It’s not a photo app per se, but it’s a unique way to see where your photo was taken. MapScratch is a fun way to discover the location where an image was taken. Simply choose the image and start “scratching” the map by touching the screen and swiping.

MapScratch is from the developer of the excellent NoIMGData, which I’ve previously reviewed. It features a simple, easy to use interface, the ability to open the exact location in the Maps app, and the ability to see the time and date when the picture was taken. Note: for MapScratch to be able to view location information from images, you need to allow it to use Location Services.
MapScratch is a Universal app, meaning it’ll work great on an iPhone or iPad. It normally sells for $0.99. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 4.2 or later.
