REFINE AND LOCK GPS LOCATION
Ideal for those working in and around buildings; to improve your GPS location. You can also use it to lock the position of the asset or subject you’re photographing as opposed to where you’re standing.

EDITABLE NOTES
Stamp your photos with "Project name" & "Description". The project name field could be used as job or policy number etc. You can also go back and amend project name or description or just add the notes later when you’re in the office.

PROJECT NAME USED AS FILE NAME PREFIX
Photos taken with project name at the time of capture are saved with prefix, which works with photos emailed. Photos with a project name will also be sorted and grouped by project name. Project names are also automatically used as email subject lines.

SWITCH OFF CAPTURE MODES – GREATER FLEXIBILITY
Switch Compass, Building and Street modes off and just show GPS info bar on top of photos. Gives you more flexibility on what and how you overlay info and show more of the photo.

YOUR WATERMARK
Customize your photos by stamping your own watermark. e.g. company name, team or photographer name.

STREET MODE
Selecting street mode overlays photos with street address.

Pros and cons of Solocator - GPS Field Camera to stamp photos with location, direction, altitude, date, time + optional editable notes app for iPhone and iPad

Solocator - GPS Field Camera to stamp photos with location, direction, altitude, date, time + optional editable notes app good for

1. Application for iPad mini size needed!! 2. Export selected or all pics to kml or shape file with attribute data table needed!! Including azimuth value in separate cell for further gis mapping with directions arrows. Please do, will be the best app for field survey images!
This is a handy app. good for documentation. I like having the two pics - one clean and one with the data. Good for evidence documentation.
App is great for Forestry work, Gives me coordinates on every picture. would like to be able to place multiple photos on a single map though, just a thought.
Great app. Use it for taking construction photos. Would be nice if one could use Dropbox rather than sending the pictures to Apple photos. It would allow for separation of work photos from personal photos and I could have access to them right on my computer.
Love that it takes two pictures one with the subject and all of the information and one with just the subject of the picture.
This is the best app Ive found for documenting utility structures while locating underground utilities with GPR. pdmllc.org

Some bad moments

I payed for the industrial pack both my boss and I when we go through the steps it says purchase failed then charges you. You go to restore what you purchased it still fails you owe us 10$ u rats finks
What a rip-off the screen doesnt even show the picture before and after I take it.
One of the best apps of its kind! Very accurate and reliable, allows you to pin point your picture location so easy, with space for documenting and records on screen, easy to use. I work in the oil and gas field and all my co-workers use it. Phill.
Handy little app for photo submissions of severe weather reports
One of the best conceptualised and designed productivity apps for photo surveys. Smooth operation for real daily use. No hidden costs for basic use but great in app purchase packs. Easily worth the price. Pays for itself many times over on the first job. Currently has great features for our equipment maintenance and survey Buisness Annotation Watermarking Clear heading (bearing) embedding of gps coordinates Cant wait for version 3 Qr code integration Direct saving to Citrix Sharefile or other cloud storage Stickiness on watermarks to remember the Job and serialize photos Map view of all pictures on a job Sean
This app is great, in theory and in paper, however it is filled with so many bugs. I have downloaded on two separate devices and they both do the same thing. It repeatedly ask to purchase the "Industry" pack. I finally bought it so it would stop and now it keeps displaying "faled" (yes spelled incorrect."
