Runtime permissions

Permission
Reason
Required
ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION
To get the approximate location
Yes.
ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION
To get the exact location
Yes.

Instantiating the SDK

First, create an object of type DeviceAnalyser. This object is for you to configure all your business rules for the SDK:
DeviceAnalyser mDeviceAnalyser = new DeviceAnalyser.Builder(@NonNull AppCompatActivity activity)
// see table allow
.build();

Builder method

Parameter
Required
AppCompatActivity activity
Your activity, to set the context of the application
Yes
.setPriority(int priority)
Sets the priority of accuracy, which can be:
  • RIORITY_HIGH_ACCURACY
  • PRIORITY_BALANCED_POWER_ACCURACY
  • PRIORITY_LOW_POWER
  • PRIORITY_NO_POWER
Priorities are available in the Constants class, e.g.: .setPriority(Constants.PRIORITY_HIGH_ACCURACY)
No, by default it is
PRIORITY_BALANCED_POWER_ACCURACY
.getLocation(LocationListener listener)
Returns the geolocation information if available, otherwise returns a sdkFailure. Expects a locationListener as an argument, as explained in this example.
Yes.

LocationInfo

Method
Data Type
.isUsingFakeGPS()
Returns whether the device is using a dummy/fake location
boolean
.getLatitude()
Returns the latitude information
double
.getLongitude()
Returns the longitude information
double
.getAccuracy()
Returns the accuracy of the information obtained
float

LocationListener

Result
Data Type
.onSuccess(LocationInfo locationInfo)
On success, returns a LocationInfo object with the geolocation data:
  • .isUsingFakeGPS()
  • .getLatitude()
  • .getLongitude()
  • .getAccuracy()
LocationInfo
.onFailure(Failure sdkFailure)
On failure, returns a sdkFailure
Failure
LocationListener locationListener = new LocationListener() {
@Override
public void onSuccess(LocationInfo locationInfo) {
//Success
}
@Override
public void onFailure(Failure sdkFailure) {
//Fail
}
};

Example of use

deviceAnalyser = new DeviceAnalyser.Builder(this).build();
deviceAnalyser.getLocation(locationListener);

onActivityResult

Use the onActivityResult method to get the result of the user's interaction with the GPS activation request popup on the device:
@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
if (requestCode == Constants.REQUEST_CODE_OF_GPS_DIALOG) {
switch (resultCode) {
case Activity.RESULT_OK:
// Make a new call to the getLocation() method in case the user has activated GPS
deviceAnalyser.getLocation(locationListener);
break;
case Activity.RESULT_CANCELED:
// User refused GPS activation
break;
default:
break;
}
}
}
