Add Date / Time from Photo

When Creating an entry via the Photo button (on the Main Menu) you will be prompted with the option to set the date and time of the entry to that of the Photo.

If you add a photo to an existing entry, you will not see the prompt, so you can manually set the entry to the photo timestamp by going to the date edit screen and tapping the button “Set to Photo Date / Time“.

Add Location from Photo

When adding a photo from the Main Menu or to an existing entry that does not yet contain location information. If the photo contains GPS data, it is automatically added to the entry.

If your entry already contains location information, you will see a prompt to let you update the location to the GPS location found in the photo.
