Very compelling application
Lets you see pictures in an area on a map, and then to be able to quickly open the picture. Similar to the pictures in Bing or Google maps, but much better implemented. It would be nice if the thumbnails could be made bigger and I'd like to get rid of the bar on the left side.More
Worth your time. Good conversation piece.
Played with it for maybe 5 minutes. Simple. No problems loading at all. You just pick a spot, any spot, in the world and start looking at geotagged photos. Amateur and professional. Amazing use of tech. Just imagine what CIA must use.More
Not really feeling the design. I feel like its trying to be an Apple/Android app rather than Windows 8. For example, the huge settings switches on the left side of the interface are pretty, but taking up too much space. That space could have been used for more map. I DO like some of the design elements that feel really natural. Overall, awesome job.More
Fun app with great navigation. Great to use to check out places to visit.More
Really awesome... I need to start geocoding my photos so that the location where I take them can be pinpointed. Great app for those interested in photography.More
see pictures uploaded from all over the worldMore
See the world a bit differently!
This is by far one of my favorite apps for looking at the world. It's like infusing google earth's joy of wandering with some of the best photography you can ask for. As for the interface, it seems to be built solidly and fluidly for mouse or touch. Definitely a joy to explore with!More
Great photo app
I love this app. It's clean and fast. Also, I won free tickets on the radio the same day I installed it.More
Fantastic combination of photo hubs! Easy to navigate and visually appealing. The mapping of pictures provides a great utility to view pictures from around your location or all over the world.More
Photo Location Discovery is great!
I love this app. Super fast and responsive and easy to navigate. I love to know exactly where the location is and the images resolving on a map lets me find great photos as inspiration when I go out to shoot. Also love the multiple services bringing in photos ie. 500pix, instagram,etc..... 5 Star app!More
