Location Cache

Location Cache


ROOT REQUIRED
DOES NOT WORK ON ICS and UP (Android 4.X), and it never will


You probably heard that the iPhone caches the devices location.
The same happens on Android.

This app allows you to look at the data on your device in an easy way.
You can see directly on a map what positions have been cached.

If it doesn't find any informations you most likely turned of "Use wireless networks" under "Location & Security" settings.

Features
- view list
- view on map
- export gpx file
- delete cache (can not be undone)
- delete and block (use wireless for location keeps working but no data will be cached on the disk)

Premissions
- INTERNET needed for the map (no internet = no map)
- WRITE EXTERNAL MEDIA (SD) needed for GPX export to the SDCard


- Use the red buttons on your own risk!
- Source code is on github (website link below)
- The screenshots are blurred for privacy reasons!
- If you have Force Closes please report them directly via Mail with logcat output.
- Force closes on the map are due to broken Google Maps Libraries on your device. Update your ROM/Gapps!

Recent changes:
- map shows now the accuracy of the points
- minor bugfixes and changes

Slow but interesting. Would be nice if it remembers SSID's too.

interesting, I've used gps many times such as with google maps, but this app found nothing. i do have location turned off and as google settings in google play services app tells me, there's no location data for me. of course this doesn't block NSA back doors that have been found on phones. NSA or FBI doesn't need them because even with Russia warning us about the Boston bombers, they still let then slide thru their fingers. as to why? if you have to ask, your never going to know. ps, this isn't my phone. thank you, interesting app.

Doesn't do anything And nothing is disabled either. It's just a waste of memory to keep it running for nothing.
