[Wiki Loves Monuments] Idea for WLM app's afterlife

Here is an idea:

Turn the WLM app into a similar app for uploading photos related to
Wikipedia articles. This was in fact the original goal of the mobile photo
upload project.

One take on this is to use the Nearby search and article search as a way to
find articles, then the upload will be given a title related to the article
and some metadata can include the article ID.

The WLM app will otherwise run the risk of not being functional past
October, due to backend issues.

Just a quick thought. Let the mobile team know if you think this is a good
