Map Camera puts location scout maps right on your photos
Map Camera is a new app for iPhone & iPad that inserts maps directly on your photos, which is very handy when location scouting.
While the default iOS camera app captures GPS metadata with each photo, if doesn’t present that information on a map until you view the photo in an application designed to display maps. With Map Camera, the photo’s origin is visible the moment you glance at the photo. Very handy!

Location services need to be turned on obviously when you take pictures.
Internet connection is needed to get the address of your location fix.
For saving and importing from Camera Roll to work, "Access to Photos" for this app in "Privacy" in "Settings" has to be enabled.
Imported photos have to contain GPS metadata, otherwise the app won't know where they are taken and thus no map is possible. Pictures downloaded from web or from messaging apps mostly do not contain GPS data. Photos taken with the native camera app should contain GPS data unless you have explicitly disabled it.
