It should be more comfortable. Right now it seems as usual. Many new
contributors doesn't handle it friendly.

I've been working on improving the Wikimedia Commons Android app for
the past couple of months. In addition to several bugfixes and minor
improvements, we've just rolled out a new feature - a list of nearby places
that need photos!
This feature pulls locations without photos from a file maintained by the
Wiki Needs Pictures project and arranges them in order of proximity to
the user's position. Tapping on an item in the list brings the user to
their phone's map app with the coordinates pinned. To access this feature,
select 'Nearby' (or the icon of a guy with a flag) from the action bar
(menu) of the app.
The current implementation is a very basic/bare-bones version, as we want
to gauge users' response and feedback before working on any enhancements.
So please do try it out, see how it works for you, and feel free to report
any bugs or suggest any enhancements on our Google Group forums or
GitHub issues page.
Please note that you will need to allow the app to access your location in
order for this feature to work. Also, as the list is rather large, initial
loading might take a while.
