Great field app

I use this extensively to record geology in the field. I paid extra for the UTM option, well worth it.

I’ve been looking for an app like this for a long time. Sadly, too many are either too simple or far to complicated and have terrible photo overlay graphics. That is, until Solocator! What a great app, everything you need and nothing you don’t. So easy to use as well, and they even thought of things that I didn’t know I needed. Oh and the price, even with the Industry Pack, total steal! Very well done, thank you!!

Exported photos missing date/time stamp

I’m using an iPhone 8 with the latest iOS update. I noticed the date/time stamps missing after uploading photos to my computer. All the other info is still stamped. Looks like the date/time stamps are omitted when the app saves them to the iPhone’s Camera Roll, while the stamp is not missing when viewing photos from the gallery of the app itself. This issue is affecting many of my colleagues as well. This is a critical issue disallowing us further use of Solocator, and would be a huge bummer to have to move away from this app entirely.

Excellent GPS Field Camera

Great app! Very well thought-out and responsive updates. Fantastic customer service! I highly recommend Civi Corp apps

I tried the developer web site to ask this, but safari won’t open the page. My newest update has a bug that drains the battery on my phone after one or two pictures. I love the app, and use it frequently, but I cannot use this any more. I have an iPhone 7 with iOS 13.3.1

Great bang for the buck; clean, simple and accurate. Buy the next level up.

Seems when I paid for this app on my Android it would keep the project name and all I had to do was change the description. Now that I switched over to Apple and had to pay for that app again it does not not and you have to constantly type the project name. Kind of a pain in the butt when you take 15 to 20 pictures a day for 6 days a week. Then to top it off you can not send this review without a nickname.........

Good App - Bad Updates

I’ve used this app daily for 2 years for my job and the first year it was great. This past year though there have been multiple, buggy updates that have rendered the app useless! John will provide a TestFlight app to help you, but the real question is why are all these buggy app updates even being released? I’m tired of opening an app I paid for; upgraded to pro; and worked for a year to find it no longer works or I have to install test software. John, get your act together and please implement proper device testing before releasing to Apple. Shame on you sir!!!
