    guys

    is there a way to tell what app is using the GPS? My phone's gps is constantly on even when google maps, camera app, etc isn't turned on. I'm curious what app is using it

    I know i can manually turn off gps but i rather leave it on as it hasn't been affecting battery life too much so far but now the gps icon is on very frequently in the top bar

    thanks

    Any app that requires location will use your GPS. So if you use latitude, it'll constantly stay on. Some of your weather Widgets may also use GPS for a short second.
