Google Maps APIs are going
« on: December 10, 2015, 01:23:43 PM »
I see that Google is going to discontinue the old Maps Api at the end on January.

Do they work from Safari? Otherwise I'd say any apps that use that API version are going to be gone :(

Haven't tried, but if they do they will be extremely slow and won't offer the same level of functionality, no doubt.
