Track the locations you have visited using “Cell Tracker”. *No GPS required.*
*Completely Free. No hidden charges*
The location information is not sent outside of the app. It is just used within the app to show the tracks of your visits. Hence there is absolutely no privacy issues.
Use Cell Tracker app to keep track of the location of your cell. Track all the locations you have visited in the last few days with your Android phone. To check the locations visited you have to launch the app and click on “View Now”. No need to turn on the GPS. This application works even without GPS. The application collects location info once every 0.5 hours through GPRS/Wi-Fi and hence the impact on battery is minimal.
NOTE: The "Use Wireless Location" in Settings->Location should be enabled for obtaining the location of the device
When the application is launched first time, it may take up to 10 min to get location information.
Also there could be an error of around 100 metres in some areas.
