Photo Investigator: View, Edit, Remove Metadata; GPS, EXIF...

By Daniel Anderson

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Find where a photo was taken, and when (also with iOS8 Extension).
• Open the location (if available) in Maps for directions
• See all available metadata: time, location, camera, etc.
• Remove Metadata / Edit GPS Location (in-app purchase)
• Portrait and Landscape Mode

When scrolling through your photos, photos with a globe overlay have GPS metadata, and photos with a clock overlay have an EXIF timestamp.

Photo data may include location (if enabled by the camera), date, device, software versions, file size, file name, and more.

This app shows all possible metadata, NO MORE. This app will not guess a location for a photo which does not contain GPS Metadata. If there is not metadata about when the picture was taken, you will still see the file creation date. THIS APP WILL NOT CREATE METADATA WHERE NONE EXISTS.

To view your photos, you must allow the Photo Investigator access to your photo album. To allow the Photo Investigator to see your photos, go to the Settings App -> Privacy -> Photos (iOS 5: Settings -> Location Services). None of your data will ever be sent off the device.

View all photo metadata such as EXIF, TIFF, GPS, and any other available metadata. Note that GPS data will only be included if location services are enabled for the camera app in the iOS Privacy Settings. Likewise, on other cameras and smartphones not all metadata may be included by default. The file creation date is not a guarantee when the photo was taken, but the EXIF timestamp is the time the photo was actually taken.

To make your photos safe for sharing, remove the location from the photo with the in-app purchase. Another in-app purchase also removes ads from the app.

Metadata is automatically removed from all photos submitted to Facebook and many other social sites. For more details see

Great Meta data app

This photo viewer meta data app allows my professional photo to been zoomed to infinity much like my MacBook or IMac does. Using my iPad iPhoto is limited, it does not allow infinity zoom or has the quality that it should like this app does effortless. I'm impressed with the quality and meta data ability, and you can have unlimited photos to examine unlike other apps that require payment to do so. Wow.

One small request even if it cost $ is to have an option to view all photos in collection mode rather to go to import to select particular photo each time the one that you want is not close to the one your viewing. However for a free app 5 *****

One of my go to apps

Highly recommend this app. It's does what it says it does very well which is not alway the case with other apps. I love it that it makes a duplicate of the photo it has been working on so you always have the original.
I had been using it for some time and it kept performing very well so I happily pain the in-app purchase price to reward the developer.
If you're looking for a simple app to remove unwanted meta data his is your app, might not be the most slick user interface but it is a workhorse.

Highly recommended, best app of its kind

I use this app on a daily basis to remove tattletale GPS & EXIF metadata. It has an intuitive simple UI and is configurable. Unlike other many apps of its kind, this one maintains (doesn't degrade) the quality of the photo upon export. The developer was responsive and helpful when I had a question. Best of all this app doesn't make the mistake of trying to do everything. Although it is configurable, it focuses on doing one thing well , and succeeds.
