Welcome to the home page for WrightRocket. WrightRocket is my Internet nickname. My name is Keith Wright. 

Currently, my most popular app on Google Play is GPS Map. The paid version of  this app features no advertising and allows importing of Placemarks, it is called GPS Map Pro. For the introduction to both, start at the GPS Map page. 

My latest Android application is The Show. The Show acts as an application to let you view an animated slideshow of your images on your device. The images can be filtered by keyword or part of the path or filename. Widgets of several sizes are available to display filtered images on your home screen. Live Wallpaper will let you display filtered images as the background image for your device.

Another recent application I've published is KMLZ to Earth.  It allows you to download, view attachments or browse your files in KML or KMZ format and view them in Google Earth.

I still have an app on the Android Market called TimeIt. I have not been updating this app, as I no longer have a use for it. Here is a basic description of TimeIt.

You may also want to check out the WrightRocket You Tube Channel. I've got a video about using GPS Map posted there, along with all sorts of random videos and Blender animations that I have created.

If you want to read my latest tweets, then check me out on twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/wrightrocket. I often post more details about updates on Twitter than what I'm able to on the Android market.

if you want to read my blog about geeky things that I do with Linux, Android, and other nerdy things, then check me out at http://wrightrocket.blogspot.com/.
