Video: Location Part 1 Outro
Welcome to the wonderful world of Location-Aware apps. In this lesson, you learn the basics of using location services, including the most parts of setting it up for use in your app and also how to optimize for battery use. In the next lesson, you'll work through a simple sample that gets some of the useful date from location services that go beyond latitude and longitude. You can use the techniques that you will learn to get cool stuff like altitude, bearing, and speed. You'll see more about how location services give intelligence, such as getting the address at your current location. These are the beginnings of understanding context, which will then give you the ability to do cool stuff, depending on where your device is in the world.
