FineGeotag

Automatically geotag photos

Note: This app is no longer maintained.

Automatically geotag photos with a real-time location right after they are taken. The camera application mostly uses the last known location, which could be old and miles away from your current position. FineGeotag will try to acquire an accurate location in real-time and update the Exif location tags of the photos taken. FineGeotag will try to use the GPS and/or the network location, depending on which location providers are enabled in the Android settings. Optionally a popup will be shown with a thumbnail of the photo and the reverse geocoded address. Don’t forget to disable geotagging of your camera application to prevent interference.
