SWITCH OFF CAPTURE MODES – GREATER FLEXIBILITY Switch Compass, Building and Street modes off and just show GPS info bar on top of photos. Gives you more flexibility on what and how you overlay info and show more of the photo.
I’d love to see a bearing added to exif. It would be useful in many applications. Thank you.
Was better when the app consistently allowed use of the volume button to take photos. I take many, as I’m walking, in a short span of time. I prefer using the volume button opposed to the on screen button since I always seem to hit the flip camera button and switch it to the front facing without even noticing.
The app is great. For inspection and construction purposes it really helps.
Stores memory in app even after you delete photos. Other than that it’s good!
I have been using this app to document various aspects of my field work for a couple of years now. I show it to other folks that I think may benefit from using it as well; contractors, sub- contractors, utility locators, etc. Some one asked me if I received a commission if they purchase this App. I replied that the hours that this App saves me on a daily basis for my work is all the “commission” that I need. Thank you Solocator!
When I can't get my digital camera to connect this is a great back up. Sometimes I have to log GPS position inspections. This works every time where my camera works 80 to 90%. Glad I found this app. If someone did not want to spend the extra money for the GPS camera, this is a great substitute.
Love this app, has all the info I need right in the pictures,the only thing is, it makes the photos so big with my iPhone and iPad, my daily reports are huge, other Timestamp apps aren’t nearly as bad as this one... changing the photos to low quality doesn’t help either..
Waste of time app, as the images saved by this app are 1000 x 800 resolution (very low res/quality ~1MP), versus the standard iPhone 7 resolution of 4000 x 5000 (12MP+). Thus the images aren’t very useful, and there is no way to change the setting in the app. I’ve reached out to type developer 3 weeks ago, no response received.
I paid .99 cents for what I thought was a full feature app. But If you want all the features you have to pay extra for it. Very deceiving!
The app works as intended. I like the way I can get two pictures with each shot, one with info and one without. I wish I could make the font larger and/or darker and remove the data at the top of one of the pictures.
