I have tried many fake location apps, Floater is the best I have found https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.marlon.floating.fake.location&hl=en


Thanks Aatul!
This helped me.
Besides I am looking for more as I questioned on this link:

Before Marshmallow I used following code to detect whether mock location is enabled or not.
Settings.Secure.getString(context.getContentResolver(), Settings.Secure.ALLOW_MOCK_LOCATION).equals(“0”)

I am not sure how to detect that in Marshmallow?
