This is awesome, works perfectly. I initially did not realize that the GPS-button in the top right corner is a toggle, which causes it to track your location, rather than just centering on you once. When the tracking is turned on you cannot pan or zoom as it returns to you all the time. I sent an email query about this and promptly got a friendly explanation of the working of the GUI (duh). I am rating it a resounding 5 stars.
I have used the TPE programs for several years (Desktop and Android). They are both great products, but the mobile app gives you the flexibility anywhere you go. It is an excellent planning tool. Hopefully, Skyfire will one day make it to the Android platform. Originally, I was unable to import my KML locations. I exported the KML file from the TPE desktop app. Once in the TPE Android app, I attempted to search for the KML, but the app will not allow me to look in the desired location. I tried to explore on the phone to locations available in the app, but those locations are hidden in the phone's filing system. The issue is in the device for the TPE application permissions. You have to allow TPE to access the devices storage. Once this is done, it looks in the Downloads folder by default. com.crookneckconsulting.tpeandroid 1.4.1b79 Device: Verizon SM-G920V (aka Galaxy S6) OS: 6.0.1 REL 23
Map works now but search function does not work I'm using the Nexus 6P with Android N . Search function does not work . It says there's an error when searching. I have to locate a place manually. For the price, it should work better
Disappointment compared to iOS Friends suggested this app who have iOS and I loved the experience on their phones. This android version is lacking in the visual and user UI. Also the lack of sky fire integration as it seems as well.
Excellent Brilliant app.... ;) Works fine on my Galaxy tab S and Samsung S7 phone... Would it be great if we could waypoint photos in this app as well , and store them on our SD card .... Amazing app anyway..... :)
Outstanding - Have used this for years with zero problems on HTC and Samsung Galaxy phones. Wish it would work on a Galaxy tablet - it wont for some reason.
