On Android 4.4 and above users need to unhide Developer Settings by going to Settings- About (Device or Phone) and press 7 times on "Build" (some devices have it hidden under "Software information" or "Software information-More") before they can change the "Allow mock locations" options. If Google change it please take a few seconds to Google "How to enable Developer settings" before bad rating the app!
Fake Gps location so you can post on any app, website or service that uses your phone's locations. The app will overwrite your current location elegantly and the third party apps will think you are in Paris under the Eifel Tower or in New York on Times Square!
You must share your location with your friends, but the phone is almost dead, can't locate you or the GPS accuracy is bad? Or you need to geotag those old pictures for Instagram™ or for Facebook™? No problem, use our app!
Make sure to DISABLE HIGH ACCURACY LOCATION SETTINGS and leave "GPS only" enabled for best results!
On Samsung this will be called GPS Only on vanilla Android "Device only".

Important: as of Kitkat Android 4.4 and ABOVE the system folder is system/priv-app/ and the installed APK folder might not be /mnt/asec/ depending on the device
This is not a tutorial, it is one way of many on how to move the app!
1. Copy pkg.apk (or base.apk on some devices) in /mnt/asec/ (on some devices under data/app) to SDCard and rename it 'com.incorporateapps.fakepgs-1.apk' and move it to system/app or system/priv-app on 4.4+ above, remove the whole old app package folder from /mnt/asec or data/app and then reboot.
Make sure in ES File Explorer Root Explorer is enabled and Mount R/W is on RW!!!!
If you get a "parse error" make sure to change the permission to 777 and change the owner to system and reboot or Google how to move mnt/asec apps to system/app
Parse errors when moved as system app example fix:
Paid apps are encrypted under /mnt/asec, but on some devices the app might be under /data/app (or search for the package via the explorer search)! Contact us to assist you if need be!
