Most smart phones, tablets and photo editing applications provide the ability to search your photos for those that match a particular location (or location area). This type of search almost always uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) metadata (e.g. latitude, longitude and altitude) that is embedded into your photos to identify the matches. The GPS metadata specifies where the device creating the photo was physically located when the photo was created. If you were interested in searching for photos that contain a particular location as its subject (what the camera is capturing), this type of search will not suffice.
With SnapRecall, you can search for photos that CONTAIN a specified location.
Photos taken before iOS 5 will not have the metadata required by SnapRecall’s search algorithm and will be omitted from search results.
