Android Program that Accepts the User Location and Runs in the Background and Notifies the User when they are Within 1 km of that Location

«
»
Here is source code of the Program to demonstrate a Program that Accepts a Location from the User, Run in the Background, and Notifies the User when he/she is within 1Km from that Location in Android. The program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system using Eclipse Ide. The program output is also shown below.
