  • Publication number: 20180376283
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and program products for determining a location of a mobile device using a location application programming interface (API) are described. A mobile device can receive an input requesting the mobile device to monitor entry into and exit from a significant location. The mobile device can call a start-monitoring instance function of an object of a location manager class as declared in the API to start monitoring, and call a stop-monitoring instance function of the object as declared in the API to stop monitoring. The mobile device can store the entry and exit, or provide a record of the entry or exit to a function that is conformant to the API for performing various tasks.

  • Patent number: 9990135
    Abstract: Described are a system and technique for collecting stack trace information of devices and analyzing this information to provide metrics with respect to memory usage. The memory analysis includes attributing the memory usage to particular development components by traversing a stack trace. For example, the development components may correspond to a classification used for a particular development effort such as a group of classes, a sub-project, or a development team. As a result, the system may produce various metrics that produce memory usage information attributable to a more meaningful conceptual unit rather than, for example, function names. Accordingly, these attributions may be analyzed for forensic purposes to get a more meaningful picture of sources and causes of memory usage.

  • Publication number: 20170359694
    Abstract: Techniques for location source control for paired devices are described. Location source control selects a location source for a mobile device. The mobile device can receive, from an application program, a request for determining a location of the mobile device. The mobile device can determine a first location estimate using a location subsystem of the mobile device. The mobile device can determine whether to provide the first location estimate as input to the application program, or to provide a second location estimate as input to the application program. The second location estimate can be an estimated location of the companion device and determined by the companion device.

  • Patent number: 9838838
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer program products for a mobile device determining its location based on a location of a companion device are described. A mobile device can receive a request for determining a location of the mobile device from an application. The request can include an accuracy specification providing a lower limit on accuracy of the determined location. The mobile device can determine that the mobile device is incapable of achieving that accuracy. The mobile device can then submit a location request to a companion device that has paired with the mobile device. The companion device, upon receiving the location request, can determine a location of the companion device and provide the location of the companion device to the mobile device. The mobile device can then designate the location of the companion device as the location of the mobile device, and provide the location to the application.
