I have installed a few Android applications both with the adb install MyApplication.apk command and via a webserver (like an alternative to Android Market).

But where in the Android file system on my phone is the MyApplication.apk file placed? Are applications installed with adb install not placed in the same directory as applications downloaded from the Market?

I found some applications on /system/app but I can't recognize them as some downloaded from Android Market or the one I have installed with adb install .

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.

Google announced last week that it would release a new locator feature for Android devices called Android Device Manager, which helps owners find their lost or stolen phones and tablets. It was supposed to roll out later this month, but in a Google+ posting Wednesday , Google announced its immediate availability.

The feature works similarly to other locator services, like Lookout and Samsung's Find My Mobile , but now you get the feature natively on your Android device. Here's how to get started with Android Device Manager:

On your Android device, go to the Google Settings app, then tap on Android Device Manager. The locator feature is enabled by default, but to enable remote data wipe, tap on the box next to "Allow remote factory reset," then tap "Activate."

In my application I would like to determine the user's current location. I do however have a couple of questions in this regard:

Could you please provide me with some code-snippets or tutorials on how to get started with implementing GPS functionality in my application?

gps –> (GPS, AGPS): Name of the GPS location provider. This provider determines location using satellites. Depending on conditions, this provider may take a while to return a location fix. Requires the permission android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
