Want to geotag your digital camera photos? Have Lightroom or Aperture?
PixTrack is the Dropbox-syncing GPS tracklogger you need.

1. Tap the Start button.

2. Take your photos. PixTrack tracks your progress.

3. Tap the Stop button. PixTrack automatically uploads your tracklog to Dropbox.

4. Automatically geotag your photos in Lightroom, Aperture, or any software that uses standard GPX logs.

PixTrack includes handy features:
• To-the-second clock display (to make it easy to sync your clock on your camera)
• Optional notification reminders that it's running, to avoid unnecessarily draining your battery.
• History of your previous trips which syncs with Dropbox. Add GPX files on your computer and view them in PixTrack.
• Retracing your route? Show previous tracklogs, or any GPX file, on the map as you record.
• Don't want to use Dropbox? Logs can also be exported to other apps or iCloud Drive using standard iOS functionality.
• Support for iPad - view synced tracklogs, or if you have a GPS-capable iPad use it instead of your phone to save your phone's battery.

PixTrack is the easiest way to take advantage of the build-in geotagging functionality in today's photo software.
