TPE for Android Updates


We’re starting to roll out an update to TPE for Android today. The app is now at v1.6.

1.6 adds the ability to export your Saved Locations to KML. Simply visit the Saved Locations page, choose Export at the top right, and send your KML wherever you need it. Here are some step-by-step instructions.

We’ve also updated the Help documentation, and the versions of the various SDKs and libraries that the app uses (e.g. Google Maps, and Google Play Services).

The Android version of TPE has never been as feature rich as the iOS version. We have always priced TPE for Android significantly below TPE for iOS. TPE for iOS has historically been priced at $8.99 USD, and TPE for Android at $4.99 USD.

Today that feature gap is arguably wider than ever before. In recognition, we recently reduced the price of TPE for Android to $2.99 USD.

Users who move from iOS to Android and start using TPE are often frustrated to find certain features missing, and we understand that. At the same time, we have tens of thousands of monthly active users who enjoy the app as it is.

While feature parity with iOS is not something we expect to achieve any time soon, we do plan to continue to update TPE for Android going forward – it’s not a platform that we’re stepping away from.
