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

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).

Photo documentation DONE RIGHT

-Photographic records of work performed with no room for questions by anyone. -Customer support without delay. -Functionality to suit your needs. -Clean layout. I could go on and on, and I’ve only been actively using this app for about one or two weeks now. Exporting and sharing options to suit any need I could imagine (jpg, kml, pdf, and others that are more complicated). I do keep my usage pretty straight forward. But the finished result of using this app is a photographic history of what is, what was, and what there will be (left to deal with by other people). After showing others the clear, concise, repeatable information (a picture is worth a thousand words) captured by this app, I have heard thousands of words of praise. A must have app, IMHO. Stop reading reviews and download it, try it out for yourself.

So perfect

Honestly these guys thought of everything everything I want to program into an app for inspections is already here easy point of access to just turn your photos into a report instantly saves hours possibly days of reports currently I’m working on 114 school buildings doing rooftop inspections of AC units and sometimes there’s thousands of units on one building creating days of work and reporting process this has literally made all that instantaneous I couldn’t ask for a better app I will advocate for this app from the rooftops literally

What happened to the real-time watermark? 😧

I use this app for inspecting construction sites. The thing is, I use a drone most often to take pictures, all of which will have the geodata and the time in it's EXIF and when I would take the images and render them through the app, it would watermark the coordinates of where...and the exact time when...the photo was captured by the drone. And, to add, I can add comments to each photo which are watermarked as well. Recently, I suppose due to an update, it watermarks/stamps the time I export the photo instead of the actual time it was taken. Am I doing something wrong all of a sudden or is there a setting to put this back the way it was? Other than that, it's a rare and exceptional app for what I do. So three stars unless I can get it back the way it was. Then 5 for sure. More like 10.

Thanks for getting back with me. I took what you said and it worked pretty good.
Still seems like it could confuse others and it would be nice to have the ability to change the date/time format.
Otherwise it works the way I need, so thanks again for responding with the solution.
I will increase one star. It is a terrific tool.

Developer Response ,

Dear i ❤️Cows, I imported some photos right now and the app generates the title from the original date and time when the photo was taken. This is used as a title field on the notes overlay. The timestamp field on the notes overlay really shows the timestamp for when the photo was imported into the app. There is no change from me in this between recent versions and this is the first shout for this being a problem, given the title bears the original date time information. I guess this is the import option/setting that is missing then - to date the photos imported by the original date or by the import date. Dating them by the original date would move them down the points list when it is sorted by date descending by default, currently they appear on top after the import, I believe. I agree with the possible confusion on dates and I think this import option/setting would be something to solve the confusion. What do you think? Please contact me at and I can add this option within days so you can try it in the beta version and tell if this is it. I'm working on the ordering options for the point collections list right now and this change/option can come along in the same release very soon. Yours sincerely and thankful so much for your feedback, Stan, the app developer.
