GeoPhoto is now a Windows 10 universal app

If you find yourself wondering where a photo on your Windows Phone was taken, an app called GeoPhoto may be worth a look. We've highlighted the app before, but the app has now gone universal for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile, so you can use its features across a bevy of devices.

If you're unfamiliar with GeoPhoto, it pulls in the metadata from each photo on your Windows device to serve up the location where it was taken on a world map. In addition, you can use the app to edit and add geotags to any of your photos. There's also OneDrive support for pulling in your OneDrive pictures, along with automatic grouping.

Overall, the idea behind the app and its execution are both simple and incredibly useful. If you'd like to check out this newly-universal app, be sure to grab it at the Windows Store from the link below.

Download GeoPhoto from the Windows Store (opens in new tab)

  • Excellent! Greetings from Portugal
  • If you're from Portugal, you should check this out:  
  • Greetings from here.
  • Download link.
  • Yeah I don't have time to search.
  • Sometimes I do, but one of the reasons I paid for this app was convenience.
  • The download link is a great feature that I use often.
  • Awesome, I use this app and have always wanted a version for PC.
  • This should be part of photos app. Basic stuff in 2015. Like face recognition and tagging. So far behind Microsoft. I thought you DID cloud?!
  • Couldn't agree more!
  • It was part of the camera on 8.1 now as part of the continuing destruction of windows phone its not. That's progress for you.
  • $1.99... I'll go for Storyteller.
  • Unfortunately Microsoft killed Storyteller without adding it's functionality in the camera app.
  • So, is this app available for Hololense???
    And, where is Hololense.. Waiting for more on it.
  • How can you tell, by looking at the Windows store, this is a "universal" app? I can't find that anywhere other than this article pointing it out to be. How can you tell any app is a "universal" app? I checked other Windows 8 apps, and they all look similar in the store as this so called app relauched as "universal". 
  • If an app in the store has screenshots for both mobile and desktop ---> Universal app (Windows 8.1 or 10) To say if an app is a Windows 10 app, you can for example look how user controls look or behave (especially the AppBar or Date-/TimePickers)
  • There is a symbol that includes a PC monitor and a phone together. Is that the indication for a universal app? Look at Netflix for example.
  • Yes this is the indication for Universal Apps on Windows (Phone) 8.1. That symbol is gone with Windows 10
  • Sweet
  • Microsoft shoud integrate geo functionalities into Photos app for Windows 10 : - geotag one or several pictures - create a selection of pictures based on a map ("I would like to see all the pictures I made in January 2015 in London") - show the location of all the pictures of a folder into a map
  • As long as this does not happen, you can do all that with GeoPhoto :)
  • I like this app and chose to support the developer and pay for it.
  • So how is it different from Lumia Storyteller?
  • - different concepts on displaying the photos you made - GeoPhoto is still available unlike Storyteller - GeoPhoto supports Geotagging unlike Storyteller - GeoPhoto also can show OneDrive pictures unlike Storyteller
  • GeoPhoto is a very useful app and also comes with a live tile. Been using it on Lumia 640xl since July. Never looked back!
