Features and Improvements that have led to more than 500.000 Installations

A few weeks ago the 500.000th user has installed PhotoMap on his/her Android device! That’s awesome!!! Thank you for your interest and support!

A lot of great features have been added to PhotoMap within the last 15 months and there have been massive performance improvements. Within this post I would like to give a brief overview about the most important changes.

Please add a comment to this post if you think I should do that more often. 😉

New Features

✔ Use zoom gestures to zoom in from Folders, Days or Countries to grid views of your photos and vice versa.
✔ Use zoom gestures to quickly switch between Diary-Calendar-Trips, Days-Weeks-Months-Years and Countries-Places.
✔ Use zoom gestures to change between tile, grid, and list view.
✔ Swipe left or right to quickly change the day/week/month/year in grid or list view.
✔ Select the cover photo of a photo group by long-pressing on it.
✔ Displays flags in Countries and Places view

✔ Importing GPX files automatically generates a trip (from Android 4.4)
✔ Keeps the position (date, folder, or place) while changing between photo groups
✔ Share photos via link for up to 6 months.
✔ Keeps the last modified time after copying/moving files where possible.
✔ Reads the creation time of videos from the meta data if available.
✔ Detailed OpenStreetMap map with increased zoom level
✔ Easily switch to the next day in map view.
✔ Shows geo logger icon in the status bar if logging is activated
✔ Change the place/country names of photos in gallery view or grid view. Select multiple photos in grid view by long-pressing on one of them, and tapping on others.
✔ Change time zone (menu icon ‘eye’) to view days, weeks, months, trips etc. as if you were in a different country resp. time zone. This is useful, for example, to view your logged positions of a day in New Zealand after you return to Europe.
✔ New option in the settings to let PhotoMap scan photos and videos again. This is useful if files have changed without updating the last modified time.

Performance improvements

✔ Optimized for huge media collections. Tested with more than 35.000 files on internal storage and 128 GB sd card.

Energy saving

✔ Use the new geo logger nigth mode to save energy.
