Q&A: Android, Allow mock locations?

Question by Marvin: Android, Allow mock locations?
In my Droid settings, under “Development” (app development), there is a box I can either check or uncheck and next to the box is “allow mock locations”… would someone please explain in short what this option is for or what it does and how I may benefit from using it?
Thx

Answer by R T
Many Android apps use the phone’s location. If you are writing (developing) your own app and testing it, you likely would like to try different locations to test that your app works as expected. This option allows you to feed your apps different location information without actually traveling to that location.

If you don’t test apps, then it’s not really all that useful to you.
