Only one month left for TPE for Desktop Adobe AIR App


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.

Its replacement is already available and waiting in the wings: our new Desktop web app. You can find it at:

Kiribati 2 September 2014

We’d encourage you to head over there today and get started. You can export your saved locations from the Adobe AIR app and import them straight into the web app and carry on planning your shots without interruption.

You’ll need an up-to-date web browser that doesn’t block cookies or use of local storage. We’ve tested with:

  • Firefox 30, 31
  • Chrome 36.0.1985.125
  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Safari 7.0.5
  • Opera 23.0

So, don’t wait until the last minute: start using the new web app today and let us know what you think via the Support tab on the right hand side of the page.

Please help spread the word by sharing this post with your photography colleagues!
