Greetings WLM Members,

We have updated the app on Google
some important fixes and enhancements.

Here is a separate download link:


Changes in this version:

* Dynamically load campaign data - picks up campaign config changes without
requiring a new version of the app

* Camera and location features marked as optional to increase device

* Localisation updates

* Increased accuracy when communicating with GPS satellites

* Disables 'Cancel upload' button when it is too late to cancel

* Bigger touch areas for checkboxes

* Moves {{Uploaded with WLM Mobile}} template to the source field on file

* Translated country name on monument page

* Fixed admin level display

* Strip bold/italic apostrophe markup from wikitext fields

* 'Back' after upload no longer returns you to upload progress

* Consistent photo upload comments

* Cache monuments in certain situations to reduce API calls

* Monument pin clustering disabled when zoomed in

* Lossless image compression

The app is now also available of the FOSS market, F-droid, at:


We are working on more fixes and enhancements, including a handy way to
upload more photos on Commons. This will make any mobile upload a
convenient placeholder for desktop uploads.

Please let us know if you have any issues by email or on the feedback

We have a new page for help with monument data issues:
