deGeo provides effortless locational privacy when sharing photos.
Did you know that GPS location data is stored within each photo you take? This invisible, uneditable geotag data is embedded into every smartphone picture and contains the exact coordinates of where it was taken. Simply posting a cute pic of your pet online could potentially lead anyone right to your front door!
deGeo is a photo sharing privacy utility that removes the geotags from your photos before sharing to Twitter, Facebook and the web. Share and save pictures with ease while safeguarding your privacy and personal location.

Ratings and Reviews
Works as expected to remove geotags and allows save back to camera roll. Only downside is that there's no option to delete / replace the original (tagged) photo automatically. But it's easy enough to do that manually since the untagged versions are always saved in the newest photo position on your camera roll. Those writing 1 star reviews should learn to use an iPhone.
I got contacted by the developer and I understood the app functionality. I feel that the selection of icons are confusing but the app does it's job.
Developer Response ,
I can assure you the app does indeed work as explained in the description.
Once a photo(s) is selected the geotag removal happens automatically when you share or save, there is no extra step required on the users part.
Lousy waste of $.99
Why would anyone pay for an app that only gives the option to work with the last 7 photos in your camera roll? When I discovered that was the case I thought maybe there was an in-app purchase that, after already purchasing the app), would allow you to work with any photo in the camera roll, however that doesn't seem to be the case.
Waste of money.
Developer Response ,
deGeo works with your entire Photo Library. It is not limited in this regard. You can select any photo from any album on your device to automatically remove geotags.
