This application persistently keeps GPS enabled even when the screen turns off. That way you will not lose gps fix when your phone goes to sleep.
Advantages from Lite version:
♦ No advertisements
♦ Notification displays satellite status and current location data
♦ Smaller size
♦ Custom tile, so you can start/stop the application same as you start/stop wifi
♦ Widget support, so you can start/stop the application from main screen
♦ App shutdown from notification bar(Android 4.2 and newer)
♦ Auto shutdown if screen is off for specified number of minutes
♦ Auto shutdown if battery gets below set percentage
♦ It can auto start on boot
♦ Less permissions needed
This application is very useful when you are using any application that uses GPS, such as Google Maps, Geocaching, ...
For some phones, the app even makes the GPS refresh faster so you are getting better location informations and better accuracy. Please keep in mind that this happens only on some phones!
Application requires some permissions. Let me explain why:
♦ Fine GPS location: Well, you want it to access GPS, right? :)
♦ Boot status: To be able to start at boot if set so in settings
♦ Modify system settings: To get background image of the phone. I do understand that this is not logical and I agree, but the app crashes without this permission on some phones :(
Of course, when you are using this app, GPS is constantly on so the battery might get depleted faster.
This application might not work with all the phones, as some of the manufacturers modify the Android in a way that disables the application to function properly. That kind of behaviour has been noticed on, but not limited to, some Alcatel phones.
Please test the Lite version of this app first, to see if it works.
