    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

    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

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

    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.
