Is it possible to use Googles entries?


(Kevin Gilner) #1

Hello,
I have a question. Is it possible to check if a geopoint is near a Google entry (like Starbucks, for example) so I can show in my app that a person is currently at Starbucks?

Hello Kevin

No, you should use google api for that, on the client you already have current user location and you can use Google Places Api for retrieve all nearby geo points.
Otherwise, if you want to use Backendless as a Places Search engine, you must have stored all the entries (like Starbucks) in your Backendless App and then use our api https://backendless.com/docs/js/geo_radius_based_search.html to find the geo points
