[prMac.com] Paderborn, Germany - Independent developer, Dirk Stichling is today proud to announce the 10th anniversary of myTracks, his easy-to-use photo geotagging app for macOS. In celebration of the anniversary, the popular app is now available for a greatly reduced price (50% off) for a limited time.

myTracks is the swiss-army knife macOS app for GPS tracks. GPS tracks can be downloaded from various hardware GPS loggers and organize the tracks into a library. The tracks can be displayed on a map, using various map types. myTracks' geo-tagging feature allows it to write GPS information into photo files (both jpg and raw).

"Ten years ago, I created myTracks to be the do-it-all utility for organizing your GPS tracks. They can be loaded from a broad range of devices, and the app organizes them into an easily accessibly library," says the developers of the myTracks app, Dirk Stichling. "The app has become extremely popular in the Mac App Store, earning a rating of 4.8 of 5 stars in the German Mac App Store and 4.6 stars in the U.S. Mac App Store."

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of myTracks, the price of the app will be discounted for a limited time beginning December 10th.

myTracks can be used with the macOS "Photos" app, as well as numerous other photo organizing applications, including Adobe Lightroom, GraphicConverter, or even the macOS Finder. myTracks handles the JPEG and RAW photos formats.
