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)
