In Restaurant Reviews with Maps, U.S. locations are automatically added to a map when you provide the address. That’s possible thanks to the geocoder.us database. Unfortunately, as some of you outside the U.S. have found, a similar database is not readily available for the rest of the world.
If you have a great idea for a version of Anytown Marketplace for your city or group and want to get the word out, let me know. Once you’ve created it, we’ll be more than happy to run a small Google AdWords advertising program for a few weeks on your behalf.
Just drop me a note at ceo at ning dot com.
Let me say upfront that we love Craigslist. It is a fantastic service and, living in such major metropolitan areas as San Francisco and New York, we are huge fans.
Thanks to lupus63, we tracked down a lurking bug that messed up non-ASCII characters in form fields inside forms containing file-upload fields. Those of you that have cloned Anytown Listings and want to have item descriptions in Français, Русски, or another language using non-ASCII characters might have noticed this already. The fix will be deployed in our downtime tonight (actually tomorrow morning). Expect a post from Alexei in a bit on the exact timing.
Jonathan Aquino has updated both the Restaurant Reviews and the Restaurant Reviews with Maps Example Apps so when you clone these apps, you can choose from an assortment of different header colors with a click of a button!

My name is Yoz Grahame and I’m one of the Developer Advocates here at Ning. Given that I’m in the U.K. and recently returned from a trip to Israel, I was voted “Most Qualified (At This Particular Moment) To Talk About International App Support” by the rest of my Ning teammates.
