  • Develop

With the Google Maps and Places APIs for Android, your app can be location-aware, include data-rich maps, find relevant places nearby, and more.

Why it works

Integrating maps, 3D buildings, indoor floor plans, Street View imagery, satellite imagery, and custom markers into your Android app gives users the kind of relevant information that they need and expect. You can boost on-the-go usability further by implementing device place detection and auto-complete and by adding up-to-date information about millions of locations.
