Here is an idea:

Turn the WLM app into a similar app for uploading photos related to Wikipedia articles. This was in fact the original goal of the mobile photo upload project.

One take on this is to use the Nearby search and article search as a way to find articles, then the upload will be given a title related to the article and some metadata can include the article ID.

The WLM app will otherwise run the risk of not being functional past October, due to backend issues.

Just a quick thought. Let the mobile team know if you think this is a good idea.
