Great App for a Professional Photographer!


I've been using MetaGear on my iPad Pro for about a month now and it’s great! With the new release of iOS 11, I have a couple requests: Support to read/write to Folders inside the new Files App and Drag and Drop Support.

Can’t rename photos


Why can’t it rename images

Developer Response

Hello, image file renaming is not possible in iOS file system. The renaming feature in the app changes names of the files in iCloud.

Best IPTC Editor


*** I love the tech support from this developer! Leaving comments brings near immediate updates so here goes:

Still a full five star product! One improvement would be to make it easier to flip between pictures. Currently, you have to go back to the camera roll to select a different picture. It would be great if users could swipe left or right on the picture preview to move to the next or previous picture.

All the praise in my previous review below still applies. Thanks for a great product!***

I am a photo professional and I frequently need to be able to view or edit IPTC data in photos and videos. I wanted an app that would allow me to do that on the go.

MetaGear is solid app that will give you the ability to read and edit IPTC fields. It is updated regularly and hasn't been abandoned like Photogene⁴. It launches fast, works great and hasn't crashed on me yet.

When I first purchased the app, I need access to a couple of deprecated field and the developer added access to those fields almost immediately upon request!

If you are an imaging professional who needs to read or edit IPTC metadata this app is perfect for the job! Need more functionality? Ask and see what can be done.

Great service, superior app.

Developer Response

Thanks for your review, I'll add these fields for you in next update :)
