Does map api key cause any problems if using on more phones?

Postby mistajase » Fri Apr 02, 2010 2:00 am

I've almost finished my map but i want to field test it before I put it on the market.

my app has a buddy system which friends can lay markers on the map for each other to find.

every thing looks like its working my my phone and i want to test it on other phones simultaneously to check that the buddy system is work correctly.

can i do this using my own api key on about 3 different handsets? or am I limited to just 1 phone?

Hello mistajase,

If you distribute your generated .apk file to your friends for testing, you should be just fine. That said, you WILL need to have two different keys if you are switching between an emulator and a real phone.

If anything is unclear to you, let me know, and I will see if I can clarify.

Good Luck!
