The Photos app can keep track of where your photographs are taken, assuming the photos in your Photo Library have location-based metadata attached to them. Even images you save from the internet can have this location data baked into them from time to time.
What most people don’t know is that it’s possible to spoof a photograph’s location data to make it look as if it were taken somewhere else. In today’s tutorial, we’ll show you how you fake the location of your photos in less than 5 minutes with an app called Mappr.
Google recently introduced a location-sharing feature in the mobile Google Maps app that’s somewhat similar in functionality to Apple’s Find My Friends app. On your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Google Maps allows you to share your location with others for up to 72 hours, choose who can see where you are, hide other people’s locations from a map and more.
In this step-by-step tutorial, you’ll learn how to share your real-time location on Google Maps with friends and family in case you’d like to let them know where you are and when you’ll get there.
The Lock screen is a user interface you see countless times on any given day. And because you see it so many times, you want the wallpaper on your Lock screen to look appealing instead of just plain, and that’s where a new jailbreak tweak called WeatherLock by rainwolf is going to receive some cheers.
To specify an exact location on a map, we have come to use addresses, landmarks or other easily identifiable spots as waypoints for our orientation. It’s common sense, right? Right. Except that the concept of reading a geographic map through a prism of man-made constructions is pretty flawed. This is especially true when you use various different services like Apple and Google Maps, who often yield inconsistent results for the same addresses, places and whatnot.
Enter latitude and longitude, the most reliable and unalienable GPS coordinates you can deploy to pinpoint a location. The best thing about them? Not only are they universally used and there’s unique codes for both your and your neighbour’s house, but they are also consistent no matter the mapping service you use.
In the spirit of that, the following piece will teach you how to show the GPS coordinates of any location on iPhone so that you can respond something like ’37.3305, -122.0296’ next time your friend asks for your whereabouts. And if you’re curious how to find that GPS location in Maps, we will demonstrate that too!
