Author Photo It’s Friday everyone, and in California it’s turning into spring. Warm, longer days make for fun outdoor adventures during the day, and cozy nights making maps. OK, seriously, get out there and have some fun.

Here’s a video to warm up your nights. In this Shortcut, Paul Saxman shows you how to quickly take data from Google Drive and load it onto your Android app that uses Google Maps Android API V2. He also put the code up on github so you can quickly get started.

Next week, I’m going to be doing a Shortcut on incorporating the Google Geocoding API into an iOS app that uses the Google Maps SDK for iOS. Please join me on Tuesday.

Have a great weekend everyone!
