Ratings and Reviews
I have used this app for years to take pictures for ecological volunteering and other projects. It is wonderful for documenting conditions in the field with geographical coordinate data overlayed on the image. I use it for downed trees and other environmental conditions to report. The app has been consistently good for all these years and I have never had an issue. Also, all the functions work offline which is excellent. I highly recommend this app!
I’m an ecologist and this app is great for keeping record of things I find in the field. Well worth the full purchase and is cheaper than competitive apps with a better final picture design. The one flaw I found is that the landscape lock doesn’t actually lock the photo based on the gyroscope of the phone (like when trying to take landscape but the phone is barely tilted into portrait mode). Overall, I would highly recommend purchasing it!
Developer Response ,
Hi Jason, We were recently informed of this bug and we've fixed it. We are just testing a few other fixes/enhancements and we will be releasing an update shortly. Best Regards John.
App support link broken
I am just leaving this to say the latest update has messed up the screen on the iPhone 8plus and the app support link takes you to a website with a broken link. That being said I use this app daily for work and it’s great it’s really five stars this is the first problem I have had in two-three years using this app. And I need you to fix it before I start my next project I can’t access settings at all to change the text overlay. It’s like the latest update shifted the buttons down so they are hidden behind the margin and home key. Once again great app please fix it.
Developer Response ,
Hi, yes the latest update has a UI issue for plus size iPhones. We have fixed this issue and earlier today we submitted an app update (v2.7) to Apple for review. In the meantime I can assist with a test version. Please contact me at email@example.com. Thanks for your understanding. John
