Photo Investigator: Edit, Remove GPS EXIF Metadata
By Daniel Anderson
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
• See all available metadata: time, location, camera, etc.
• Remove or edit GPS, caption, and timestamp (requires in-app purchase)
• Open the location (if available) in Waze, Apple, or Google Maps
When scrolling through your photos, photos with a globe overlay have GPS metadata, so you can quickly tell which photos have GPS coordinates.
Use the extension to view photo metadata from Messages, Photos, and other apps.
Photo data may include location (if enabled by the camera), date, device, software versions, file size, file name, and more. If there is not metadata about when the picture was taken, you will still see the file creation date.
What's New in Version 5.2.1
This update squashes bugs.
Some recent big features based off your feedback were live photo support, edit video metadata, and bulk editing.
Thank you for using the app!
The deepest, best EXIF editor and viewer, etc...Period.
This already excellent app just keeps getting better! The Dev just added something I've been meaning to request: the ability to *selectively* bulk process metadata! (Example: you can edit/update certain fields while leaving others as they are.)
Claims to work on "larger photos"--it does--but your jpg's take a huge quality hit. THAT needs a fix (like: "Export High Quality JPG".)
Another small gripe is that the app *perpetually* stores its cache; if you edit the metadata of a 1 GB movie, the App's overall footprint gets 1GB bigger. On and on. The workaround is to delete the app and re-install. That needs to change!
This fandamtastic app is an iOS EXIF dream: clean, simple, easy, and feature-rich.
One critically important feature of Investigator is that it shows all metadata. ALL. Just 2 examples: it shows the ever-mysterious "Maker Apple" keys from photos taken with any iDevice, as well as the Image Serial Number(s), etc, from my Nikon DSLR photos. I've never seen any other iOS app go that deep. Oh, yeah!
The "advanced user-friendly" design and GUI (both standalone and as an 'action' in the stock Apple photos app/gallery) is by far the best of the best I've seen.

The best metadata app
Photo investigator is the best...and I've tried many. Metadata for photos AND videos. Add back GPS data to photos/videos that have been edited in other apps that remove the data (also edit many other data fields). Access photo/video data from any app with the extension...not only photos and videos saved in your camera roll. Launch the app via URL scheme. Very responsive developer, open to ideas about what might improve the app. Also, get the in-app purchase, it is worth it.
Easy to use
Great app for both iPad and iPhone. I have tons of pics from older phones, some pre digital family photo scans, photoshopped pics, etc. Exif investigator makes all that wonderful invisible photo info(including the "recipe" of effects added) and allows me to add names and occasions to the caption. Great little program. Highly recommend. Your grandchildren will thank you for adding those family names.
