Sample App: US Zip Codes

I found a database of US zip codes that’s free for commercial use:
https://simplemaps.com/data/us-zips
It includes related data, like population, density, timezone, lat, long, etc.

I decided to build it into a quick sample app:

https://www.appsheet.com/samples/Sample-app-with-US-zip-codes?appGuidString=d6ab1dec-d053-4920-9c74-fc205df266d0

Feel free to copy and use the zip codes in your app.

NOTE: The Simple Maps site asks that you link back to them somewhere in your app.

That’s fun, thanks for posting this resource.
Side note: you should turn on the pin grouping.

Good call, @Grant_Stead. Fixed!

Thank you @GreenFlux.
I especially like the use of the VC “SelfRef” :wink:
As far as I understand you are using it to get the image and zip together in the header column?

Very clever :slight_smile:

Thanks! :grin: Yes, the “SelfRef” VC shows both the labels for the current record as if it were a child record.

So both the Text-Label and Image-Label show together as a single value, instead of in separate columns.
