Save Your Location With Clarus Places
Manually inputing an address into your contacts can often be a tedious task and may go undone for just that reason. Well not anymore. XDA member ClarusWidgets has designed Clarus Places, the perfect automatic solution for saving your current location.
With the correct settings, Clarus Places can run in the background, allowing you instant access to save your current location. It is as simple as pulling down your notifications bar, clicking on the notification, and selecting which contact to save the address to.
