@Jdforrester-WMF How can not displaying the correct license (or any license at all) be low priority? This should be somewhere near Unbreak Now, due to vioalting copyrights...

Oh, sorry, you mis-tagged it as a Multimedia Team piece of work and it got mass-categorised.

@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.

Task prioritization is performed by the Apps team, hence resetting to default value. See documentation.

I think this is related to T101534, actually.

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:

License_Icon_Legend.png (470×1 px, 18 KB)

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.

@Josve05a, you are talking about the general view of any image on the app when you click on, i.e: the gallery view like the one below. Correct?

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.

@Slaporte, does CC require that the license name as well as a link to the license agreement are found on the same page with the media file? Thanks

No, it can be on a page that is linked from the image. So if there would be an (i)-icon at the bottom which could take you to the image's description page (mobile web). That would work

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.
