Doesn't always track correctly Set for 5 minute intervals, doesn't seem to record enough times nor wait for an accurate location before recording. If it crashes during a trip, you aren't notified until you try to export. All data points up to the crash are recorded. Support did not answer support email. Lg g3 Android 6.
Clunky What is the point of exporting to email? I'm trying to find a way without taking pictures of my phone. Should be able to open the gpx file attachment in my email with the program. I will find the $40 spent for GPS worth a lot more after this experience with a free app.
Worked great to log gps locations that can be added to EXIF data. Worked best with short intervals when outside. Battery drain was minimal even at 30 second intervals. Used long intervals when inside. Started new trip each day. Had to resume trip after changing interval. Can export again if QR code blurry. Did not overwrite gps data from camera. I turned off option to add date to file name.
A great app, if you enjoy deleting the location data it adds to photos, and having to add it again manually. I had a trip to Spain, did a lot of walking around with my phone recording my trip in my pocket... so I thought. Location was switched on, on the phone so it knew where it was. On returning to the UK, and running the photos through the software, it decided to tag all of my photos as being taken in the hotel room. Trip to Rotterdam, a whole days worth of pictures were apparently all taken at the Euromast (which we visited the previous day) Also, had a clock change whilst there as BST ended, the previous days locations were all an hour out, if the clock changes during your trip, make sure you export and photograph the QR code before the clock goes back or forward. Thanks for wasting my time!
Great for geotagging, and the way it uses QR codes to sync time between camera and phone is just brilliant! Loses 1 star because it does not log altitude - that requires the Pro version. And while I would happily pay the extra price for the Pro, it is not yet available for Android (although it was promised more than a year ago :( )
I really like this app, it does exactly what it says it will. I've used it on iOS, and now on Android. Some reviews here comment that time and location is often tagged incorrectly. I don't know how they were using the app, but these are things to remember: The app relies on your smart phone GPS and Time. When travelling I make sure that my phone has access to data or at the very least the phone network. This will help the phone find its initial location and correct time. ALL GPS receivers will have issues with tall buildings, deep valleys, dense trees, tunnels etc. There is no point having the mobile network turned off to only use hotel WiFi, then go running off through the city or town taking photos and logging your trip on GPS4CAM if the phone hasn't had a chance to get its correct location or satellites are hidden from view. Even photos taken on your phone will be incorrect. My last suggestion is to use the option within the GPS4CAM app to shake the phone to record the location each time you take photos on your DSLR, or at the very least at each new location. Do this and the app works well :)
