The rGPS app for iPhone/iPad is OUT!

Really Good Photo Spots is an iPhone app that helps photographers find the best photography locations anywhere in the world.

It allows users to find locations near them, search for locations in a distant land, add their own locations, and share photos of the best spots on earth.

    Unrivaled database of photo spots

    Unlike other apps like Trey Ratcliff's Stuck on Earth which simply crawl Flickr and grab geotagged photos, the thousands of spots in rGPS were manually submitted by photographers around the world. This fixes the problem of the notoriously unreliable and inaccurate geotags in other apps.

    Every Spot is Manually Reviewed and Vetted

    When a user uploads a new spot in the app, it goes directly to a professional photographer at Improve Photography who double-checks the GPS coordinates for accuracy, adds helpful information about the spot, and assigns a star rating. This provides accuracy in information and consistency in star ratings.

    Thousands of spots cover the globe

    Many dozens of photo spot apps have been released over the years. None have gained traction because they simply didn't have good data when the app was launched. rGPS will improve over time as users upload even more spots, but we're launching with many thousands of spots so every user has a good experience the first time they use it.

Free Version

  • Basic search functionality gives you access to all the spots in the database
  • Add new spots to remember for later
  • Ad supported to defray monthly server costs

We're adding every day.

iPhone/iPad ONLY?

We really wish we could launch with an Android and web version of the app as well, but the development costs were simply too high. We're launching first with iPhone and iPad since 63% of Improve Photography readers are on iOS.

But fear not!

We have an Android and web version coming as soon as we can recoup some of our development costs. Click the button to sign up for email updates when the Android version is available.
