Easily remove metadata from photos before sharing with Metapho for iOS 8

Easily remove metadata from photos before sharing with Metapho for iOS 8

November 29, 2014

The photo metadata removal app Metapho has just received its first major update, thereby gaining a new extension and universal support.

Since its launch shortly after the release of iOS 8 in September, Metapho has offered the ability to remove the metadata of photos (including file size, camera model, ISO, shutter speed, location, and more) without duplication in the app itself and in the Photos app using its Remove Metadata extension.

Now, as noted by MacStories, Metapho has been updated with a new Action extension that offers access to the app’s functionality from any other app with iOS 8’s native share sheet.

In addition, Metapho has a new Safe Share feature, available in the app itself and through the Action extension, that temporarily removes metadata before sharing.

The new Metapho update also includes the following improvements and fixes:

  • Removing metadata functionality now also deletes location data in the Photos Library database. And restoring works as expected too.
  • You’ve seen sudden jump of information view when you’re swiping through photos? Fixed.
  • Gigantic, huge image’s thumbnail black–out is fixed.
  • Honest sorry screen added: A photo edit extension can’t handle a panorama image properly.
  • Little glitches here and there fixed.

Originally released for iPhone and iPod touch, Metapho has also been updated with universal support for iPad. What’s more, it’s now optimized for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later, the new and improved universal version of Metapho is available now on the App Store for free.

Note that Remove Metadata and Safe Share are premium features that may be unlocked via a single $1.99 in-app purchase.
