The geolocation API hasn’t been working for me on the emulator for a while. I mostly attributed it to emulator snafus and moved on to other things but now, with device testing, this problem has come back to haunt us.
Basically, I cannot even get the weatherapp to work on my device. I tried getting a new weather wunderwhatever API key but that wasn’t the issue. The application specifically fails to get the location information. It doesn’t even prompt me for permissions. In short, the weather app does not work at all.
My device is Samsung Galaxy S3 running Android 4.3
If I can get the weather app to work on my system, I should be able to port that solution to my own project.
Btw, I have added all the relevant permissions in the manifest file. If someone can get the weatherapp to work on Galaxy devices, please let me know.
