So I’ve just started Chapter 19 and got as far as the first time you run the app after adding the code to categorise your bookmarks. Everything is working fine except that everywhere I bookmark is categorised as “other”.
I set the app to debuggable and set a break point in MapsViewModel.getPlaceCategory on the return line. I have found that everywhere I click to bookmark, the val placeTypes is set to null. Is it the case that Place.type is now obsolete and the categorisation of the bookmarks will not work? I have tried places that are parts of big chains like Burger King, and not only tried places in the UK but places in the US too and all return null for place type.
