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
These days it might be hard to remember that the Yahoo Maps API was ever second fiddle to the Google Maps API. These days, it barely picks up its fiddle. And in less than two weeks, Yahoo will lift its once-mighty mapping API above its head and bang the fiddle repeatedly into the stage like Pete Townshend. The remnants, barely held together with strings and the crumpled instrument neck, will then go in some dumpster in Sunnyvale. It's okay, after all, because Nokia's Ovi Maps API will be a fine replacement. It's only the nostalgic, like me, who'll have any problem with seeing the Yahoo name disappear.
