I want to build an android simple mobile app that tracks location. Users will be able to sign up and sign into an account. The tracking takes place in the background. This is for in-house use so we will install the app from our own repository (will not be public). Tracking will start at a particular time and go on for a define number of hours a day which is setup. These are in-house phones so we want the app to work when ever the phone is turned on.
We will provide the 2 web services: database save and a login out service.
Here is a good example of a tracking service that can be used as the base for this: [login to view URL]
This is really simple.
Admin logs in the first time, setups a user phone and the phone location is tracked in the background for the info setup by the admin. If the power off and power back on the phone the tracking continues. The tracking interval is also entered by the admin.
