Context Camera - App Review

The developer states; 'Context Camera helps you to collect critical information by stamping your photos with direction, location, time and address information, as well as user comments. Never question where/when/why a photo was taken again'.

It's interesting that there are so many Apps to delete, and edit photo data; here's one with a difference, it enables you to add information.

Now for the ACIDS test:

The screen shows the image detected by your camera with additional information.

At the top of the screen are the direction, position (latitude and longitude), as well as an estimate of accuracy.

At the bottom of the screen are icons to search existing photos (stored within the App), an edit so that you can enter up to 2 comments, as well as changing the overlay (location, comment size, all info).

In the middle, and unmissable, is the button to capture the image.

There is a button for setting flash on/off/automatic.

The settings have a myriad of options from formats for location, direction, distance, altitude, date/time, text background, as well as an easy e-mail set-up for sharing annotated photos.

The App Costs $8.

There are lots of uses for this App, including when you take similar photos in order to explain variations... without the comments it might not be too obvious.

Depending on your intended use, it's not an App you will use every day but very useful when you need to explain images.

Just think of this as a camera with extra bits; it works.

You are invited, optionally, to send analytics back to the developer with an aim of improving the App. The App requests access to your location and your camera (obviously).

ACIDS Test Rating:

Never forget why you took a photo... let alone where or when.
