    I'm coming from ios. In the setting for iPhone you had a last of all apps that wanted to use your location and you could toggle them on or off. When I go to location I don't see this in Android. Is there a way to see a list of which apps are enabled to be checking my location (and to shut it on or off)?

    Anything you may want the GPS on for. I just use the goods titles, keys day maps, or find my phone, or foursquare.. Etc. Even pics, some I share by location. I had it iOS on but set up notifications accordingly... You cab do that with android as well. Good luck: ).

    Maybe I wasn't clear on what I was asking, is there a list I can enable, or disable, apps from using GPS? I'm looking to save battery here, and I don't need all these apps (like weather) constantly checking my location. I don't remember which apps I have enabled location checking, so I don't want to go into each and every app.

    No list, but you can click on the battery setting and see which apps are using the most battery. This way you can kinda figure out which apps might have location settings on and pulling data in the background.

    Android let's each app run it's own permissions, there's no central list like on iOS.
