LOL, Google just announced this feature for Android last week at Google IO. When will Apple stop stealing other's ideas? It's one thing to simply copy a good idea. It's the whole patenting it and playing it off as its own idea that makes Apple an unethical and despicable company.

I understand you're a fanboy, so you get a pass for shooting your mouth off. Did you bother to look at when the patent was filed?

If Google invented the same idea the Apple already did, it's not stealing, but patent-infringement. I wouldn't doubt that both companies have moles within each other's teams though.

I've been using an Android app which does this for almost 3 years now, since 2011.

The only difference with Apple's method appears to be that Apple uses two sources for location (WiFi + GPS) instead of just one (WiFi). That's a pretty obvious and thus non-patentable improvement to the original idea.

Do not bother with Snake72. He is actually Otacon72 who has been banned a dozen times and keeps coming back.

As for your post, spot on. Apple is 3 years late. Apple is still trying to have half the options Android has.
