Google Maps Licensing question

Hello Verivo Support - We wanted to understand the Google Maps licensing involved when we use Google maps from a Verivo app. We currently use it in our iPad as well as BB apps. We use the click to Map as well as invoking Google maps via a URL. There have been some changes to Google Maps licensing recently and we would like to know how it might impact us when we are using it through Verivo app.

    Hello Ram,

    Google’s release doesn't impact our Maps integration, software, or licensing in any way. If you need further information, feel free to reach out to Google: https://developers.google.com/maps/licensing

    Regards,

    John

    John - I couldn't figure out much from the google licensing page link you posted. What I wanted to understand was if our intranet app built using Verivo that invokes Google Maps in Safari (we build a URL within the app like this-> maps.google.com/maps?q=<address>) requires any licensing arrangement with google? From what I understand, it appears that we do not since ours is an intranet application.

    The other way we use google maps from our verivo app is via the click to map functionality which used Google Maps as the iOS native mapping platform prior to iOS 6.0. I think this is covered with Apple's licensing with Google.

    Hi Ram,

    The mapping service is provided by Google and all we do is use their API to invoke their map through our app. What your company intends to do with their service would need to be addressed with them as their licensing and terms of service is outside of our software.

    Thanks,

    -John
