    Hi,

    We're a small start up in recycling, and our app developer has advised we need both places and maps api so a customer registration form will autocomplete. We understood that we only need the places API Given we are only trying to make sure we don't overspend, can anybody let us know

    1. Can we use Places API solely for a registration form
    2. Why would we need both maps and Places API's

    We have no map functioning the app and there will be no navigation to locations through our app. We only want to pick up the users address when they try to register with us.

    Thanks

    Hi Alexander,

    We were looking to know do we need to use places Api or google maps api, or both? or any. We're not technical and your link didn't work. We'd be very grateful for a more comprehensive reply that detailed what would be the best choice for us given we'll have a low volume of uses.
