Having date and time stamped on photos taken by iPhone camera – is a small but essential feature was missing in iOS but made possible via Cydia. I looked for different apps on the iTunes store than would let me do it, but none of them impressed me. Now, it is possible to imprint date and time on photos taken on iPhone camera with stamper app available on Cydia. This is a tweak that is only available to jailbroken devices.
I wanted this feature desperately so that I can take photos of my baby boy growing day-by-day, have date and time stamped automatically on pictures taken of him. It makes more sense to keep such record of pictures sometimes.
We get this feature on other mobile phones & digital cameras as well, but we tend not to use it often. Moreover, they do not allow us to change the font size, color etc.
About Stampr App
Allows you to have timestamps on photos inside camera.app. You can take a photo with the normal camera app, and will have two photos taken, one, which is the original, and one with the timestamp (Of slightly lower resolution) Easily customizable from settings, you can adjust the font size. The font color, even have custom text before the time stamp. You can have a 24 hour time if you’d like, and the time stamp also includes the date.
This app is developed by Maximus and maintained by BigBoss Repo. It creates duplicate low-res image with a real stamp hence no need to worry about getting rid of the stamp if I want to print it on a paper or make a photo frame of the picture.

I may not use it for all the pictures, but still – this is an amazing little feature very important for me and works exactly how I would love.
