 Hi all,

The LocationProvider class (android.location.LocationProvider) is
documented as being an abstract super-class, However I could not find
any concrete classes (eg GPSLocationProvider, CellLocationProvider,
WifiLocationProvider etc.).

Does any body (either from within google, or otherwise) know which
location providers are actually implemented?

How would one go about implementing other LocationProviders?

Many thanks in advance.

1. Launching share option in menu


I'm trying to make a 'share' option in menu, just like in the gallery

2. How does Gallery's "Send" Intent Work?

I'm trying to setup an intent that allows users to share an Jpeg,
stored in the applications file cache.

Trying this:

Intent i = new Intent( Intent.ACTION_SEND );
i.putExtra( Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, uri );
i.setType( "image/jpeg" );
startActivity( Intent.createChooser( i, "Where to share?" ) );

It works for the eMail application, but not for any other app (like
Facebook or Twitdroid). Gallery supports them. Does anyone know, hoe
exactly Gallery does it?

Thanks for any help!
