Yes, in order to use the Gigwalk app we need to be able to locate you when you use the app, and you’ll need to be able to take photos inside the app. When you install the app, it will ask for all needed permissions, so be sure to say YES. If you're having problems, then make sure the following settings are correct on your phone before you get started:
1) Check that Location Settings is on

For best results, please make sure that all (usually there are three) location services options in your phone are enabled.
1) Go to your iPhone Settings, Privacy, Location Services. Make sure Location Services is ON, and then scroll down to Gigwalk and make sure it is marked ON as well.
2) Go to your iPhone Settings, Privacy, Photos. Scroll down to Gigwalk and make sure it is marked ON.
