Difficulty enabling location services for Editorial in iOS 8.4

Seems like a bug, I'll look into it.

iOS 8.4, iPhone 4S.
I can verify this behavior. One thing I notice - under Location Services, Editorial was listed but the setting wouldn't stick when I'd set it to Always. When it did stick, my location.is_authorized() still returned false. Any of the times I got the setting to stay Always, I never saw the Location Services arrow next to the setting. The one time I did see it, Editorial then disappeared from the list of apps. I've restarted the phone but Editorial is still missing from the list of apps under Location Services.

I can also confirm this behavior, iPod Touch, iOS8.4, with Bluetooth GPS unit. With Pythonista it works OK, but not in Editorial.

Was there any more information on this? I seem to be running into the same issue on iOS 9. There's no privacy entry for location and the location methods don't seem to be doing anything.

Not too much to add other than I'm experiencing this as well. I did manage to get Editorial to appear once in Location Services (though it was never requested access). Turning it to Always didn't make a difference and it later disappeared.
location.is_authorized() # always returns false location.start_updates() # does nothing location_data = location.get_location() # always returns None

Still seems to be an issue under 9.1. Any eta on a fix?

Having the same issue on my iPhone 6S Plus. Editorial does not show up in the Location Services list here on iOS 9.2.1

Same problem here. I never get the prompt to authorize, and the setting is not offered in the control panel. If I attempt to use the module, I get "None" in response.

A workaround: use the "Open x-callback URL" action in conjunction with Pythonista or Workflow to get the location. I actually go through a Workflow workflow that asks Pythonista to re-format decimal degree coordinates into degrees-minutes-seconds. Scriptable iOS FTW!

@alpiarian Thanks, great suggestion. Would you be able to share a sample workflow? My understanding of X-callback is limited... I've made an editorial workflow that calls Pythonista to get a location, but cannot figure out how to return that variable to editorial. (I know, probably a very newbie question). Thanks for any pointers you have.
