Solocator - GPS Field Camera app reviews

  • Don’t spend your money 1/5

    By Boggyutza
    The app has a great potential but no matter what you want to do, it just wants extra money. For everything!!!!! You are sticker with a 4:3 photo format and the quality is not the highest your phone can deliver. If you use it, resolution of that picture taken in the app is lower than all your other pictures resolution.
  • Works 5/5

    By Ruv`
    does what I need it to do. Good app.
  • Fantastic App!! 5/5

    By Appleabc123
    I have used this app for years to take pictures for ecological volunteering and other projects. It is wonderful for documenting conditions in the field with geographical coordinate data overlayed on the image. I use it for downed trees and other environmental conditions to report. The app has been consistently good for all these years and I have never had an issue. Also, all the functions work offline which is excellent. I highly recommend this app!
  • Doesn’t always work 1/5

    By Ez dream
    Out of several photos, only about half actually had the overlay placed on them. More than worthless, actually adds time as I now need to crop photos with the overlay. Waste of money.
  • The best GPS camera app ever 5/5

    By iran bad boy
    This app is one of the best app and moslty the industry pack is really useful for those who want to save the coordinates and the addresses of the places which they take photos . But one thing which i really hope the developer add in the future that, beside getting the address, coordinates etc in the CSV report, we could get thumbnail of photos in the table as well.
  • Almost perfect 5/5

    By FrisbeeFool
    Wish Solocator had the ability that to take photos by time delay and I wish the app was compatible with my Ubeesize Tripod Remote as the remote is with the default Apple Camera App on the same device.
  • Works well for what it was intended 5/5

    By rev314
    I really like using this app as a geologist. Recently I purchased the industry pack which is a good value for my fieldwork needs. The developers addressed my questions quickly and clearly which was a good value on top of the app itself.
  • oh wow... 1/5

    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 helpful for my field work. 5/5

    By Wild Rice 40 cm
    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!
  • Photo size doesn’t work on IPhone 12 4/5

    By i hate bits and bytes
    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.
  • Update made labeling measurements difficult 2/5

    By gpcswan
    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.
  • Fantastic! 5/5

    By CogsFam
    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!!
  • Scaling issue on iPhone 12 mini 1/5

    By tyiigdrcdj
    The camera shutter buttons are off the bottom of the screen so you are unable to take photos.
  • Agreed - Near perfect 5/5

    By *NovanoD*
    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!
  • Date 3/5

    By Date is always wrong
    For some reason the date is January. This is October and it is still wrong
  • Great field app 5/5

    By Fred1957X
    I use this extensively to record geology in the field. I paid extra for the UTM option, well worth it.
  • Setting active 3/5

    By @Aitmelloul511
    Can't update project name , description Only thing I can customize is watermark
  • Exported photos missing date/time stamp 2/5

    By Turkey702
    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.
  • Missing photos not saved 2/5

    By Yuriyyyyy.
    It’s a great app use for work... missing half of the photos I took yesterday. WTH
  • Excellent GPS Field Camera 5/5

    By MargotMacGill
    Great app! Very well thought-out and responsive updates. Fantastic customer service! I highly recommend Civi Corp apps
  • SamWork13 4/5

    By 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
  • Solocator 5/5

    By Disaster Mike
    Great bang for the buck; clean, simple and accurate. Buy the next level up.
  • Settings 5/5

    By off piss
    Seems when I paid for this app on my Android it would keep the project name and all I had to do was change the description. Now that I switched over to Apple and had to pay for that app again it does not not and you have to constantly type the project name. Kind of a pain in the butt when you take 15 to 20 pictures a day for 6 days a week. Then to top it off you can not send this review without a nickname.........
  • Good App - Bad Updates 1/5

    By dj.jeffman
    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!!!
  • Reinstall charge you again 5/5

    By sl33zy
    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
  • Great app 5/5

    By bulbasaur.94
    I use this for my work in the utility industry and it’s amazing. Well worth the price.

    By Rmac58
    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.
  • Don’t update 1/5

    By twalkenshaw
    I use this app for work, but since the update cannot use on my iPhone. Unable to hit buttons, or change settings. Probably easy fix
  • When updated buttons at bottom out of view 5/5

    By mokinis
    Need to know how to fix
  • Terrible update 1/5

    By nickname wont let me
    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!
  • Latest update is crap 1/5

    By fix the problem ppease
    None of the buttons are available to use What used to operate perfect is now useless crap
  • App support link broken 3/5

    By 794273
    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.
  • New update screw up 3/5

    By bonecollector4
    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!!!!!!
  • Update... 1/5

    By Rick_Nail
    New update pushed the photo button partially off screen on my iPhone 8... worthless
  • App updated 1/5

    By MakoDave76
    Can only see half of the shutter button and everything else on the bottom of the screen and nothing works
  • Screen 4/5

    By DAK$82
    After updating to the newest version my buttons for the app are partially hidden and will not respond to touch.
  • Bug with new update 2/5

    By Good. To much auto tune
    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
  • Solocator Bug stops you dry 2/5

    By yochumjr
    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.
  • Exceptionally responsive developer! 5/5

    By GinaMaharDaniels
    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!
  • Newest Update 1/5

    By Steve French Mountain Lion
    The latest update made the camera unusable
  • Latest update screwed it up (iPhone 7S) 3/5

    By Darren N wildlife biologist
    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.
  • 2.6 update 3/5

    By cwi east coast
    When I installed the 2.6 update the image became larger and I can no longer used the camera. This is on a iPhone
  • Update 3/5

    By texas77705
    The update is horrible
  • Bait and switch 1/5

    By Vne30
    Pay .99c to get the app and realize it won’t do what you want it to do without paying another 3.99 once you download. ‘Hey, order a sandwich kit for 1$’ ‘Here’s a dollar!’ ‘Here’s a couple slices of bread’ ‘Where’s the meat?’ ‘Oh, that’s an extra 3.99’ ‘What am I going to do with this bread?!’ ‘Bread is edible’ ‘But I ordered a sandwich!’ -Irritated
  • Not good and nothing special on it 1/5

    By Ahmed3337113
    Not good
  • Easy photopoint monitoring!! 5/5

    By Jendebt
    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.
  • Overlay 2/5

    By 😍😍😍👧👧👧😻😻😻
    I can not change my Water Mark, Overlay! Will not let me input information now? Was working wonderful.
  • Almost perfect 5/5

    By JasonSoils
    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!
  • CATV 4/5
