This app started as an official Wikimedia app, before being abandoned in 2014 to focus on the Wikipedia app. As a result, this app is now maintained by volunteers.
The app is currently used across the world to upload about 30 new pictures per day (List of pictures uploaded in the last 24 hours). Some of them have been recognized as "Valued Images" and "Quality Images".
In May 2016, after following the Developing an official app procedure, the Android app's maintainer Nicolas Raoul signed a contract with WMF allowing the app to use the official Wikimedia Commons name and logo.
In September 2016, Josephine Lim became the new maintainer of the app.
