Category talk:Uploaded with Mobile/Android

Without allowing automatical categorising, naming, and uploading of files, We are going to have a mess with uncategorised files. Its necessary to have the option of multiple uploads (numered) with a categorising option. Otherwise, this app will not be as powerful as it could. Besides, it gives problems when uploading files with "/" symbol, plus doesn't uploads (keeps in queue) files with a dot in its name.--Coentor (talk) 21:28, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Multiple numbered uploads is actually supported, but it's not obvious yet -- you have to do multiple selection in the Gallery app, then share them to the Commons app. Currently starting from the Commons app you can only select one at a time, I'm not sure if we can improve that on Android but we'll look into it.
Issues with bad names getting stuck in queue are known, I'll file some notes for that.
Automatic category suggestion is definitely something we're interested in but we haven't yet figured out the best way to handle it. The latest version should at least remember recently-used categories, which makes it easier when you're dealing with multiple related images. Name/search-based or location-based category suggestions may be farther down the line.
Thanks for the testing and feedback! --brion (talk) 16:45, 2 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, I know that some of the "issues" have been implemented. Thanks!--Coentor (talk) 21:23, 2 May 2013 (UTC)


Hi, several of files in this category also appear in Category:Media with erroneous locations because they contain {{Location|null}} (example: File:Schloss runkelstein südtirol - 9.jpg). Does somebody know where this comes from? --Arnd (talk) 19:22, 11 September 2016 (UTC)

I created an Phabricator issue. --Arnd (talk) 04:56, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
