Please fix watch complication

Everything works great, only suggestion is fix the complication on the watch. It shows up sometimes, but not always. Looks like the issue maybe that the wording is too long to fit into the complication. Try replacing it with a GPX logo instead.

Perfect for geotagging my photos

I have become OCD about geotagging my photos in the past decade. I started with a GPS tracker (clunky). I moved on to using my iPhone when I wasn’t somewhere outside civilization (which is all the time now). I’ve paid for apps but they sometimes were abandoned or began pestering me with ads. I fell for the “Free to download!” qualifier not realizing they were limited. I recently tried this app out. It worked. I don’t need a lot of extra features. I just need an app that can track accurately. It should just start up and begin tracking with a tap. Naming a trip is nice but not necessary. It should export a GPX file. On those expectations this app is perfect. No bloating. The worst I can say is it drains the battery (but all tracking apps do that). This is my go-to app now.

Does what it says on the box

I installed this app on my iPhone 6s Plus running 11.4 and it works fine. Emailed the track to myself and that worked fine, too. The map has a watermark all over saying that an API key is required; if there were an obvious way to get and enter that then I’d give five stars. I wanted a way to generate real tracks for testing location aware applications and this app delivered.
