Feature Request Is it possible to use root to force turning Location services ON? I always have it off, and would like the app to automatically turn it on when tracking the phone.

4 for now Will give for stars for now. I like the fact I can make it a system application unlike Airdroid. Will rate 5 if it works if I ever have to use it in a real situation. +1
