CameraGPS 1.2

CameraGPS 1.2 is a big update. I toyed with the idea of calling it version 2.0; it’s that big.

CameraGPS -- geotagging

Geotagging

The “marquee” new feature is built-in geotagging. When you open a trail, you can see any editable pictures that were taken around the same time. Pins show where the trail indicates your pictures were taken. You can then select the images you want to tag and add the location to them. The location can either be the nearest “real” location — i.e., an actual recorded track point — or CameraGPS can interpolate between the two nearest points.

CameraGPS - Export trail

Export trail

Of course if you want to continue to use your favourite geotagging app you can. Version 1.2 includes support for the new “extensions” that Apple introduced with iOS 8, allowing you to export your GPS trails to any supported cloud service. Of course, Box and Dropbox are still supported. We’ve also tested exporting to Google Drive and iCloud Drive. All you need to do it install the services app.

Note: You’ll need the latest version of the Box app (3.5.2 at the time of writing) for it to work reliably with that service.

In addition to all that, there’s a host of smaller changes and improvements. Some of the more visible include the “Low battery” notifications now include the ability to stop recording without opening the app and support for the latest Apple devices (iPhone 6 and 6+ screen sizes, 64-bit builds). Of course there are always minor tweaks and fixes.

A lot of work has gone into this release and we hope you like it. It’s a free update for existing users and the same bargain price for everyone else. It’s currently with Apple for review and hopefully we be out soon.
