The fix for the issue below will be rolled into the next release which will include the following updates:
  • The app will be Universal, i.e. it will look great on iPad!
  • Fixed a GPS issue which may use an old position when searching for local photos.
  • Other bug fixes and UI enhancements.
Development is near completion so stay tuned...

  • There is an issue in View Seeker affecting Mac Minis only, causing the app to randomly hang. This issue is under investigation and once resolved an update will be submitted to Apple. Please check back again for updates.


How can I re-name a saved location?
Press and hold on the location in the Saved Locations screen and you will be prompted for a new name.
Can I set a new search location while looking at an image's map?
Yes. Just tap and hold for a few seconds on the map that you are currently viewing and you will be alerted to the fact that the search location has changed.
