public class Location
extends Object implements Parcelable

A data class representing a geographic location. A location can consist of a latitude, longitude, timestamp, and other information such as bearing, altitude and velocity. All locations generated by the LocationManager are guaranteed to have a valid latitude, longitude, and timestamp (both UTC time and elapsed real-time since boot), all other parameters are optional.

Constant used to specify formatting of a latitude or longitude in the form "[+-]DDD:MM.MMMMM" where D indicates degrees and M indicates minutes of arc (1 minute = 1/60th of a degree).

If you are developing any location based app, you can make your app more smarter by finding user’s location automatically. For this you need to integrate location modules in your application. This tutorial covers how to integrate location module in your apps.

This tutorial uses older APIs to fetch user’s location. Now google introduced new way of getting user’s location using Google Play Services. Read Android Location API using Google Play Services to get the location using play services.

2 . Open AndroidManifest.xml and add ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION (Which includes both ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION and ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION). Also if you are getting network-based location then you need to add INTERNET permission too.

One of the unique features of mobile applications is location awareness. Mobile users take their devices with them everywhere, and adding location awareness to your app offers users a more contextual experience. The location APIs available in Google Play services facilitate adding location awareness to your app with automated location tracking, geofencing, and activity recognition.

The Google Play services location APIs are preferred over the Android framework location APIs ( android.location ) as a way of adding location awareness to your app. If you are currently using the Android framework location APIs, you are strongly encouraged to switch to the Google Play services location APIs as soon as possible.

This class shows you how to use the Google Play services location APIs in your app to get the current location, get periodic location updates, and look up addresses. The class includes sample apps and code snippets that you can use as a starting point for adding location awareness to your app.
