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.

No options to sort photos or select an album


THIRD REVIEW UPDATE: Changed my rating to 5 stars after they added the ability to select albums.....but now I'm lowering it down to 4 because the photos from my albums are sorted chronologically based on when they were taken, NOT in the order they appear on my phone. Really annoying.

Why doesn't the app access/show albums for ease of finding a photo?! It's insane to show photos sorted by *original* date taken, and no other options.

Developer Response

Thanks for your feedback. And good news for you, album support is added in version 3.0.
You can choose My Albums or Smart Albums by tapping All Photos (or Camera Roll) button in the first screen.
