Really buggy

I was a big fan of the previous version of Placetagger. While I enjoy the slick new look and interface, this app is not reliable. It crashes a lot. When you think it's running, it's not. Last week in Yellowstone, I'd have to constantly check to see if it was running while I was shooting and most of the time, it wasn't. The previous version of the app I could leave running on my iPhone all day and not be worried. The Mac app is also buggy. iCloud synching doesn't appear to be working and between my two Macs (iMac and Macbook Air), they are inconsistent with the GPS data. The only way I can get it to work is to export the GPS sessions from my iPhone and import them to the desktop app. This is a long, painful process. For $4.99, this is unacceptable. Please avoid purchasing this app until the issues are fixed.


useless piece of software. The automatic syncing using icloud simply does not work, I have troubleshot (?) all their recommendations and stil no luck. the manual export/import of a .gpx file also fails to match photos with the data recorded by the app. YES, the times on both phone and camera are synced.

To sum up, this is pathetic


This is the first review I write.
The app (for iphone) constantly crashes, does not sync with iCloud and it's so unreliable I don't think it can really be used.
As for the Mac App that works, but without iCloud integration it's a constant export -> import cycle.
Bottom line: no worth it. How does one get their money back?
