See your photos on the map! PhotoPin is an application to automatically gps-tag photos taken with any external camera. It's meant to be used with a FREE Mac desktop companion application that can be downloaded from http://www.photopinapp.com .

It works like this:

1) You launch the iPhone application and leave it running in your pocket. You pull out the camera and walk around making photos.

2) The iPhone application records time and gps position information. It automatically syncs over wifi network to your Mac when you're back home.

3) You load photos from the external camera into the PhotoPin desktop app. It automatically matches them and applies precise geo-positioning metadata recorded earlier.

Photos geo-tagged with PhotoPin work great with any application and service that understands standard EXIF jpeg tags. Any camera that records date & time will work fine with PhotoPin.

Note: PhotoPin iPhone application is meant to be used in conjunction with the FREE Mac application that can be downloaded from http://www.photopinapp.com . Other operating systems are not supported at the moment - Mac is required to fully benefit from this application.

Saves RAW files as JPEG (with no size or compression options). What this means is that even if you are working with JPEGs it probably doesn't just add the metadata, but resaves the file. So it will always decease the quality of any photo. I just threw three bucks down the drain. But hey, it is only three bucks.

4/5 stars

Great App

I gave this App 4 stars for one reason. You must process the pictures in its desktop app before importing to iPhoto. If your like me, I use iPhoto straight from the camera, this will add a few extra steps to the process. Otherwise this app works perfectly and does a great job! I would suggest it for anyone who likes the places feature... now my DSLR and Point and Shoot will have GeoTagging like the iPhone..

4/5 stars

Works as indicated

I downloaded and installed this app this morning, made sure my time on my camera was synced with my phone and went about taking pictures outside. As indicated in an earlier review, you do have to process the pictures in the desktop app to a folder on the computer and then upload into iPhoto. It would be nice if the desktop app could simply modify the files on the camera memory card with the geo-location data but I suppose they then run the risk of damaging the photos on the memory card. Additionally I would love to see the app take advantage of the proximity sensor on the phone and have the screen go black when the phone is placed in your pocket, to conserve battery life. Maybe in version 1.1?
