This application persistently keeps GPS connected even when the screen turns off. That way you will not lose gps fix when your phone goes to sleep.
The application is very useful when you are using any application that uses GPS, such as Google Maps, Geocaching, …
For some phones, the app even makes the GPS refresh faster so you are getting better location informations and better accuracy. Please keep in mind that this happens only on some phones!
Of course, when you are using this app, GPS is constantly connected so the battery might get depleted faster.
Application requires some permissions. Let me explain why:
♦ Fine GPS location: Well, you want it to access GPS, right? 🙂
♦ Full internet access and Network state: For Google AdMob
♦ Modify system settings: To get background image of the phone. I do understand that this is not logical and I agree, but the app crashes without this permission on some phones 😦
This application might not work with all the phones, as some of the manufacturers modify the Android in a way that disables the application to function properly. That kind of behaviour has been noticed on, but not limited to, some Alcatel phones.
In case of bugs:
Every application sooner or later has a bug. If you find one, please inform me so I can solve the issue. You can also contact me if you have suggestion for improving the app. I will gladly listen to your suggestions!
If you want to post negative comments, PLEASE CONTACT ME FIRST on email@example.com so we can solve the issue(or add a feature). Please do not use comments to report issues or ask questions as I will most probably notice them way slower than if you send me an email.
If you want to help me by translating the app to other language, please contact me!
Please keep in mind that application is provided “AS-IS”. It should not be relied on to and I shall not be responsible for any problem/expense/life threatening situation it could cause.
Since I got some similar requests, let me outline the answer here: I strongly support user privacy in all my apps and I oppose to any kind of control over the users, regardless if they are friends or employees. I am not interested in implementing any kind of stealth mechanisms in the app, like hiding of app icon or remote control!!
