Android locator 0ngame

 

My android (2.1) phone (a HTC Wildfire, if that matters) sometimes reboots without an apparent reason. Not extremely frequently, but too much to simply ignore it.
I'd say once every couple of days.

It always happens when I'm not using the phone, I take it out of my pocket and am greeted by the SIM unlock screen, so it's hard to pinpoint the app or service that is causing it.

I browsed the filesystem a bit but couldn't immediately find anything like /var/log , so I wonder if anyone knows where logfiles are located, if they exist at all?

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.

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.
