Intro
This is a very simple module that attempts to prevent apps from detecting "Allow mock locations" in developer settings.
It has the system respond as if the setting is off.

Purpose
Some applications won't let users into the app if "Allow mock locations" is on. Other apps just filter out the mock locations. This will let developers use these apps without turning this setting off every time!

Doubt it, sites doesn't use your GPS to determine your location.

I know that MLB At Bat did; apparently so that it could be sure if a game was blacked out in your area.

Lyft is the only app I had problems with, however many apps use the same strategy for detecting the Developer Options' setting.
Uber, on the other hand, allows the "Allow mock locations" but filters out the mock coordinates (seems like a better approach).

@dapaintballer331, Please allow blacklisting certain apps. For example, the actual app you might use to set your mock location, detects that "mock locations needs to be enabled", even though it is, and so it won't let you set the location anyways. This is a great little module, especially if you're planning on moving or visiting a location and would like to use various apps to make new friends ahead of time. Some apps only allow users to search a limited distance radius around a them. Blacklisting seems to be the only option missing from this new module. Thanks for creating this nifty app!
