I’m working on a major update for the app, due this spring. I’m looking for some folks who are passionate about MapAPic, and want it to be the best app it can be. Sign up below to become a beta tester, and I’ll send you an invite, probably in late February. I’d love to hear your thoughts about the app, what works and what doesn’t, and what features you’d like to have!
If you haven’t purchased MapAPic yet, you’ll get a free copy of the app when it is updated. Regardless of whether you own a copy already, you’ll also get 3 free download codes to give out to your friends! It currently sells for $3.99 in the U.S., but the price will go up once the update goes live.
If you’re interested, please sign up below.
All the best,
Privacy disclaimer: I will use your email only to get in touch about the MapAPic beta program. I may send you an email while the beta is running, to let you know what’s new in the app and what to look for. I will not opt you into a regular mailing list, or give your email to a third party. I hate junk mail as much as you do.
MapAPic has been featured as one of the best apps for preproduction by IndieWire. See the article to find out why, and learn about the other recommended apps!
Great news! We have updated Map-A-Pic and Map-A-Pic Lite for the large iPhone 5 display. So if you are rocking one of those beautiful shiny things, get your update now!
The new version (1.4) also includes a fix for emailing locations with lots of pictures. In the older versions, emailing a location with about 8 or more pictures would cause the app to run out of available memory, and the emailing would fail. Now we resize the pictures before sending them, so you can email locations with as many as 20 pictures and more.
Thanks for using Map-A-Pic, and stay tuned for more updates!
To help you get the most out of Map-A-Pic, I’m starting posting a series of super-short tutorials. Today, I’ll tell you how to ensure your saved locations have the best possible geolocation data.
When you save a new location, the app gets your current coordinates from GPS and saves them along with the location data. That will be enough for most people. However, in certain situations the location may be off and will need to be adjusted:
- if the app could’t lock on the GPS signal while saving the location
- if you imported a location from an existing pic, and the app couldn’t get geotag data from that photo
- if you want to save a location that is some distance away from you
Here’s what you can do in such cases.
First, you can always fine-tune the location from the map view. Open your location, go the Map tab, and move the pointer to where you want it. This action updates the street address automatically, as shown on the picture below:
Finally, if you want to change the street address (because it’s been determined incorrectly by the app, etc), you can just edit it by tapping on the edit button in the location details view.
