myTracks is the swiss-army knife for organizing your GPS tracks. They can be loaded from a broad range of devices and organized in a library comfortably.
Once imported you can drag & drop photo files to myTracks and they will be assigned to the GPS tracks automatically. The GPS information can be written to the EXIF and IPTC tags of the photo files (Geotagging). You can use any photo organizing software such as Photos, iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom, GraphicConverter or even the Finder. myTracks can handle both JPEG and RAW file formats.
GPS tracks can be exported as GPX, KML or KMZ files. You can use the exported files, e.g. with Google Earth.
Besides the dedicated GPS loggers a free iPhone App called "myTracks - The GPS logger" is available on the App Store. You can use this App to record GPS tracks.
Using iCloud you can easily synchronize all your tracks between all your devices (iOS and OS X).
See the supporting website for more screenshots, screencasts and the complete list of supported loggers.

my Tracks used to geo-tag photos - I use this program to tag photos after hikes or other outdoor activites in conjunction with a GPS watch (Garmin 405). Basically you import the GPS file in GPX format and then drag the photos from iPhoto. There are a few easy steps and seconds later all of your photos are tagged to the exact location that they were taken from. The main trick is to keep your watch and camera clocks set at the exact same time. If you don't do this you have to go in and adjust the time stamps which is annoying. For city pics I use an eye-fi card. This program gives great results at a good price. Highly recommended.
Severely Out of Date - …when it comes to the GPS hardware now in existence and what the program supports. Sad really because it looks like the most logically designed GPS software out there. I had been trying to work with the author for a few weeks/months to get my GPS logger to work with the app, no luck and the author was of little help in the end. I have a popular logger and MyTracks does not support it. When I spoke to the author about about any possible recourse he simply stopped contacting me. I prompted him again and finally he came back with a lackluster response saying that the app store wouldnt offer me a refund. I thought I might just buy a different GPS and the one I settled on is not supported by the app either. So, unless there are substantial updates, id say you might want to talk to Dirk Stichling (the Author) before purchasing, or just avoid the app entirely.
