We’re happy to announce the new version of Map-A-Pic for iPhone! Map-A-Pic 1.6 includes an important and much-requested new feature: the ability to create locations from existing pictures. The app can now read your pictures’ geotag data, and use it in the new location. Creating a location this way is very easy: in the New Location screen, add a picture from your photo library. If the picture has geotag data in it, you’ll see a little white map marker  on it. Tap on that picture, and your new location will use the coordinates where it was taken!

If you change your mind, and want to use your current location instead, tap the “target” button in the top center of the screen.

We hope you enjoy this new feature. Thanks for using Map-A-Pic!


Map-A-Pic for iPhone 5 Is Here

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!

The FREE Map-A-Pic Lite App Is Now Available

Good news again! We’ve released a FREE version of Map-A-Pic. So now you can try our app before you buy it! Map-A-Pic Lite has the same great features as the full app, except:


  1. The app can have up to 5 locations in its database (vs. unlimited in the full version). Once you have 5 locations, you can add new ones if you delete some of the older ones.
  2. The Sun Insights feature only available for your current position, for today. With the full version, you can view the Sun Insights for any of your saved locations, for any day in the future. In case you didn’t know, Sun Insights is our new feature that shows the times of sunrise, sunset, and the morning and evening Golden hour.

If you want to try out Map-A-Pic risk-free, why not download it now?

Map-A-Pic Location Scouting App with Sun Insights Is Out Now!

We have great news to share with you today: Map-A-Pic for iPhone has been updated to version 1.2. The new version includes some great new features, such as the times of sunrise, sunset, and the Golden hour for all your saved locations! We call this feature Sun Insights, and you can get those times for your present position as well. The app shows you the sunrise/sunset times for today, but you can select any date in the future to plan your shoot.




Another new feature in this version is the built-in picture editor. Now, you can tweak the pictures of your locations by improving their color balance, cropping, and applying some exciting filters.






We have also refreshed the look of our app, making it much prettier, and made some important improvements to the location list/map view. Now it’s much easier to flip between the list and map views of your saved locations. If you search your locations, or filter them by tags, that search or filter will apply when you switch from the list to the map view, and vice versa.




The new location details screen now is now much more spacious, with the pictures and the notes getting their own full-screen view. Just tap on “Details”, “Pictures” or “Notes” at the top to switch to the section you want.

The “Sun” button at the bottom takes you to the Sun Insights screen, where you can see the sunrise/sunset/Golden hour times for this particular location.



These are just some of the great features included in Map-A-Pic Location Scout 1.2. If you already own the app, be sure to download this free update. And if you don’t have it yet, get it from the App Store now!
