Solocator - GPS Field Camera Comments & Reviews

- SamWork13

I tried the developer web site to ask this, but safari won’t open the page. My newest update has a bug that drains the battery on my phone after one or two pictures. I love the app, and use it frequently, but I cannot use this any more. I have an iPhone 7 with iOS 13.3.1

- App support link broken

I am just leaving this to say the latest update has messed up the screen on the iPhone 8plus and the app support link takes you to a website with a broken link. That being said I use this app daily for work and it’s great it’s really five stars this is the first problem I have had in two-three years using this app. And I need you to fix it before I start my next project I can’t access settings at all to change the text overlay. It’s like the latest update shifted the buttons down so they are hidden behind the margin and home key. Once again great app please fix it.

- Almost perfect

I’m an ecologist and this app is great for keeping record of things I find in the field. Well worth the full purchase and is cheaper than competitive apps with a better final picture design. The one flaw I found is that the landscape lock doesn’t actually lock the photo based on the gyroscope of the phone (like when trying to take landscape but the phone is barely tilted into portrait mode). Overall, I would highly recommend purchasing it!

- Exported photos missing date/time stamp

I’m using an iPhone 8 with the latest iOS update. I noticed the date/time stamps missing after uploading photos to my computer. All the other info is still stamped. Looks like the date/time stamps are omitted when the app saves them to the iPhone’s Camera Roll, while the stamp is not missing when viewing photos from the gallery of the app itself. This issue is affecting many of my colleagues as well. This is a critical issue disallowing us further use of Solocator, and would be a huge bummer to have to move away from this app entirely.

- Exceptionally responsive developer!

Great app, very helpful for my business! Discovered a glitch in the app this morning, and emailed the developer for a resolution. I received an email back 4 MINUTES LATER! Mind you, I’m in the US, and he’s in Australia. He’s foregoing sleep to resolve this issue ASAP, I can’t thank him enough! He’s kept me updated the whole way, and is getting it resolved very quickly. Stellar! Keep up the great work!

- Great App

I have been using this app to document various aspects of my field work for a couple of years now. I show it to other folks that I think may benefit from using it as well; contractors, sub- contractors, utility locators, etc. Some one asked me if I received a commission if they purchase this App. I replied that the hours that this App saves me on a daily basis for my work is all the “commission” that I need. Thank you Solocator!

- Very helpful for my field work.

My work takes me out to remote aquatic areas for various surveys and inspections. I take lots of pictures of plants on recon and having the ability to map routes, plant taxa, and locations/boundaries of plant taxa via GPS/GIS integration is very useful. And the price for all options is very reasonable. Very useful and user friendly for my purposes. Thank you!

- Good App - Bad Updates

I’ve used this app daily for 2 years for my job and the first year it was great. This past year though there have been multiple, buggy updates that have rendered the app useless! John will provide a TestFlight app to help you, but the real question is why are all these buggy app updates even being released? I’m tired of opening an app I paid for; upgraded to pro; and worked for a year to find it no longer works or I have to install test software. John, get your act together and please implement proper device testing before releasing to Apple. Shame on you sir!!!

- Does the job

When I can't get my digital camera to connect this is a great back up. Sometimes I have to log GPS position inspections. This works every time where my camera works 80 to 90%. Glad I found this app. If someone did not want to spend the extra money for the GPS camera, this is a great substitute.

- Solocator Bug stops you dry

Until the developer can address the issue of not being able to take photos, don’t download program. Until recently this app worked perfectly. Then today, I opened up program and the button was too far down on the bottom of the screen which wouldn’t allow you to take a photo. I tried to delete and reinstall; I asked another person to download the app and it wouldn’t work on their iPhone either.

- Latest update screwed it up (iPhone 7S)

I’ve used the industry pack for Solocator for a few years now and have been extremely pleased with it...until now. I get to work this morning and open the app only to find that the latest update (2.6, yesterday) has screwed it up and I cannot take any photos. Tried deleting and reinstalling, to no avail. I hope they correct this quickly as I need it for my job.

- Ideal App for Field Inspector

As a contractor I work for various Municipalities, Counties and the State. This app has served its purpose time and time again. It is the best app out there. The details you can add to the photos just makes reporting a breeze! LOVE THE APP. Throwing it out there. Can you make an iPad version now that the iPad Pro offers flash with its camera?!?!

- Great App

Great app. Use it for taking construction photos. Would be nice if one could use Dropbox rather than sending the pictures to Apple photos. It would allow for separation of work photos from personal photos and I could have access to them right on my computer.

- Reinstall charge you again

It has been fixed and corrected———-I had paid for the full version and had to reinstall do to a glitch in the software and now its wanting me to pay for it again

- Shutter button

Was better when the app consistently allowed use of the volume button to take photos. I take many, as I’m walking, in a short span of time. I prefer using the volume button opposed to the on screen button since I always seem to hit the flip camera button and switch it to the front facing without even noticing.

- Should be better

I've been using the app for a few months and it sometimes behaves in a buggy fashion. It will crash suddenly or fail to delete photos when I ask it to. This last item in not good if you need to save space.

- Works well for real estate inspections

The app works as intended. I like the way I can get two pictures with each shot, one with info and one without. I wish I could make the font larger and/or darker and remove the data at the top of one of the pictures.

- Agreed - Near perfect

This app is awesome. After working through the settings it’s so easy to export or share. Easy to describe each photo on the fly. So many great choices for how you want to stamp these photos and send them off! Thanks!

- Photo size doesn’t work on IPhone 12

I have been using this for over a year now and it was perfect for what I needed. I have changed to a new IPhone 12 and now the unlabeled photos are not size adjustable just the photos with the coordinates on them.

- Good but could be better

The GPS sometimes does not change going from site to site. Even with the GPS lock off. You end up with picture from several sites with the same street name and GPS Coordinates. It would be helpful to be able to edit those in the Project and Description editor. And to be able to change the text color in the editor. It is the best Camera app I have tried. Those are my only gripes. The GPS issue is a big one. IPhone 6

- Easy photopoint monitoring!!

I’m a project coordinator for a watershed council and this app has made our project photopoint monitoring so much easier. The data imprint on the photo allows us to keep a record of direction and angle which means an easily reproducible view.

- Needs one thing

Love this app, has all the info I need right in the pictures,the only thing is, it makes the photos so big with my iPhone and iPad, my daily reports are huge, other Timestamp apps aren’t nearly as bad as this one... changing the photos to low quality doesn’t help either..

- Good App

App is great for Forestry work, Gives me coordinates on every picture. would like to be able to place multiple photos on a single map though, just a thought.

- Fantastic App

Love that it takes two pictures one with the subject and all of the information and one with just the subject of the picture.

- Fantastic!

I’ve been looking for an app like this for a long time. Sadly, too many are either too simple or far to complicated and have terrible photo overlay graphics. That is, until Solocator! What a great app, everything you need and nothing you don’t. So easy to use as well, and they even thought of things that I didn’t know I needed. Oh and the price, even with the Industry Pack, total steal! Very well done, thank you!!

- New update screw up

I literally just downloaded this app and also bought the “Industry Pack” and today I went to use this camera and now all of the picture or settings keys are so low or OFF the bottom of my screen I can’t even use them. FIX this NOW PLEASE!!!!!!

- Screen

After updating to the newest version my buttons for the app are partially hidden and will not respond to touch.

- Update made labeling measurements difficult

I used to put in factional measurements, since (I’m assuming update) then I can only use a decimal and write out what units. Basically the use of /‘“,. Plus others is no longer possible. If you can make it so I can write 1/8” instead of .125 inches. I’ll change my rating to 5 star.

- Memory issue

Stores memory in app even after you delete photos. Other than that it’s good!

- When updated buttons at bottom out of view

Need to know how to fix

- Excellent GPS Field Camera

Great app! Very well thought-out and responsive updates. Fantastic customer service! I highly recommend Civi Corp apps

- USCG GPS TESTING

I used this app to record waypoints for an extensive GPS watch test completed in Linville Gorge Wilderness. It was spot on, combining visual data and location data, what a great capability to have.

- Great field app

I use this extensively to record geology in the field. I paid extra for the UTM option, well worth it.

- Pete

Are use it every day at work. Walk tons of jobs great app. It would be nice if you could add red to the option of text

- The iPad app of this program's settings does not work

The iPad of this program settings does not work

- Handy app

This is a handy app. good for documentation. I like having the two pics - one clean and one with the data. Good for evidence documentation.

- Bug with new update

I can no longer hit the take picture button or the settings to change watermark. Always has worked great in past but now is useless

- Perfect

This app is a pipeliners dream. I can't wait until the Google earth functionality comes out. THANKS

- Awesome tool for Inspection

Saves a ton of time on inspection reports all the information needed is already on the photo👍👍

- Can we embed the direction azimuth?

I’d love to see a bearing added to exif. It would be useful in many applications. Thank you.

- oh wow...

Burns me up when developers stop supporting apps with normal progression updates, then want to “charge” for “enhancements”. I realize developers have to eat, but so do I. Why can’t these people just develop their product - make it a GOOD product, and have its self sold on it’s own developed enhanced merit?

- Very nice little app. I highly recommend it.

The app is great. For inspection and construction purposes it really helps.

- Solocator

Great bang for the buck; clean, simple and accurate. Buy the next level up.

- Great app

I use this for my work in the utility industry and it’s amazing. Well worth the price.

- Civil Engineer/Construction Manager

I use Solocator to document construction site visits. It is the most used apps on my phone.

- 2.6 update

When I installed the 2.6 update the image became larger and I can no longer used the camera. This is on a iPhone

- Great app

Just what I was looking for. Perfect for documenting site visits. Thanks for making this app!

- Date

For some reason the date is January. This is October and it is still wrong

- Terrible update

After the update, the screen is too low- I can’t access the settings, or touch the button to take a picture. Who thought this was a good idea??? I paid for this app!

- App updated

Can only see half of the shutter button and everything else on the bottom of the screen and nothing works

TransferWise 💸

Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!

- Need little improvement

Can’t able to add full address because of 34 character limit. Freezes apps after certain photos. Need to increase at least 50 character limit.

- Where did I take that photo? 🤔

You'll never have to ask that question again with this app. I brought Solocator and the Industry Pack back in August 2016 and it become a daily app for me. Recently contacted the developer with a technical query and received a phone call within 24 hours which resolved my issue. Top marks, A+ Keep up the good work developers 👌

- Greatest App for field work

Enviro’s, Geologists, Prospectors and Fieldies gather here! I stumbled upon this app when a colleague was using it about 4 years ago. It’s worth every cent. Love it!! If you need photos to be stamped with GPS coords, direction, altitude, time and labels for reports etc this is fabulous. Gone are the days of downloading field photos and then labelling them. 😫🙄 Hoorah.

- Direction doubtful

The app is a great idea and works well, including getting pictures into Dropbox, but when using it inside a building gets completely confused as to which way the camera is pointing. The iPhone compass shows the correct direction, but the app doesn’t!!

- Excellent

Tried so many of these apps. Many apps have too many processes to save a photo or don’t have the GPS co-ordinates & still charge a price . For under $10 the best so far. (With the industry upgrade). The $1.49 for the basic app is excellent also. Saves directly to your camera roll. No stuffing around wasting time trying to save a photo. Many options. GPS coordinates Compass direction Altitude Date Time. No useless place name or temperature. If you work for a Telco that demands the above info on a photo & not embedded in the background then this is the app.

- iPhone 12 Optimisation

Needs to be updated to latest screen dimensions of various iPhone 12 sizes, especially the smallest one.

- Screen not

On iPhone 8 Plus the 2.6v does not match the screen. Buttons are misplaced and app is unusable anymore. Please fix it.

- Amazing

With new update it automatically uploads to Google drive and Dropbox and makes folders by project name or date amazing

- Was great until they messed with it.

Since the last update this app has become clumsy to use. Constantly saying I’ve moved from my position and not automatically saving pictures to the camera roll is frustrating and wastes time. Gone back to using evidence cam.

- Terrific app.

This app deserves 5 stars but the only reason I am giving it 4 is there is no quick way to transfer photos from the apps album to Dropbox or ftp etc. I love the fact I can save pictures to its own album and not to my camera roll - so work and personal photos are kept well apart (it's what I have been looking for) but if I want to bulk save a load of photos to my PC other than emailing 5 at a time I would have save to my camera roll and then transfer - I guess not a big deal as I could delete them after but it's just another step that could maybe be avoided. Overall everything else is fantastic, date and stamp and description options are terrific. I highly recommend this if you want to keep work photos from personal photos separate and be able to date stamp and add description GPS etc. terrific app. Nice icon too.

- Mr

Awesome app - great for visiting multiple sites and automatic recording of data on the actual photo.

- Hasn’t been updated in ages

No updates in ages. GPS gets stuck and displays wrong address. No iPad app. Get ContextCamera instead, does all this and more and has iPad app.

- App

Excellent App. Use everyday on site

- No location

This app doesn’t show locations, waste of money

- Works great

This app works well and can export to camera roll too. It gives you a photo with direction, gps coordinates, and date and time. I use it all the time for work. Don't know why others say it doesn't work in Southern hemisphere as I'm in Melbourne Australia and it works great.

- Nice and easy to use

I found this utility intuitive and easy to use. It was very easy to find how far off north was in relation to a houses aspect. I like the fact that you can take photos to capture this info for review at a more continent time. Very useful.

- Good early indications

This app is an ideal solution to my problem of identifying location of aerial photography. The only suggested improvement I can make at this stage would be to have the ability to choose alternate mapping units eg: AMG 6 or 8 figure grid reference

- Nice

Fantastic little app that actually works and the compass is spot on , all at the simple touch of a button .

- Nearly good

So close but they stamp their own name on every photo, I asked them how to remove it and got no reply. There should also be an option to remove the compass heading or at least make it much smaller, in landscape mode it takes about 20% of the image.

- Solocator

Great app for my work in the field. Made a suggestion that was promptly acted on. Potential for further development.

- Fantastic App

Fantastic App, does everything as described. Easy to use and I live in the Southern Hemisphere.

- No good for southern hemisphere

I would rate this much higher if the compass worked properly. It currently displays the opposite direction(ie. North when South, South when North). Disappointing.

- Compass needs better technology

I mainly got this app for compass direction printed on the photo and it constantly recalibrates and still has the wrong direction although with some patience and convincing it does work correctly.

- Didn't save photos

The app didn't save the photos I had taken. They were to be used for work inspection results. What a waste of an entire day's worth of work!!!!

- Ripp off

Keeps charging $2.49 in app industry purchase to click anything I think this is fraud ? Or scam ?

Payoneer 💰

Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!

- Good app!

Would be great if the volume shutter button worked with this app. It's always awkward to hold when using on screen button. Other than that it's excellent!

- Not that amazing for industry use, really

Anyone that uses a photo app in an industry, knows no one wants an overlayed photo on a report. Overlayed photos are for identification, and for proper debrief from the field. This app is great, if you manage to get the right description on the photo. If you have the take a bunch of snap photos and don’t have time to change the description, god help you. At this point if you go back and change the description, the photo is “saved” at the end of the photo album. It is no longer next to the untouched photo upon download, and is an absolute NIGHTMARE to place correctly. Until you can save a photo with a changed description, paired, with the untouched photo, this app is useless for my purposes.

- Works Great!!

I use the app and have recommended it to many people. Customer support is outstanding! This is a great tool!!

- Rating

My only complaint is when trying to take a photo, I have to press the button several times, before it actually takes a picture?? Quite often the scenario has changed.

- Camera

What a rip-off the screen doesn't even show the picture before and after I take it.

- Nice app for work

Nice app. Price of app is a bit misleading. To get all features it will cost you a few $. Very helpful being able to label photos with description and legal land info when doing oilfield or construction projects.

- Thumbs down major glitches

I payed for the industrial pack both my boss and I when we go through the steps it says purchase failed then charges you. You go to restore what you purchased it still fails you owe us 10$ u rats finks

- Awesome

I find this app to be the perfect tool for shooting a bearing along a long lot line then using the gps overlay to stay on that bearing. Plus the legal aspect of photos showing any encumbrances. Exactly what I needed. To top it all off the gps maps show where to find a cup of java in town. Lol

- User

Putting an elevation label on a pic works great, but the compass heading mode isn't accurate at the edges of the pictures.

- Theresa

I work for a solar company and this app works great for taking a pic of the roof where the solar array is to be installed and them to send in to the office and they can immediately see which way it is facing.

- Overall great app for location scouts

Love using this for detailed info esp. Recording location/direction...excellent app for location scouts. Couple suggestions to improve: batch export to iPhoto or other geotag enabled programs; option to record address book info to each image for easier filing...
