Clicking on mapframe static map (or maplink link) in Android app doesn't launch dynamic map
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

The same bug reported for the iOS app in T193312 is also present in the Android app.

Original description on T193312

mapframe map

  1. In the iOS or Android app, go to the Catalan Wikipedia article for San Francisco. (mapframe is enabled on ca.wiki).
  2. In the info box, you'll find a static map that was generated by mapframe.
  3. Click on the map

Expected behavior: launch a dynamic map, probably in a web browser. (An "expand" icon should also appear in the upper-right corner of the static map).
Actual behavior: go to the "no javascript" fallback for the maps page, showing the coordinates of where you clicked.

maplink map

The results here are the same if you click on a "maplink" (a related featured to mapframe, but the map is not embedded on the page; it's just a link on the page that opens a map in a popup).

  1. E.g., go to this article of Bays Precinct
  2. Click on the link in the upper-right corner of the page.

Collaboration team plans to bring mapframe maps to literally hundreds of Wikipedias, including English, in May. This new capability willl surely raise the profile and usage of mapframe and maplink maps. Without the dynamic map, a huge portion the advantage mapframe and maplink maps bring is missing. Please consider same for this ticket ( and related ticket ) as you prioritize ios tasks for action.

We'll leave it up to the Android app team to prioritize this one.

I can't even see the map on the Android app right now. Rather annoying since more and more articles now use mapframe.
So the mobile version is better than the Android app version.
