[Upd] Nokia Location Tagger updated to 1.0 beta 2
Nokia Beta Labs have just updated Nokia Location Tagger. What's new:

* Support for more devices. This version should work on most S60 3rd Edition devices.
* Improved usability. Many of you mentioned that GPS takes some time to lock and sometimes you miss the moment. Two improvements have been made: if there is no GPS signal when you capture a picture, it will be tagged with the last known good position in the last 1 hour. The previous version uses 10 minutes only. If there is no last known good position in the last 1 hour, the picture will be put in a queue until timeout. If your device is able to lock the position before timeout, all pictures in the queue will be tagged with this new position.
* Added "Show on map" feature to show the location of the picture on Nokia Maps. This feature works only on S60 3rd FP1 devices with Nokia Maps installed, such as Nokia N95.
* Many bug fixes, including the battery drain bug.

Get the new version from Nokia Beta Labs.
