In our Android SDK, we will automatically track the GPS/cell-based location if its available to your app.
To use geofence regions to trigger messages and push notifications in your app, you must add a few keys in your
AndroidManifest.xml file as shown below:
- Add the permission
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION"/>(Required for geofencing)
- Link the Google Play services library to your project and add the metadata in the application tag.
<meta-data android:name="com.google.android.gms.version" android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />(Required for geofencing)
If you do not want to send GPS/Cell location to Leanplum, you can call
Our SDK allows you to manually set the user location by calling
setDeviceLocation with two arguments (see below) after calling
start. If you manually set the location, you will also need to call
disableLocationCollection before setting the location.
|location||android.location.Location||The location object representing the user's current location.|
|type||LeanplumLocationAccuracyType||The type of geolocation. Either CELL (default) or GPS (more precise).|
Due to a limitation with Android, you can only have 100 regions active for your app at any given time. Leanplum optimizes usage by not monitoring regions for messaging campaigns that don't target particular users.
