Nice app, if you don’t want to share your info!

I’ve been using Metapho for a couple years, seems like and wow, they’re all over the app with consistent update frequency. Their customer service (if you need, you won’t) is quick and easy to follow their instructions if applicable. It does allow for deep metadata cleaning as well. While it’ll take a bit more space - it does what it claims aplomb. And the $3 ‘support donation’ (I wouldn’t call this an IAP, in reality software and programs that were this capable were a ‘c note!’ If available, and could be only run on a desktop machine with plenty of power and time. Today, for a three dollar bill it’s done in milliseconds, hardly noticeable anything was done!!
It was and it does. I was skeptical initially and emailed myself as well as downloaded from my FTP site several JPEG TIFF & other formats including slide scan files and analog snaps of a couple hundred albums for the family. I use it as a data ‘filler’ usually but I’ve definitely benefited from the app in situations where the metadata isn’t something I want shared with the snap
Keep up the excellent work, it’s an indispensable app for those who want or need its ability to scramble, eliminate or all together make the metadata disappear


Should be included in iOS it’s so good

This is a fantastic companion app for Photos for iOS. It really is great for modifying location data for pictures that I have imported from my Canon camera to my iPad. We all know how much of a pain it is to take pictures with a DSLR that lacks GPS. This app allows you to select multiple photos and tag the correct geolocation data for all of the photos that lack that data. Couldn’t be happier with this app. Would gladly pay more or even an annual $5 subscription or something. Well worth it. Polished interface and bug free in my usage so far on iOS 11.


Very good app but can’t select and copy the camera info

I really do like the app, it’s clearly a labor of love by the developer(s). Plenty of key features make this a great app. I have only one other feature I wish it had; the ability to copy the camera metadata so I can paste the text elsewhere in apps on my phone (like notes and in social media post comments accompanying my photographs). Other photographers are often interested in the camera, iso and other camera settings but aren’t going to dig into the exif data embedded into the photo to find that info. That addition would make the posting workflow so much easier. It’d be a five star app for me.
