    I was pretty happy with the My Tracks app, but they have eliminated the the Share feature. Does anyone know of another Android GPS app that will map you route, let you take pictures along the way and then Share it all to Facebook? An app that posted while you're en route would be awesome. Thanks.

    It is version 2.0.8. It was last updated on 16 October 2014. Do you have any app suggestions for me?

    No, I'm sorry I don't. It's just that I'm on 2.0.8 which as you say was published on 16th October and the only thing that is missing for me is the ability to replay a recorded track on Google Earth using the play button. The play button is still there and still opens Earth but it shows just the start and finish points. Earth had an update this month so I'm not sure whether it's My Tracks or Earth causing the problem.

    As far as sharing is concerned that option is still available for me, including Facebook, and recorded tracks can still be exported to storage and if saved as GPX files are compatible with other apps such as OsmAnd.

    Reading through the decription of 2.0.8 on Play Store it does go into some detail about sharing, and what I'm seeing reflects that.

    There are a lot of recent reviews some of which also talk about loss of sharing and/or the Earth replay, so it's all rather puzzling.

    :thinking:

    I have not updated google earth or my tracks just so I can play my tracks on google earth. They are both free apps. Is there anyway to share my old versions so you guys can go back to the good old days? I am rooted if that makes any difference.
    Just trying to help.

    Thanks for the offer, but I very rarely used the Earth replay so I'm happy with the updated versions.

    :)
