Context Camera helps you capture more useful photos by stamping them with direction, location, date/time, address and comments in a variety of configurations.

Context Camera is designed for business and is trusted by professionals in diverse fields such as construction, insurance, safety, inspection and emergency response.

Key features:
- Take photos using the app - the camera preview with information overlay will show you exactly what your photo will look like.
- Rear, dual and front cameras are supported.
- Adjust focus, exposure, and flash settings where supported by your device.
- Choose from a variety of information overlays. Each overlay shows a different selection of information including:
- location (lat/lon, UTM, MGRS in WGS84, NAD83 and GDA94 datums)
- direction (degrees/mils, magnetic/true north)
- user comments
- date and time (variety of formats)
- address
- As well as being stamped on the photo itself, most information is also written to the image metadata.
- Annotate photos with arrows, lines, ellipses and rectangles in a variety of colours and thicknesses.
- Store photos inside the app to keep them separate or automatically export them to your photo library, iCloud or Microsoft OneDrive.
- Export stamped photos as separate images or zip files.
- Quick email feature lets you quickly send emails with photos to preset addresses.
- Customise the built in overlays by choosing the text colour, text background colour and font.

- Only photos taken with Context Camera can be stamped.
- No custom text annotations on photos (yet)
- iPods and Wi-Fi only iPads are supported, but since they do not have a GPS receiver location accuracy is reduced.

Best Camera App for Construction Documentation

I am a forensic architect and take several hundreds, if not thousands, of photos during a single day.

The ability to add user comments to the file means that I can now tag my photos with info such as Project Name, Bldg#, Room#, Floor Level, etc., as I take photos in the field. I extract this metadata later for organizing. I especially like the auto export feature (iCloud and Photo Library) and the option to toggle the info overlay on/off in the exported file.

The developers have created a solid running app that has features not available in any other camera app I have tried. Great work!

Construction Documentation You Need!!

I have been using the Contex Camera App for over 5 years in the commercial construction industry and have not found another camera that can perform like the Contex... For example- Each picture has the Latitude and Longitude in the format you choose. The feature I use most is the Note feature, you can add two lines of notes describing what you want the viewer to look at- Great for documenting good and bad construction work... Hey, give it a shot, you won’t be disappointed...

Great app

Easy to use and understand. One improvement would be the ability to have tags or create comments that are shown on the comments screen so you can just tap the tag or comment and it auto inputs into the comments section instead of having to type it.
