Share pinned locations with other users?

I am currently working through the MyLocations tutorial in the iOS Apprentice book and I am curious if it is possible to add an interesting capability:

I am curious if it is possible to create a back-end, perhaps using Firebase, where the pinned locations are able to be shared with other users of the app. In other words, if I opened the map to see my previously pinned locations, I would also be able to see other users’ pinned locations and the description that they added when they categorized the location.

Is this possible? If so, any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hey, anything is possible. :slight_smile:

You would need some kind of back-end indeed. You’ll probably want to query pins based on your current location only, not all pins of everyone in the whole world.

Exactly how to do this totally depends on your choice of backend technology.
