I don’t know about you all but I personally enjoy looking at the settings and tools people used in order to create particular images I like. You couldn’t read such data and more on your iPhone before however this has been made possible through the ViewExif app, which I found to be very useful and easy to use.

For those of you who don’t know ‘exif’ is an abbreviation of Exchangeable Image File. This is a standard when it comes to storing interchange information present in digital image files through JPEG compression.

The ViewExif app/extension, as the name implies, allows users to view the EXIF data for any photo from the Photo app. Even if you don’t know how to use extension apps before, you will find ViewExif easy to use. When you launch the app you will be met with a brief visual tutorial.
