Very useful tool

This app was mentioned in a land surveying forum, and I’m so thankful for it. It has become crucial to our workflow in my surveying company, and we have purchased this app for each of our party chiefs as well as office technicians. The developer is very responsive and I hope the app stays up-to-date in the future. This app is a prime example of why smartphones have become indispensable.

Don’t spend your money

The app has a great potential but no matter what you want to do, it just wants extra money. For everything!!!!! You are sticker with a 4:3 photo format and the quality is not the highest your phone can deliver. If you use it, resolution of that picture taken in the app is lower than all your other pictures resolution.

does what I need it to do. Good app.

Fantastic App!!

I have used this app for years to take pictures for ecological volunteering and other projects. It is wonderful for documenting conditions in the field with geographical coordinate data overlayed on the image. I use it for downed trees and other environmental conditions to report. The app has been consistently good for all these years and I have never had an issue. Also, all the functions work offline which is excellent. I highly recommend this app!

Doesn’t always work

Out of several photos, only about half actually had the overlay placed on them. More than worthless, actually adds time as I now need to crop photos with the overlay. Waste of money.

The best GPS camera app ever

This app is one of the best app and moslty the industry pack is really useful for those who want to save the coordinates and the addresses of the places which they take photos . But one thing which i really hope the developer add in the future that, beside getting the address, coordinates etc in the CSV report, we could get thumbnail of photos in the table as well.

Almost perfect

Wish Solocator had the ability that to take photos by time delay and I wish the app was compatible with my Ubeesize Tripod Remote as the remote is with the default Apple Camera App on the same device.

Works well for what it was intended

I really like using this app as a geologist. Recently I purchased the industry pack which is a good value for my fieldwork needs. The developers addressed my questions quickly and clearly which was a good value on top of the app itself.

oh wow...

Burns me up when developers stop supporting apps with normal progression updates, then want to “charge” for “enhancements”. I realize developers have to eat, but so do I. Why can’t these people just develop their product - make it a GOOD product, and have its self sold on it’s own developed enhanced merit?

Very helpful for my field work.

My work takes me out to remote aquatic areas for various surveys and inspections. I take lots of pictures of plants on recon and having the ability to map routes, plant taxa, and locations/boundaries of plant taxa via GPS/GIS integration is very useful. And the price for all options is very reasonable. Very useful and user friendly for my purposes. Thank you!
