Photo size doesn’t work on IPhone 12

I have been using this for over a year now and it was perfect for what I needed. I have changed to a new IPhone 12 and now the unlabeled photos are not size adjustable just the photos with the coordinates on them.

Update made labeling measurements difficult

I used to put in factional measurements, since (I’m assuming update) then I can only use a decimal and write out what units. Basically the use of /‘“,. Plus others is no longer possible. If you can make it so I can write 1/8” instead of .125 inches. I’ll change my rating to 5 star.

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!!

Scaling issue on iPhone 12 mini

The camera shutter buttons are off the bottom of the screen so you are unable to take photos.

Agreed - Near perfect

This app is awesome. After working through the settings it’s so easy to export or share. Easy to describe each photo on the fly. So many great choices for how you want to stamp these photos and send them off! Thanks!

For some reason the date is January. This is October and it is still wrong
By Date is always wrong

Great field app

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

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.
