  • This week we’ve made The Photographer’s Ephemeris and The Photographer’s Transit available as an app bundle on the App Store.

    Buy them together and you can save over 25% on the individual apps bought separately. What’s more, if you already own one of the apps in the bundle, you can use the “Complete My Bundle” feature to obtain the other at a discounted price.

  • Today, we’re updating the TPE web app to version 1.1.

    The most significant aspect of the new update is the release of Location Synchronization.

    If you’re a regular user of TPE, you probably have built up a reasonable sized list of saved photography locations. While it’s long been possible to import/export your locations as KML in the desktop app, many of you have asked about the ability to synchronize the lists automatically across multiple machines.

  • At the time of writing, nothing. But less than 48 hours from now, TPE for Desktop (the original Adobe AIR version) will stop working.

    I imagine that’s why you’re now reading this page. Here’s the short version of the story and what to do next.

    TPE for Desktop was built using Adobe AIR which is a variant of Flash. The maps functionality was provided by Google Maps for Flash API. Back in 2011, Google announced that it was deprecating the Flash API and that it would be turned off altogether after 3 years. That time has now come (2 Sep 2014).

  • One month from today, if you boot up the TPE for Desktop Adobe AIR, this is likely what you will see:

    Initialization failed

    As previously announced, On 2 September 2014, Google will permanently turn off the Google Maps for Flash API, and TPE for Desktop will be no more – at least the Adobe AIR app will be no more.

  • Many thanks to those of you who have provided feedback over the past few days on the desktop web app. It’s always invaluable to get input from our enthusiastic early adopters.

    I know many of you are long-time TPE users, so I’m particularly keen to hear your experiences.

  • Some significant news for users of TPE for Desktop: two months from now, on 2 September 2014, TPE for Desktop will be no more.

    On that date Google will turn off the Google Maps for Flash API, upon which TPE for Desktop depends. Once that happens, the app will no longer function.

    Of course, we’ve known about this for a while, and have been working on a new version so that TPE will live on uninterrupted!
