(1) Best geotagging app? (2) Set to GPS only?

I have been using Geotag Photos 2 with an iPhone 6S, a MacBook Air, and Lightroom. When importing the log into Lightroom and syncing with photos, I find (a) the accuracy is very variable; and (b) a lot of pictures are wrongly tagged because the app is getting the time wrong. There seem to be occasional random time shifts - even after I have been very careful to synchronise the clock on the camera with the clock on the phone.

Are there other geotagging apps that people have found reliable? There seem to be a number of options, but it's hard to find out which ones work and which don't.

Subsidiary question: Is it best to rely on GPS only (a relatively weak signal but probably more accurate), or allow the phone also to use also triangulation with mobile data sources (which are probably stronger but less accurate)?

Any experiences welcome.
