Android locator ohbulan

 

In my application I would like to determine the user's current location. I do however have a couple of questions in this regard:

Could you please provide me with some code-snippets or tutorials on how to get started with implementing GPS functionality in my application?

gps –> (GPS, AGPS): Name of the GPS location provider. This provider determines location using satellites. Depending on conditions, this provider may take a while to return a location fix. Requires the permission android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.

I have installed a few Android applications both with the adb install MyApplication.apk command and via a webserver (like an alternative to Android Market).

But where in the Android file system on my phone is the MyApplication.apk file placed? Are applications installed with adb install not placed in the same directory as applications downloaded from the Market?

I found some applications on /system/app but I can't recognize them as some downloaded from Android Market or the one I have installed with adb install .

Knowing a user’s location in an Android app can be extremely useful. Users take their devices everywhere and are constantly using them on the go, and as developers we can capitalize on that by providing a more contextual experience based on their current location.

Accessing the current location of an Android device is easier than ever, but it can still be a little tricky, especially for the first time. What follows is a guide on the very basics of retrieving a user’s current location and displaying it with a marker on a map. The project files for this project are available on GitHub , but follow along and in a few minutes we’ll build a super simple location finder!

This is a somewhat complex topic in Android, but these step-by-step guidelines should explain everything you need. If you would like to learn more about the fundamentals of Android programming that lead up to this, please check out my Android Development Track on Treehouse.

Android device owners that use location-related services and apps a lot, and would like to track and access their own location for a change , can do so on Google Maps by going to location history.

One reddit thread discusses how Android device users can view their location history “minute-by-minute” by going to this Google Maps URL: maps.google.com/locationhistory . There, you can browse location history by day, which should show up on a map, assuming that you have location services enabled on your device.

Because Google does the actual tracking of your location, you’d have to agree to Google monitoring that data for you in order for the service to work. Otherwise, you’ll get a blank map, as shown below:
