This version fixes an issue with crashes on iOS 9.

View all the metadata for images imported into your iPad photo gallery.
Includes an easy to use image browser, map view and full screen image viewer.

While the original Apple photo application is great, it doesn't show you any of the metadata available from your images. MetaCat will allow you to browse the built-in photo gallery and view any metadata information stored for the photos. EXIF, IPTC, plus extra information such as GPS coordinates.
Depending on the camera, this can include exposure, lens or other information.

The map view can show you where your photos were taken, if they have imbedded GPS coordinates.

If you encounter issues with this app, please contact our support ( ) - we are unable to respond to comments left in the review section.

If photos do not appear, please try the "Settings" app: Privacy->Photos->MetaCat, and ensure the toggle is set to On.

You must press "OK" when prompted "MetaCat would like to access your photos".

Under iOS 8, "My Photo Stream" displays blank images, although the name and metadata, and other streams behave properly. This issue does not occur on iOS 9.
