Advice on Google Maps and Typeform

From a StackShare Community member: "We're a team of two starting to write a mobile app. The app will heavily rely on maps and this is where my partner and I are not seeing eye-to-eye. I would like to go with an open source solution like OpenStreetMap that is used by Apple & Foursquare. He would like to go with Google Maps since more apps use it and has better support (according to him). Mapbox is also an option but I don鈥檛 know much about it."

Google Maps

Google Maps is best because it is practically free (they give you $300 in free credits per month and it's really hard to go over the free tier unless you really mean business) and it's the best!

    Review of
    Typeform

    Typeform is the best form design sass product in the market in terms of design. One thing that I decided not use it for a client project is it doesn't webhooks natively. You need to integrate with Zapier for the webhooks.

    Google Maps

    We need to integrate maps in mobile Apps and Web frontend to show where an event is taking place. Maps is best because of it's international availability and the google api with a feature to recursive search.

    Location, location, location. Choropleths are hot for a reason. When dealing with geography and housing why stop at bar charts, the map really makes my data quickly comprehensible to humans.
