 Hi, Kumar.

See: ;a=blob;f=location/java/com/android/internal/location/

The comment there says: "Service to communicate to the Google Location
Server (GLS) via MASF server"

and according to a quick web search, MASF stands for "Mobile
Application Sensing Framework".

2. manually update AppWidgetProvider's onUpdate


my custom AppWidgetProvider has onUpdate method where i have logic to
update RemoteViews

it is not periodically updated by system, but rather, i'd like to
trigger onUpdate if something happens (in one of my app Activities).
both custom AppWidgetProvider and Activities i'd like to trigger
update from run with the same UID

i tried some AppWidgetManager's methods, but no luck, finally i ended
with really weird solution: i'm sending broadcast with action
from AppWidgetManager

is it a common way of updating AppWidgetProvider?
