    I just reinstalled BW after a factory data reset and it can't pick up my current location as it used to. I have location services enabled and it's listed there. What am I missing?

    This is what I was taking about in the update thread! They changed the service. It has to be on almost all the time and outside or on Wi-Fi to work properly

    Tap'n on my Galaxy S4!

    So I have to enable wifi? That's going to kill my battery.

    Actually, I leave mine on all day! And I get 12+ hours. You have to leave both on

    Sounds like an app issue unless you can replicate the geolocation issue in something like Maps.

    I was thinking the same. Maps and Facebook are both able to locate me. BW uninstalled until issue is fixed.
