Google Places API for Android Samples

Samples that use the Google Places API for Android.

This repo contains the following samples:

  1. PlacePicker: Uses the PlacePicker widget and the Geo Data API to select a place and retrieve its details.
  2. PlaceCompleteActivity: Uses an Intent to open a fullscreen autocomplete widget from the Place Autocomplete API.
  3. PlaceCompleteFragment: Uses a widget (PlaceAutocompleteFragment) provided by the Place Autocomplete API to display autocomplete suggestions.
  4. PlaceCompleteAdapter: Implements an Android AutoCompleteTextView backed by the Place Autocomplete API.

Note that each folder contains a distinct sample and must be imported separately.
