DeGeo Strips Location Data From iOS Photos




DeGeo is an app that removes the location data from your photos before sharing them, while leaving non-location metadata intact. As someone who switches off the location option in Instagram whenever I’m at my home or a friend’s home, I’m totally into this $1 data stripper.

Ubuntu refugees are going to love the brown UI, and everyone else can luxuriate in the warm, mud-colored comfort that spatial anonymity brings. DeGeo lets you view your photos, view a map to see just where the location data places it, and then cut out that data before sharing it using the standard iOS 7 sharing pane.

It’s a simple, single-serve app that is perfect for all kinds of things: posting photos onto Craigslist ads, stripping the location data that shows you’re on vacation when your boss thinks you’re home sick, or hiding your leather-bar habit from your congregation when you send out your yearly Christmastime hell-and-damnation email.

And like I said, it’s just a buck. What’s a dollar to save your job/marriage/reputation?
