Simulate Tag

Perhaps the most indispensable tool when developing iOS applications is the iOS simulator. However, if you want to test an app whose functionality revolves around utilizing the device's GPS, then you're out of luck - Apple's iOS simulator will only provide you with a single location (the location of Apple's headquarters).

In this entry I'm going to detail the process we followed to create a small location simulation framework that can also record data.
