I have ShopSavvy installed, but normally don't leave GPS enabled in the settings. Yesterday I decided to leave it on and I've noticed 3 times now when I check my GPS usage that ShopSavvy has started up and is using my GPS for about 1 minute each time. When I check running programs, ShopSavvy is NOT running any more.
This last time it happened, I "caught it in the act." I flipped on my screen to check something and saw the GPS dish in the notification bar and was like, wtf, what is using GPS, nothing that I leave running is supposed to use GPS. When I checked the usage, ShopSavvy was the only app that had tried to use GPS, again for about 1 minute. I bring up ShopSavvy, then back out of it, and the dish is still there for a few more seconds and then goes away, and ShopSavvy isn't running in the running applications list at this point.
I know ShopSavvy has a location feature, which I will next uncheck and see if it still keeps doing what it's doing. But just curious if anyone knows why the app starts itself, tries to get my location, and then exits. Has anyone else noticed this? I want to use the location when I'm actually using ShopSavvy, but an app randomly starting up and using GPS for no reason might not be an app i want to keep on my device.
