PERFECT for all Android 4.4 KitKat users! For some strange reason Google decided to remove the GPS status icon from Android 4.4 KitKat. Why? Who knows where Google is going with Android. All we have now is a "location' icon. We don't know if the GPS is searching or if it has a fix. This is where this simple app comes in. It shows me if any satellites are visible and if I have a fix with reliable data. It's just PERFECT!! Small and simple yet powerful. I LOVE IT! THANK YOU!
Loved the pop up that shows GPS On or Off. Allowed me to diagnose a permissions issue for me when some GPS apps couldn't access the GPS, these being reliant on Google Play Services which I had blocked . Love the icon displays the number in lock. One great con is that it doesn't show signal strength.
Google KitKat developers slipped up. I was looking for exactly this information. This app should be sold to KitKat developers to include it there. Great job dear app developer.
Excellent on GT-N7105 Rooted Liquid ROM This works perfectly on my Note2 with Android Ver 4.4.4 nice little icon appears in the top status bar when GPS (location) is active.
Great and free Great app, found 4 paid ones before I found this. Exactly what I was looking for.
Since my phone updated to android 7, I don't see the satellites in the notification bar anymore, so the app is useless now :( please fix!
