This app has good potential, but needs some work This app is supported by a very dedicated team and has great potential to be a prime travel keeper. There are few things this app needs to become superb: 1) full sync with the cloud of choice (dropbox, onedrive, googledrive etc) that would include images and traces. 2) full automated cloud backup 3) ability to store the on external SD card (at least with lollipop). 4) Google earth export with images and travel timing.

Can't import? Tried my best with this app, it looks quite good but every time I tried to upload a gpx or kml file from Google Earth all I got was an error message. Deleted it from my devices.
