I'm currently building a search box for a mobile app that can search for a Country/ State/ Country. I'm currently looking for APIs that can support this... An option for me would be the Google Places API but as much as possible I don't want to use Google for my project.

So before I import the Bing SDK into my project, I'm curious if anyone knows if this is possible with Bing API.

    Hello @Hope estheim ,

    You mention downloading an SDK, may I ask what platform you are targeting? Note that you can try Bing Maps Autosuggest at https://www.bing.com/api/maps/sdkrelease/mapcontrol/isdk specifically under the left menu topic "Services" https://www.bing.com/api/maps/sdkrelease/mapcontrol/isdk/autosuggestui.

    Sincerely,
    IoTGirl
