife with announcements that many didn't make it to the keynote stage.

Google Takes Places Public with Needed Features and 100,000 Daily Calls

Google has now made its closely-guarded Google Places API available to all developers, after nearly a year in closed beta. The API, first announced a year ago, returns business listings based on location. The search giant also added features that make the service useful for many types of local applications, in addition to simplifying the authentication process. With additional agreements, Google also allows for a healthy 100,000 queries, versus only 1,000 standard calls.
