  • Put Geo Searching and Maps in your Mobile Apps

    Many businesses have multiple sites, and would like users of their mobile apps to quickly list or search for them, especially relative to the user’s location. But rather than create a new database of multiple company sites for your mobile app, you can use Google Places to search, and Google Maps to show the results.

    ViziApps now makes it easy to integrate geo searching and mapping capability into your mobile apps. ViziApps has released a new template app called Google Places and Maps that shows you how to explore the rich searching capabilities of Google Places.

    Read our new guides to learn how to do it at the ViziApps Wiki:

    Searching and Mapping

    Google Places has a rich set of information that can be queried, including location, search radius, keyword, and category. As a mobile app designer, you can preset any of the parameters, have the user enter search information, or dynamically determine search parameters.

    Results of searches can be shown in a table listing, or rendered as pins directly on a map.

    Geo Search

    In addition to searching, Google Places offers detailed information about each site, such as phone number, website URL, ratings, and photos. ViziApps enables you to get this information and present it to the mobile app user in any format that you like.

    The new template app even shows you how to present the user with directions, Street View, and more. Your app may not need the full accuracy and power consumption of GPS, so ViziApps also provides a Quick Location capability so your app is responsive to the user.
