Currently when an image is opened, you see a (cc) icon and the auhtors name, but not which cc-license it is under, nor a link to the file description page which is needed for proper attribution.

@Josve05a this needs to be in the Wikipedia-iOS-App-Product-Backlog so it can be properly prioritized and scheduled for development.
I'm placing it in the needs triaged column on that board.
FYI nothing gets added directly to the Wikipedia-iOS-App-Development, we do all of our prep work for a task in the product backlog.
No, not really. The "Share-A-Fact" is an extention of the app. Theonly thing which I found relevant wiht that task is this image:
Currently (when I checked and reported this) in the app it only displays these icons, but not the license or a link. That task is about printing the correct licenses on images shared with the app using this extension, not the image viewer in th eapp.
Yes, last time I checked (albeit being in May, so something may have changed) but there are no indication which license the image is licensed under (more that it being "CC", which isn't a license, but a "group" of licenses) when viewing that image above, nor is there an external link to the file description page, which you can get on Android from a dropdown menu.

So, is there any progress on this? If I understand correctly, this app is violating the copyright of nearly every file on Commons. Nevertheless this has been over for over half a year without any sign of progress. As the author and copyright owner of over 1000 files on Commons, I find this completely unacceptable and is absolutely against the spirit of the Wikimedia projects, especially since we demand care in licensing from our reusers. Either fix this with a high priority or remove the app.
