I don't get it why it's so easy to reveal one's location though device APIs.

Location app permissions should be more fine grained. I might want to let Fourquare center a map based on my position, but I don't want them to annoy me with "restaurants in your area" kind of notifications.

@zorbash I recently revoked Location permissions from all but a few apps (Google Maps, Foursquare). I was surprised from how many Location-irrelevant apps requested Location access: Camera, Contacts, LinkedIn, Instagram, Notepad, Google Photos and more!
