Wikipedia Android app retains GPS access even when it doesn't need it
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Hi there

Just downloaded the app for Android and am really enjoying it.

I have one comment to make:

When using the Nearby feature to find Wiki articles near my current location, the GPS device stays on even after I have exited the app. This will cause severe battery drain if left on. Can you update it to shut down the GPS when you have moved away from the map view either by closing the app or by selecting an article or pressing back on the device.

Keep up the great work!
