<p>Contains the framework API classes that define Android location-based and related services.</p>
<p class="note">
<strong>Note:</strong> The Google Location Services API, part of Google Play
Services, provides a more powerful, high-level framework that automates tasks such as
location provider choice and power management. Location Services also provides new
features such as activity detection that aren't available in the framework API. Developers who
are using the framework API, as well as developers who are just now adding location-awareness
to their apps, should strongly consider using the Location Services API.
To learn more about the Location Services API, see
