It's possible to use metadata from photos to set the date and location for your entries. This is particularly handy when you want to just snap photos on vacation, then write about the moment later.

Generally, when you add a photo with location metadata there will be a prompt to use this information for your entry when you add it. There is also a manual option to set the entry date/time/location to match what is in the photo. 

iOS
