We all go to places and take pictures, but often we forget the time and locations they were taken in. Well, GeoCam is here to solve those problems in the future. The next time you are stuck thinking, “Where was this picture taken?,” all you have to do is look it up in Google maps, if you have GeoCam on your iPhone.
And if you are fond of photography, Geocam helps you to keep everything well organized by placing tags on your photographs, saving all your important details like places, emotions at the scene etc. The app also comes with features that help you keep friends and family in the link with social networking sites, to provide comments and share your experience with others. The pictures that get stored also come with Geo data which makes the app even better.
The GeoTagging feature functions by adding geographical identification metadata to various media such as photographs and videos and is a form of geospatial metadata. This means that the data will be stored in the form of latitude and longitude coordinates, though they can also include altitude, bearing, distance, accuracy data and place names. But we don’t have to go into all that, the app is absolutely wonderful and its functioning is very impressive.
The GeoCam also notes the latitude, longitude and the direction the camera faces. This in turn provides the app with an idea about the direction and angle in which the mobile is facing the target with the help of a GPS sensor, compass and Gyroscope. Now all these things happen when you take a picture, store it and then display it on Google maps. This will help you in the future to find out where you were standing, the place and the direction or the angle of coverage of the camera when you took the picture.
The app also has the ability to detect the presence of magnetic sources that may cause interference with the compass when you are taking a picture with your camera. In such cases the GeoCam will alert you of the error and also helps you get rid of it. Besides this, the camera has a capture tab and a menu tab which helps you to browse through your gallery within the blink of an eye.
There are options to turn on or turn off the location services which can be altered through the settings, use options to change titles or tags to photos, change file formats, gallery view mode, author name and also contact support in times of need.
Feel free to add comments to the pictures through the gallery mode, and have privacy in sharing your pictures and comments only among individuals who you want to share them with. Well, you can also go the other way around and share your pictures with the world as well. It’s very simple to get a report tool which will help you out.
The app is as intricate and completely competent as explained, but there is even more and this review can only give you a sneak peek on the app’s functions. So if you want to try out the free version first you can go ahead and I bet that the paid version is even better. Have fun taking pictures.
