Flank Location

A simple API that cleanly registers pending intent for location updates from Google location api.

Using Recon and FlankLocation annotation the location update registration using pending intent is made easier, This still supports dynamic location request at runtime by accepting it as parameter when registering for location updates.

Usage

@FlankLocation(interval = 3000, fastestInterval = 2000, priority = PRIORITY_HIGH_ACCURACY)
public class ReconExample extends ReconTask {
  public ReconExample() {
    super("ExampleRecon");
  }

  /** starts registering for location updates */
  public static void start(Context context) {
    Recon.using(context).start(ReconExample.class);
  }

  /** stops listening to location updates */
  public static void stop(Context context) {
    Recon.using(context).stop(ReconExample.class);
  }

  protected onNextLocation(LocationResult locationResult) {
    // do something with location result
  }

  protected onConnectionError(ConnectionResult connectionResult) {
    // check if it is resolvable.
  }
}

Note: This library is still experimental hence could undergo major design changes.
