As Exif data is stored in photo files created using the device camera, it can be exploited to simplify apps as the information does not need to be implemented/duplicated using the DB. Hence, propose http://developer.android.com/reference/android/media/ExifInterface.html"> ExifInterface be considered for inclusion in a future release.

Note that equivalent functionality is available for iOS from version 4.0, according to http://developer.appcelerator.com/helpdesk/view/63941">this HD ticket.

This request also raised for iOS, in #3427.

    bump! ;)
    would be nice to access the geo location data of pictures inside the gallery.

    There shouldn't be any "bumping" going on in Lighthouse! ;) Simply watching a ticket is sufficient to show your interest in it. Developers will take the list of watchers into account for very popular tickets.

    Thanks for your understanding. :)

    hence the ";)"
    just wanted to point out that this is actually a very useful feature. kinda like tcpsockets for android.

    I believe more than a few people could benefit from the use of this interface. The mentioned ExifInterface seems stable and robust.

    Closing this ticket because I converted the iOS ticket to TiAPI. The first step. This support will most likely not be provide as a feature of the platform but as an additional module. It's status is TBD.
