WORKING WITH THE APP


Preview on Youtube


One note on a video - I forgot to mention that you can tap on the camera screen to show the focus square, plus you can change exposure by moving finger up/down on the camera screen, of course.

True or magnetic heading. Degrees or mils.

Accuracy and altitude in either feet or meters.


Version 1.2 allows to hide/show location overlay in its entirety.


Version 1.2.1 adds options to hide/show coordinates, altitude and direction fields of the location overlay.


CAMERA AND CAPTURE SETTINGS


Save photo automatically or open it in preview to annotate before saving.

More on camera settings.


Version 1.3 adds a companion Apple Watch app for the remote control over a camera shutter button.

Version 1.5 adds ability to use volume up/down buttons for taking photos.


ANNOTATE AND COMMENT


Before or after saving the photo you can zoom in/out in the photo preview and draw on the image with your finger or Apple pencil.

Notes overlay for the photo supports Title, Note, Tags/Folder and Address.

Address can be pre-filled automatically based on the photo location or you can manually fill this field.

You can change notes and add more annotations later on (MENU > POINTS > tap on an image in the point row).

MENU > POINTS > tapping on a point row will open point editor where you can add an audio note for the image/point.


Timestamp options do include many formats and you should always find your preferred languages between them as well.


Version 1.2.1 adds option to hide/show the timestamp part of the overlay.


Version 1.3 adds:


・Custom colors for overlay texts and background.
・Option to hide/show whole notes overlay at the bottom.
・Option to show 3x3 grid for the camera.
・Date only format option for the timestamp field.


Here is a dedicated page on setting up notes and comments for the photo, should you need it.



SHARE AND EXCHANGE


You can select multiple points to share via MENU > POINTS or share the whole points collection via MENU > POINT COLLECTIONS.

Images can be shared with or without their location/notes text and with or without the location/notes overlay.

If you need to transfer points/images in their entirety to another device, use the KMZ (Google Earth archive) export format - this allows to transfer points including images, image notes, annotations, audio notes, to another device.


ORGANIZE, SEARCH & FILTER


You can organize images into collections/folders. Existing images/points can be moved between collections.

MENU > POINTS screen enables you to search by point/image notes, address, tags fields, filter by creation month, sort by proximity or show points/images only for the specific collection.


IMPORT


MENU > IMPORT FROM LIBRARY will allow you to pick and import photo from the photo library and the app will do its best to parse tiff/exif/gps/iptc data in the photo to restore location, direction and notes for the stamp.


NAVIGATE


You can navigate to a point/image by opening it via MENU > POINTS and using Navigate button in the point editor screen.


MAP VIEW


Image/point location on a map can be reviewed by tapping on a MAP button in the point editor screen (MENU > POINTS > tap on a point row).


CUSTOM WATERMARK


Version 1.4 adds a custom watermark option with your own image, text and colors. Here is more on a custom watermark setup.
