The ability to extract metadata (EXIF) from imported photos from the photo-album
At the moment we can import photos from a device's photo album, but when the photo is imported it's very difficult to get the EXIF data. This is important for photo apps to get the image's GPS location, date-time(when the photo was taken), the photo's dimensions, orientation, resolution, device, etc.
In the simulator I'm able to extract the EXIF data, but when importing the image on a device, Corona SDK seems to strip away the EXIF data.
A simple way to get access to the EXIF data would be great.
A community plugin has support for this. See: https://marketplace.coronalabs.com/plugin/photo-lib-plus
