You parked somewhere near the stadium, but when the concert ends you don't have a clue where the car is. The friends you came with are equally as clueless.

With this app, you click a button when you park your car, and the Android uses its location sensor to record the car's GPS coordinates and address. Later, when you reopen the app, it shows you a map from where you are to the remembered location-- problem solved!

The app demonstrates how to communicate with the Android location sensor, how to record data in the phone's long-term memory (database), and how you can open the Google Maps app from your app to show directions from one one location to another.

Need some help by retrieving *.apk file name from Android device programmaticaly ? Could any body provide some Android methods doing that or even shell commands run under Android to get the file location , if I know just a part from file name ?

List<ApplicationInfo> PackageManager.getInstalledApplications() will give you a list of the installed applications, and ApplicationInfo.sourceDir is the path to the .apk file.

You can also do adb bugreport and look at the output. You'll want to look for <package name="com.app.package" codePath="path/to/the/app.apk"...
