Version 1.5
Review by rarutledge

Great Little App! - Simple bare-bones app, but it works! Just used it to display my drive-to-work route (captured on my iPhone using the Trails app), and a set of Open Houses (created on my iPad using Rego), and it worked great. There is certainly room for improvement, e.g. I'd like to be able to see the entire field, and not just the first 25-30 char, but I expect it will improve with time. Meanwhile, for 99 cents, this is 5 star bargain.

Same problem reported for earlier version - Bought and installed app. However, app will not run, just has an icon in applications. Some commenters reported same problem for earlier version.

Version 2.3
Review by Shane49

Great little app - This app fulfills my specific need quite simply: it allows me to view .tcx files exported from Fitbit outside of the app. It displays my GPS-tracked routes from my Fitbit Surge in Apple Maps on my Macbook running OS 10.10.5. Previous reviewers did not understand that clicking on the icon in the dock only opens the app. One then needs to click on File in the menu bar when GPX Reader is active to open the desired .gpx or .tcx file. Also, these files are not natively associated with this app, so it takes opening at least one while the app is active to make the association. Thereafter, just double-clicking on a .tcx or .gpx file should automatically open GPX Reader.

Version 2.3
Review by lektrikpuke

Works like a charm - Open program, nothing displays (no app), choose file (to open), and bang, it displays the route in a map. Responsive, resizeable, change map views (I like hybrid best). No clutter, so screen grabs are easier. Things that would make this better would be image exporter (so the displayed route was automatically converted to an image and then exported), heart, velocity, etc. info. But, you won’t get a much better deal for less than $2.00. Kudos to author!
