    Hi,

    Is it possible, when using the iOS 9 Photos App, to edit a photo's title, description and geotag?

    I can do this under the Photos App in Mac OS X, but I can't seem to do it under iOS 8.

    Thanks!

    Based on what I have read, this functionality used to exist in iPhoto for iOS, but hasn't made it back into Photos. Can anyone recommend an App as a stop gap until iOS Photos catches up?

    I'd love the ability to tag my photos so I don't need to do it on my Mac. I took them with my phone, why not let me tag them there?

    Most google searches bring up an app called Photo Investigator, but this seems to have not been updated in 2015, which makes me wary about considering it.

    A search in iTunes reveals many apps that can access the photo meta data, but none really talk about the title or the description. Unless that's automatically implied with meta data...

    Any recommendations of apps that people use and enjoy using would be appreciated.

    I've not really had much luck with this. Has anyone found a decent iOS app for editing the meta data? Specifically I want to edit descriptions or titles.

    Here are some of the meta data apps I have used: Metapho, viewexif, imeta photos, photo data.
    HashPhotos app allow you to add tags but those tags don't show up in Apple's photo app or other apps, so tags are locked into Hashphotos app, not very useful.
    btw, where do you see title of the photo?

    interaction with Apple Photos is something I really want. All of this information you can edit within the MacOS X version of photos, but not in the iOS version. Title is within the MacOS X version.
