What's New in Version 8.0.1

Zero customer service
This works as well as the other gps photo apps with the added advantage of seamlessly dealing with changing time zones. However, this requires using the app in a very specific way that is not adequately covered in the instructions. I wrote the publishers several emails over 2 months and heard nothing so I had to go into the field completely unsure which steps to take or not to take. I was left to figure it out by trial and error and that is not a good feeling when the tagging is a professional requirement. As I write this another couple of months have passed and still no response. If you want to use this app synced between your phone and camera time, it is as useful as any other app of its type. But if the time zone feature is important, be aware you will get no help. And you can't pre-test it until you actually cross a few time zones.
Does the job perfectly
gps4cam really works like a charm. I have done multiple trips with it and in conjunction with the desktop app it has (nearly) always worked flawlessly. I love that it also adjusts the time of the pictures! "Nearly always" because I had a case where I started it in flight mode and it didn't pick up new locations even after flight mode was disabled. So all my pictures were tagged with the same airport (last position before flight mode). Nevertheless I give 5 stars!
This app is great when it works. I have used it for the past 2-3 years and never had a problem. Unfortunately, as others have reported, the app. is now broken on iOS 10.3.2 (freezes after a new trip is launched).
Thanks to reviewer Ghernes1 for pointing out that the freeze can be avoided if the trip's name is kept to the default value. Then all works fine.
So, minus 1 star for the bug, and minus another one for no update, no matter how minor, in 2 years.
