to maintain meta information of photos based on an xml, or json so that we
can not only collect and maintain info of photos but also make our photo
gallery on mobile or any photo related applications to give useful info on
creative ways.
Also when we are sending photoes from one phone to another we can send the
meta xml as well and from that the other application can interpret those
information and use them effectively

E.g usecase is if we go on a trip and with our phone we take photos on the
go at various places and our application and find out when and at what
place the photos was taken and it also automatically create a google trip
and on the trip map it show all the photos at the places where we took them.

Similarly we can have many such creative functions on photark mobile
