Google today announced it is turning off the Google Maps API for Flash on September 2, 2014. The move is in line with the three-year deprecation period: the API was officially deprecated on September 2, 2011.

In other words, developers who haven’t moved on now don’t have a choice. Google is encouraging anyone with an app that uses the old API to migrate their code to version 3 of the Google Maps JavaScript API.
