What's new in this version (5.4):
Improved ability to detect external storage, including the anything that is a writable directory under /mnt. This enables the external SD card on the Samsung Galaxy S III to be visible.
KMLZ to Earth Pro allows you to view KML and KMZ files on your Android device using Google Earth.
KMLZ to Earth Pro is the same as KMLZ to Earth, but does not display advertising.
App allows you to browse through your local files to select a KML or KMZ file to display in Google Earth.
If you browse to a directory containing images with location information, it will allow you to create a KMZ file with images as placemarks and their balloon displaying a larger image with all available EXIF information. The size of the image in the balloon decreases progressively as more images are added to the file, in order to keep the file size small enough to view on Google Earth for Android.
When creating a KMZ file, each image containing location information is shown as a thumbnail, along with the image name, time taken, resolution and size. Thumbnails can be tapped for a larger preview of the image. All, none, or individual files can be selected to create a KMZ file from images in one directory.
While browsing the Internet, your local files, or viewing Email attachments, it also allows you to download, and/or view KML or KMZ files with Google Earth.
The first time you try to view a file, unless Google Earth is already running, then Google Earth will fail with a message "Not Found", or show a previously loaded file, so try again. After that, there should be no problems displaying your KML and KMZ files in Google Earth.
Files must end in .kml or .kmz to be visible to view in KMLZ to Earth, and capitalization does not matter.
Any spaces in the name of the file you select with be replaced with underscores when the file is copied to the "Home" directory.
This application runs a web server on your device at http://localhost:8001/ to serve pages from it's "Home" directory to Google Earth.
Files that you select to view are copied to the "Home" directory, typically /mnt/sdcard/kmlz. Access is now available to the data without superuser privileges.
The Home button will take you quickly to the /mnt/sdcard/kmlz directory to see which files you have previously viewed, and view them again.
This app can't be set as default for any action, always allowing choice.
