I'm happy to provide you with an additional app for iPhone and Android
mobile devices, developed by 123POI, a part of the MairDumont media
group, a publishing house in Germany with a focus on travelling. You
might know the Marco Polo travelling guides, and it also publishes the
Lonely Planet guides for the German-speaking market.
I created a page with (hopefully) all relevant information at Commons:
There are 2 main points that make this app different from our WMF WLM
app that might be interesting for you and your participants:
* iPhone availability
* geocoding of addresses - this app will find and show also monuments
without coordinates in Wikipedia on a map
The other difference is, that a user does not need to register at
Commons but in the app, and there will be a batch transfer of the images
to Commons (similar to some Flickr batch uploads for WLM beforem see the
test uploads here:
This might make it easier for new users to participate (no break in the
user flow), however these users won't be visible as new "Commons users".
The app will be improved by your feedback and I kindly ask you spread
the word and to test it as much as possible in the next days! Please put
all of your feedback to the page
, the developers will track this!
One last demand: If you find the app useful for your community and
participants, please show your appreciation by mentioning the app and
the sponsor on your local websites. I will provide you with some more
information about the sponsor soon.
