Ratings and Reviews
Great App! But PDF function isn’t working
Love this app! A very nice way to organize photos to give to your director/producers. I will give it 5 stars once the PDF export works. As of right now I can’t get the PDF to export. This would be the main reason we would use this. Other than that, love it.

Hi -- the PDF feature has been fixed and improved! Please give it a try and let me know how you like it.
This is a great app! But the pdf function does not work and does not display the location on the PDF after you export. Very difficult to use for its intended purpose without this!
^^ This issue has been fixed and I have updated to a five star review!

Just what I have been looking for!
A wise photographer once said ‘The best camera for the job is the one you have with you.’ and in this day and age that means a camera phone. However, as a long time user of higher end cameras, I am often not satisfied with the results from a camera phone. I had been looking for a way to make a note of photo opps that would be best taken with my DSLR camera when I’m out and about but don’t have my DSLR camera with me. I tried many methods to do this but all of them were clumsy, too much of a hassle etc. Then I found this app. It is so easy to take a quick snapshot of the subject in question and then later add it to the app. You don’t even have to take a picture of the actual object as the main goal is to get the GPS coordinates that the phone records when you take a photo (I have a few shots of my car seat as I took them while driving by something interesting) . Then it is a simple matter to add the photo to the app which then creates what is called a ‘Location’. This ‘Location’ includes your photo, notes (really helpful for those car seat photos mentioned above) and tags to further categorize the ideas. You can also view your Locations on a map.
Here’s an example: I already have a fair number of photo ideas from the downtown area near where I live. These spots were all discovered while there on other reasons than a photo shooting session. When I decide to do some shooting downtown I can just grab my camera gear and head downtown and easily find all those spots using this app. That’s pretty darn great!
I deducted 1 star from my rating because I’d like to see a more robust method for organizing the Locations.
