Or at least it’ll be deprecated and out of the picture since 2010, but it’ll be officially removed May 19th, 2013.
You should definitely head over and get to version 3.0 before that time:
Thanks to Ipstenu for the share on make.plugins and for letting us know.
Are you currently one of the developers who are using the Google Maps API? What have you created? What are you planning on creating?
I personally think that geolocation has gotten a bad rap within the last few years as people were inundated with “geo-location apps” and you began hearing about “hyper-local” this and that. Honestly, the world got a little fatigued with it all and the rise and fall of the “daily deals” movement didn’t help much.
But I still think there’s plenty of room for crazy innovation on the geolocation front – these services just need to be intuitive, easy to understand, and most importantly they need to be insanely useful, not just fun or intriguing.
Will it be you? Make it real!
