    I'm running the iOS 8 GM and noticed that when I take a new photo from the Messages app, that photo will be added to the photo library without geotag information.

    I tested this in several locations. I'm running the iOS 8 GM on an iPhone 5C. Can anyone else replicate the problem?

    I don't have iPhoto on my mac so I can't add my own geotag. I wish it were possible to edit geotag information directly from the iPhone.

    I have the same thing. Also I took a picture using the hangouts app and no geotag. Maybe apps that access the camera cannot use its location?
