But with GPS, an Android device could also be used for tracking. It may not be the most reliable method, and it does comes with some not-so-insignificant limitations, but it can get the job done. Here’s how you can use your device to pinpoint a person’s or object’s location.

Most Android devices released in 2014 or later have a built-in feature called Android Device Manager . This service constantly pings your device’s location back to Google’s servers so that Google knows where your device is. You can then use Google’s web interface to see where your device is at any given time. You’ll need a Google account to use this feature.

Once enabled, all you have to do is launch a web browser, navigate to the Android Device Manager dashboard , and sign into your account (the same one associated with your device). Click the Locate Device button for said device and it’ll show its last known location. It’s fairly accurate in my experience, but can be off by up to 20 meters in areas with poor GPS visibility.

A mobile application software or mobile app is an application software designed to run on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers . Most such devices are sold with several apps bundled as pre-installed software , such as a web browser , email client , calendar , mapping program, and an app for buying music or other media or more apps. Some pre-installed apps can be removed by an ordinary uninstall process, thus leaving more storage space for desired ones. Where the software does not allow this, some devices can be rooted to eliminate the undesired apps.

Native mobile apps often stand in contrast to desktop applications that run on desktop computers , and with web applications which run in mobile web browsers rather than directly on the mobile device.

The term "app" is a shortening of the term " application software ". It has become very popular, and in 2010 was listed as " Word of the Year " by the American Dialect Society . [2] In 2009, technology columnist David Pogue said that newer smartphones could be nicknamed "app phones" to distinguish them from earlier less-sophisticated smartphones. [3]
