Android Application Development - Location Sensors

Class 5, Part 4. This video comes from Marakana's 5-Day Android Bootcamp Training Course which Marko Gargenta taught in San Jose, CA earlier this year.

This example illustrates how to use location-based services in Android. First, you will use LocationManager to figure out your current location based on the resources in the environment available to the device, such as GPS or a wireless network. Secondly, you'll use Geocoder to convert this location to an address.
