Apologies for reviving this, but it would be very useful for the Commons Android app if we could query this. Several users have requested to be able to see the total number of uploads they have made to Commons, but we are unable to show it to them.

This issue is currently tracked at https://github.com/commons-app/apps-android-commons/issues/144 , please refer there instead (sorry, @Aklapper , we had to do some housekeeping in our GitHub issues).

Thanks for the suggestion. We do have plans to add more licenses to the app - the task is currently tracked at https://github.com/commons-app/apps-android-commons/issues/254 . Unfortunately I don't have the time currently to implement it, due to other commitments. However, I have outlined the steps needed for implementation on that GitHub thread, and it would make a good starter task for someone wanting to get involved with our codebase, so if any volunteers are interested in picking it up, that would be great. :) Alternatively, I could include it (along with adding explicit license selection, as the current license selection method is less than ideal) in my IEG renewal proposal at the start of next year.

Hi @Qgil , yes I completed this task during the Dec 2015 Outreachy round. :)
Closing this, if anyone disagrees please feel free to reopen.

Feature parity with the Android Commons app makes a lot of sense to me. I don't have much iOS experience, but my opinion is that using Swift might make it easier to recruit and on-board new volunteers, compared to a legacy app that is running Objective-C.

My $0.02 as a woman and a first-time participant thinking of applying to attend the Wikimedia Hackathon 2017:

Just to clarify, are you requesting this feature for the web-based Upload Wizard? Commons-App-Android-Upload is for the Commons Android app.
Oct 11 2016
Excellent, happy to hear that!
Oct 6 2016
This would be great. AFAIK there isn't even an 'unofficial' iOS app for this any more, last I checked it had been pulled from the store because the developer's account had expired (see here).

@Aschroet - Ah, I looked into the developer console history to refresh my memory and yes, there was a mixup before. About a year ago, I was new to the app and it was my first release, so I mistakenly titled the release after 1.3 as '1.31'. :) I was informed of the error and fixed it, but that was a while later, so some uploads must have gone through.
Sep 17 2016
I will have to release a hotfix for another bug anyway, so no harm putting this in v1.31 and seeing how it goes. Do let me know. :)

Interesting, I'm not sure in what cases a picture would have a geolocation of (0,0). If the EXIF data did not exist it should be returning null, and thus excluded from appending the location template. I don't think this is as easy a fix as the previous one (unless we're okay with excluding location templates in cases where that value is found as well). Will ask on GitHub.

Thanks @Aschroet . I forgot to clarify: updates do take a while to go through on Google Play, and users don't always update their apps immediately, so it might take a few days for any changes to get to the majority of users. But if the issue persists beyond that time frame, then I will need to look at it again. :)
We have released v1.30 of the app which should hopefully fix the issue. Please do let us know if it persists, thanks!

Thanks for letting us know! We'll work on it (https://github.com/commons-app/apps-android-commons/issues/269)

From memory, if I take photos of a well-known cafe, Google pops up one notification saying something like "Add 5 pictures to Punnet Cafe" or similar. It includes both photos of food etc as well as photos of the location, so I doubt image recognition plays a big part. If I recall correctly, it even includes selfies, which might be an issue in our case. (I know that the pictures displayed on Google Maps don't include selfies, so I'm guessing they filter them out after submission)

@Jane023 it is a built-in functionality that I wrote for the Android app about 6 months ago. I don't think it can be converted to the web uploader per se, different programming language entirely.
The Commons Android app already contains the functionality you are requesting, if I understand correctly. Not sure about the web-based Upload Wizard.

The Android app for this does exist at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fr.free.nrw.commons . It supports the 'share' option, you can browse through your gallery, click 'share' and select our app from the list of potential apps displayed.
I think this has been settled. Could anyone confirm and close?

Thanks @Qgil ! I glanced at the guidelines which suggested that I email email@example.com with the blog post idea first before writing a draft, so I've done that. Crossing my fingers.... :)

@Niharika thanks! I had no idea we could speak at conferences about our projects. :)

Final update: Not sure if this is where it should go, but I just wanted folks to know that the internship has been awesome - I've learnt heaps about FOSS, Android development and Wikimedia. And the community has been amazing. :) I'm very much hoping to stick around - I've submitted an IEG proposal for further work on the app, and I'll try to help or share my experiences with the next round of Outreachy applicants as well.
Just letting you know that we haven't forgotten, I have added your bug report to the list of bugfixes planned for the app as part of an IEG proposal. :) Would very much appreciate it if you could take a look at the proposal and review/endorse it if you see fit.
No probs Johan. :)
Thanks @Niharika , that would be great!

Do you mean the features listed in the report? They have been implemented and are available in v1.12 of the app that was released on Feb 18.
Apologies, I would love to but will be unable to make the stipulated time (19:00 UTC, right?). But thanks for asking me, and do let me know if there is a way to work around that. :)
Thanks for asking me. :) What would that involve? Is there a page where I could read more about it?
Sure thing, thanks for the nudge @01tonythomas :)
Feb 29 2016
Thanks everyone, it's been a great ride! @Niharika I definitely plan to. :)
Feb 26 2016
No problems, done. :)
Hi @Niharika, should I put in the relevant links or is this solely for the mentors to do?
Feb 25 2016
Thanks @Niharika ! :) I've edited the wiki.
Feb 24 2016
Thanks @01tonythomas :)
Feb 23 2016
@Nicolas_Raoul Okay, done! :)
@Nicolas_Raoul Sorry, not too clear about this - do you think we should remove the entirety of the features list? I have pared it down quite substantially already.
@Nicolas_Raoul thanks, that clears things up a lot. :) Which 'user guide' stuff do you mean? I have been modifying the first one over the past few hours and I think I've taken out most of the irrelevant stuff, but I might have missed something?
@Nicolas_Raoul ah okay, thanks. Hrmm so I should update both https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Apps/Commons and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Mobile_app ? Doesn't it seem a bit redundant to have so many pages about the same apps? Would be harder for future contributors to update also.
Modified https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Apps/Commons . @Nicolas_Raoul do you know which the most current repo for the iOS app is so we can link to them also? The repo on that page hasn't been updated for 3 yrs.
Feb 22 2016
Thanks for the feedback @Nicolas_Raoul ! I changed the rationale for #1, but still not sure how to explain what we did for #3 without referring to prefix search. Will think on it...
