That early-morning scramble to find your keys before you leave the house doesn't have to be so frantic if you've got a wireless key finder handy. No bigger than a standard key chain — and even smaller, in some cases — these dongles connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth LE to alert you when your keys are nearby or in danger of being left behind.

Plenty of key finders promise to keep your valuables close at hand, but after putting a variety of devices through their paces, the second-generation Tile ($25) emerged as the best choice for tracking the whereabouts of your keys, with improved range and a helpful two-way finding feature that lets you locate your phone from your key chain. A new version is out called the Tile Mate ( also $25 through Amazon ). We're in the process of reviewing the Mate, but having thoroughly tested the two previous generations, we have high expectations for this device.

Our runner-up was the Duet by Protag ($29), which packs its feature set into a compact design. If you need a device with a loud alarm, check out the TrackR Bravo ($29), while the Pebblebee Honey ($24) adds other features like the ability to control your smartphone's camera.

I know that the location for system apps is '/system/app' and the location for user apps is '/data/app'. But I can't find the location of apk for the ones that I moved to/installed on sdcard.

If I remember correctly you won't find the APK files directly in that folder because the content is encrypted. This is for preventing direct access to the APK file of paid apps.

For me at least using cyanogenmod9 on a Samsung galaxy s 2 i777 I found them in /mnt/asec/ This location works differently than /system/app/ and /data/app/ because the system is actually creating a mount for each app rather than just stuffing them in a folder. Make sure you take note of symbolic links.

Last week on our Android customization series, we took a little detour from our regularly scheduled battery saving tips with Tasker to show off a battery management tip with Zooper Widget . Today, we continue to look at reducing battery consumption on your Android device by getting back to those Location services we had on deck for last week.

Along with the display on your device, Location services and their use specifically of your GPS antenna are easy ways to drain your battery. While we do not think that turning off Location services permanently is the best idea, there are times that it is just not needed. Let’s head back to Tasker and look at managing Location services to save you some juice.

Before diving in, please take stock of your specific needs of your Location services. For today’s tutorial we will be assuming that you do not want Location services turned on at all, except if certain apps are active, like Maps or Ingress.
