    Hi...

    I was culling some apps from my phone and noticed I had "Places" and "Places Directory" I think they are both written by Google. I can't (unless I do something fancy) uninstall Places but I can do so with Places Directory.

    Anyway, was wondering the difference between the two?? Apps seem to overla but Places Directory seems to including EVERYTHING from Places but more. Are there other nuances anyone has noticed?? I know I can just go through both apps and test them out but was a little short on time and if someone already took notice, thought I'd ask...

    THANKS!!

    Google replaced "Places Directory" by integrating "Places" into the Maps application. So, I believe the Places Directory app will not be updated anymore.

    That said, I personally keep both. The function is the same, but I like the interface of Places Directory better. It's a matter of preference.

    If you are low on space though, they do the same thing so you can eliminate it.

    After my post, my research kinda led me to believe that Places Directory wasn't available anymore. But like you said I DO like the interface. It does seem that it has "more" than the Places but probably everything is just "somewhere else" now in the Google Maps/Places currently with the phone.

    Thanks...
