We (the Commons app team) are hoping to release a Commons iOS app this
year! :) We have received quite a few requests for it, so we have included
it in our Project Grant proposal:
Additionally, we are proposing a few new features for the Android app, and
stability/code quality improvements.
If this sounds useful or interesting to you, please do take a look at our
proposal, and endorse it if you see fit. Or if you have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to email me or post in the discussion page.
Thank you so much for all of your encouragement and support. We really

We've just released v2.12 of the Commons app to production on the Play
Store! :) This contains the legacy code overhaul that we've been working
on for the better part of the last year, in order to reduce
difficult-to-debug issues and create a better foundation for stability and
One of the goals in this overhaul is to prevent the issue of failed
uploads which has plagued our users sporadically for years. According to
our beta testers' feedback, this issue has been solved - however, if you
are using v2.12 (can be seen in About page) on a *fresh install* and you
are still experiencing failed uploads, please do let us know so we can take
a look at it. Also, as this version contains the most lines of code changed
compared to any of our other versions, it is possible that there may be a
few teething issues that we are as of yet unaware about, but we will try to
fix any reported issues ASAP.
Also, we have a new feature: Filters for place types and states in Nearby
Places! With this feature, you should be able to filter for (or filter out)
specific types of places that need photos, and also filter out places that
are on Wikidata but don't "exist" anymore.
Thank you all for your support and patience. :)
