    I am looking at houses. I want to take a picture of the house. Ideally, it would log the address. Then I could enter in some notes.

    After I am done looking, I would have pictures in my gallery that would tell me where the house was and what my thoughts were. After looking at 6 houses in a day, this would help job my memory.

    Even if I could just add notes to the picture, I could type in the address, but it would be better if the gps just added it.

    Anyone know of anything like this. I gotta believe that with people looking at real estate, this app would be terrific.

    Does your device's camera app not have geotagging? That doesn't address adding notes but it should tag your photos with the location. Granted, it's latitude/longitude and not the address itself. Even with GPS accuracy at its best it is possible for the address to be ambiguous.

    There is a way to turn on gps for pictures. not sure how that shows up on the pic, but assumed it was lat/lon. That is not really useful. Was hoping that somehow it would have address.

    Can add address via notes, but haven't found a way to add a note when i take a picture.

    Sounds like a job for Evernote. You can create a new "snapshot" note. It will let you take a picture and automatically record the location (not sure if it is physical address or lat / log). You can then add your notes. All is synced to their servers, so you can view the pictures either from the Evernote app on your phone or their website or their desktop client.
