Good point. Typically I take pictures when I'm on a trip and at home. And I have them all broken down into albums. So I'm not sure geotagging would really do anything. I know where I was when I took it. Maybe to help me find my car in a parking lot.Wirelessly posted (Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 5_0_1 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/534.46 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.1 Mobile/9A405 Safari/7534.48.3)
iPods use local wifi data to see where you are.
As for the camera app on the iPhone geotagging is fine unless your recording video then the gps stays active and it eats battery life for breakfast!
I have a lot of pictures from years gone by where I'd enjoy knowing the particular spot the photo was taken. Even though I know the general spot, on some trips such as backpacking it'd be nice to know the particular place along the trail. Sure, keeping a journal of each photo is a great way to handle this, having the geotag is a nice plus.Good point. Typically I take pictures when I'm on a trip and at home.

iPhoto does this on Mac. When viewing an album, click on "Info" at the bottom and a sidebar pops up showing picture info as well as a map. As you select different photos in an album it changes the map / pin to the spot the photo was taken.I think I might use it more if the picture itself had the map associated with it. What I mean is I have to go to places to see where the picture was taken. I can't go to albums and go into Williamsburg then say oh this shot is really cool let me show you where it was taken. And open the map from the picture. I have to go to places and find it on the map.
