Can't understand how to show the nearest places in appinventor. I need help immediately
Is it possible to make a function on appinventor which detects the nearest restaurants or anything else?
I think you need a list of point locations that interest you. Then you compare your location with this list and display the points that are not far away.
The simplest way to find the nearest restaurants is to use the ActivityStarter to search as shown in the following link Is there any way to implement Place Types in App Inventor?
Does this work for you?
Another example using a LocationSensor with the ActivityStarter
@SteveJG i am not sure but this is not the thing he asked
If you type restaurant near me in the TextBox in the ActivityStarter example that shows a TextBox, the ActivityStarter will provide a map and a Listing of restaurants near him. Sagnik can type pet shops or hospitals and it will display them too.
these are showing results in google maps am i right
yes, it displays in Google map. If he has a List of the restaurants and their locations, he can use the example dora posted.
I think Sagnik can decide what he means?
okay got your point
@SteveJG i want to ask some of my doubts in pm can i ask

I ended up using location sensor and webviewer LOL
