I haven't been able to repro this on my ipad (which is logged in/syncs) nor on my iPhone (fresh install, no sync) on 6.5. My guess is this library got stuck in a bad state or had a relatively unique database issue, and this is probably not worth further investigation.
The basic fix here is that once you select an image from the gallery view, it should not dismiss the gallery view.
Yes, this is an issue we take seriously. There’s a filter in place which has worked reasonably well – we haven't had many reports in the four years this feature has existed – but obviously not well enough in this case. We’ve addressed the immediate issue, as well as a subsequent concern about another article, and are looking into a long-term solution to make sure this kind of obvious fraud doesn’t happen again. Take a look at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T236121 if you're interested in improving our Most Read filters. As elsewhere noted, these filters are a shared piece of infrastructure across web, gadgets and apps, and is used across languages, so we need to be deliberate about these changes; but it is our responsibility to make them. Should a similar problem, in the meantime, appear again, we're setting up a process to be able to act more immediately on reports of spam: please reach out to us in this this ticket (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T238942) for the time being. We're also creating a pre-filled form where you can answer a couple of questions about problematic articles, which will be routed to us directly, so you don't have to try to navigate the whole ticket system or get ahold of someone to get items added to the exclusion list.

Excellent work all!
@Krinkle you raise a number of interesting points about the accuracy of bot edit counts. However, I don't think any of them are so severe as to prevent initial development and release of this element of the new design. I'd like to reassure you that we have built the UI so that stats with longer return times load and appear smoothly when available.
Pushing into 6.6 for the sub-tasks that are still open. Primary priorities are:
@Ammarpad thanks for your contribution. This should now be fixed in the App Store version.
