What is a 'mock location'.
I'm posting this here because I'm kind of in a hurry and I might get a better answer here. I'm translating an Android phone, and it's full of commands in very
broken English. So I ran across this term (mock) that I've never seen in such context and I want to know if that's the actual name or it's just broken English for 'fake' (fictitious).
This is the description of the function:
Create mock location sources for testing. Malicious applications can use this to override the location and/or status returned by real location sources such as GPS or Network providers.
'Mock' to me is this: sticking your tongue out and make fun of the stupid
so I don't get it. The term 'fake' is also used so it somebody might have overlooked at it and use 'mock' instead, or it's a different process. I'd appreciate any help.
