Versie 2.11.6

- In the Planner, when you use the compass button you find in the (+) map button (next to the lock icon), now the map rotates relative to your position, not relative to the Red Pin position. This way it’s easier to figure out how to get to the Red Pin Position.
- Cameras added: DJI Mavic Air 2
- Bug fixes.

Please, If you find a bug (or have a suggestion), send us an email to and we'll fix it as soon as possible :)

De app is geweldig maar in het Nederlands zou het nog beter te gebruiken zijn voor gebruikers in Nederlands sprekende landen. Dus graag Nederlands toevoegen als gebruikers taal.

Location finder needs improvement

I’d love to love PhotoPills, but for me the most important option in an app like this is ease of finding a place on a map. If that is not straightforward it loses points.

Thing is that not matter what town you enter you will not get a result if you do not a geographical location to it, like country or province. I.e. it will not find Paris, but it will find Paris Texas. As a user looking for Paris I expect to get at least 2 places with that name. This means that if you know in which country or region the town is you are looking you cannot find in PhotoPills and something you-tubers, but also the manual pay no attention to.

I had a short correspondence with the developer about this. He knows the issue and explained that is is because of the way the Apple geo finder works (try to find Veix, it doesn’t know it but knows Veix, France). Plan is to update this feature in the future.

Initially I gave the app only two stars, but knowing it’s possibilities and the help I got from the developer I changed to three. Not I have get to out and learn the possibilities of the app.

Hi! We’ve tested both locations and they work. Write “Gueret, France” and the result “Guéret, Lemosín, France” will be found. Also write “Paris, Texas” and you’ll get the result too.

You can send us an email to if it doesn’t work for you. But I’m sure it will :)
