Best Rides KML Reader

Best Rides KML Reader


Best Rides KML Reader is a very fast high speed low drag single pass kml map rendering engine. With it you quickly display, preview and share kml maps created by other apps. If you find an app that can render maps faster please let me know.

The map type can be changed from Road to Satellite or Terrain. You can display and share kml files created by other apps. Just click on a kml file in an email and select preview Best Rides will quickly display the map almost instantly with its proprietary kml processing. Best Rides KML Reader automatically displays maps when you browse your file system. Click on a KML file and select Best Rides to display it. I've included three sample kml files.

Notes:
For best results select preview from email and then click the save button when the map is displayed. The map will be saved to your download folder. This works for all the email apps I have tested.

Please leave a review asking for features you would like to have.

Thanks for looking.

Works well! Very convenient. Handy for viewing .kml on Google Maps, works as promised. It's great I can look at all the waypoints with a satellite imagery overlay. Now the app allows me to save a .kml file to the app's memory so I can view it straight away when I open the app. I'm glad it works without cell signal too!

Crashing constantly Great concept, shows some serious promise for a light weight track viewer. Unfortunately I am unable to use it with KML files generated by "GPSLogger."

Works well! But, I wish I could use this app without cell signal. Handy for viewing .kml on Google Maps, works as promised. It's great I can look at all the waypoints with a satellite imagery overlay. One problem I had though, is when I try to view a file by accessing it from the files section on my phone, the app will not open the .kml by default. It works fine when I open them as an attachment from an email, but this makes it not possible to view the .kml when I'm in a place without internet/cell signal.

Works well! But, I wish I could change map types. Handy for viewing .kml on Google Maps, works as promised. One feature that I can suggest that would make me give 5 stars would be the ability to change to either satellite or terrain layer when viewing the .kml files in Google Maps.

Won't work without Google play services, which is a huge resource hog, constantly running in the background, draining the battery. Not worth it.
