Hello Menion,

I've now found out a difference:

(1) If I create a point on the map of the app Google-Maps myself (longer pressure with my finger) and then go to Share, the address search in Locus will indeed open.
(2) But if I first search for a Google Place and then share this place from the search result itself, the address search doesn't open and I end up somewhere on the Locus map near Africa.

I understood the reasons, but still think it's a pity that the very practical Google search no longer exists. Especially during hikes and also when travelling with public transport, one could very quickly see where shopping possibilities, restaurants, overnight accommodations, ice cream parlours etc. are nearby. Is it possible that Locus users did not know this possibility and therefore did not use it?

Best regards

Joachim

Interesting ... and confirmed on my device. I'll look at it, thanks.

Please return search by Google Places back! I need it so badly. Have to stay on older version.

Sorry Vitold, from reasons above, not possible.
Expect that Google Places even in older versions stop work soon, sorry.

Hello,
unfortunately it is not possible to share places with Locus from Google-Maps even after the last update. You don't land anywhere on the African coast anymore, instead nothing happens on the map in Locus.
Greetings
Joachim Schmidt

Ah thanks, one small issue remained. So next version = next try.
