Lately I've been scanning many old family photos and uploading them to my iCloud photo album. I also have many photos in my album that were sent to me by email or text that are missing metadata. It would be nice if I could enter a date and location for these. Also would be great if I could add a caption to some of them, but that is less necessary than the date and location. Is there a simple app that would allow me to edit metadata of photos that are already in my iClould photo album?

Nobody has any suggestions?
They're too busy debating the merits of whether an iPad can replace a laptop in the other forums! :p

To be honest, it might be easier to create a script on your computer to add particular details to photos than manually adding in the metadata on the iPad but I guess that would depend on the amount of photos to be modified etc. Hope it turns out OK mate.
