All great untill i updated OS from 4.2.2 to 4.4.2 then it didn't want to WRITE new maps to the extSD storage although it did READ. Tried creating redirect files, tried reinstalling, tried googling, also through the dev. pages but couldn't make it to work. Probably something with 4.4.2 SD card write restrictions. A shame because it's a hell of a good app!
Great app Great app. It works even with wifi with internet only as long as you have a wifi with internet with you it can record your tracks. But there is 1 problem i keep encountering, it always promts me with a dialog box saying turn on gps in settings menu even if my samsung galaxy star duos gt s5282 does not have a built in gps. Your search feature sucks. Please address these issues, thank you very much.
I am only looking for a compass for my Galaxy Core Prime. This app is supposed to be compatible but I installed it and the compass is the only thing that doesn't work. Does have lots of other features but I am not interested in them. It also uses up a lot of the battery. I uninstalled it.
Compass is incorrect. My gps was on and my wifi was working but still the compass didn't point to the correct direction. I think its nearly 30 degrees off so that's huge. Another app im using, it shows the correct direction so this app needs some work.
Seem to remember this app being a lot better. :/ Very slow, very inept operation with many difficulties in operating offline. (which is the only reason I have this)
Both OS maps not working Great app except for one thing, OS maps and OS Explorer maps previously working well have stopped displaying the tiles. My Bing key is in OS Explorer maps folder so I'm presuming OS site has stopped serving maps to 3rd party apps. If not I've no idea what has gone wrong. Pity as OS maps were the main reason I got this app.
