We're a small start up company involved in a new recycling technology. Our expertise is not in IT. We're using a developer to provide an app for customers. They have advised we need both places and maps Api's so a customer registration form will autocomplete. We understood that we only need the places API for autocompleting the address in the registration form in the app.

Given we are only trying to make sure we don't overspend, can anybody let us know

  1. Can we use Places API solely for a registration form?
  2. Why would we need both maps and Places API's?

We have no map function in the app, and there will be no navigation to locations through our app. We only want to pick up the users address when they try to register with us.

Super grateful for all answers
