I downloaded the app for android - it is very limited (particularly compared to our WLM app), but when you select a monument to photograph it asks you to confirm that the photo be licensed appropriately - at least monuments near me are prompting for CC-BY-SA license. I presume [perhaps incorrectly] that they're pulling the correct license information for the campaigns, but I cannot be sure. However, the license does not appear to be appropriately honored on their site and it is unclear how the photos get to commons (or even if they do at all).

It would probably be wise to follow up with human.io to get these questions answered publicly so users are not in danger of being misled.

I doubt it, looks like it's not that much of a good idea after all. It
seems to me that the pictures are currently being uploaded to their
server, and the pictures are copyrighted by Tasty Labs, Inc. Not to
mention that they are using the Wikipedia trademark, and I very much
doubt that they have contacted the Wikimedia Foundation about it.

I'll be contacting Tasty Labs with all those questions in a minute.
