PhotoTrip makes geotagging available for every camera that stores a timestamp along with it's photographs. Just create a Trip in the application and set the auto waypoint interval. PhotoTrip will periodically record your current location.
When you are finished, you can send the recorded data in the open GPX file-format to you computer and use any tool you like to add the GPS geo information to your photographs or simply view your trip in Google Earth.
If you use Aperture to manage your photos, you can use our Aperture Plugin to write the location informations stored by PhotoTrip to your photos.
PhotoTrip allows you to add a short description for each Waypoint that you record. You can even add a photograph that helps you remember what was special about a particular location.
If you do not need automatic waypoint recording, you can manually add waypoints to a particular trip whenever you like. PhotoTrip even let's you mark Waypoints as "planed". That way you can prepare all the sites you want to visit in advance. When on the location of a planed waypoint you can add a photograph, the gps information and the current date.
- Automatically or manually create waypoints
- Waypoints store GPS information (longitude, latitude and altitude; only on devices that provide CoreLocation)
- Attach a photograph to each waypoint (only on devices with a camera)
- Export Tracklog as GPX-file via eMail
- Open Safari to show the location of a waypoint on a Google Map.
- Use our Aperture Plugin or any other tool that can read GPX-files to geotag photographs taken with an external camera (perfect for iPhotos Places feature) or create maps for your trips (for example with Google Earth)
- Plan trips in advance (what sites do you plan to visit) and fill in the location information as you arrive on location
- Send eMails as plain text or with file attachments (the later requires you to configure a SMTP-Server in PhotoTrip)
- No Internet connection required to record your waypoints
What's New in Version 1.7
+ fixed a bug that caused random crashes
+ added graphics that show the accuracy for each waypoint recorded
+ added a heightmap for the trips
Nice try but serious flaw cripples this app
PhotoTrip does have some nice features given the price point. However, several fundamental problems keep this app from being very useful. The biggest problem for me -- it often looses gps signal and when it does it will record the location as "0.0, 0.0" -- which is where the equator and prime meridian meet in the Atlantic Ocean just off the western coast of Africa. This really screws up geo tagging photos. When using this app, I have to manually edit the GPX file to remove the bad entries. This is a deal breaker for me regardless of the price.
If the bad data entries could be fixed and a few other flaws (does not work in sleep mode), it could have some potential for a budget gps logger app.
