[iOS Tips] View Pictures By Location On Your iPhone

Now you can view photos of your favorite places on your iPhone and 3G-equipped iPad with the use of a new feature named “Places”. This  new feature in the Photos app allows you to see pictures based on geographical location.

From the iOS homescreen:

  • Tap on “Photos”, then at the bottom of the Camera Roll tap onto “Places”
  • Scroll and zoom on the Google Map to show pins for specific regions tagged with photos
  • Tap a red pin to see a photo count exclusive to that place, then tap the blue > arrow to see camera roll only for that location

This feature is only accurate to use if you have Location Services and geographic tagging enabled for the photos app.] [via - OSXDaily]
