Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

Step 1: I pinned locations using the iNaturalist website.

Step 2: Pinned locations are not accessible when I use the app and I use the app 99% of the time. I only used the website so I could pin frequently visited locations hoping it would speed up my posts using the app.

Step 3

This isn’t a bug as access to pinned locations has never been an option in the iOS app.

I’m curious as to your use case for need pinned locations in the app. What kind of photos are you uploading via the app? If you’re taking photos with your phone’s camera, you theoretically shouldn’t need to add or change locations much, unless you’re uploading a older photos that don’t have GPS data embedded in them.

Closing as this isn’t a bug with the iOS app. There is an existing bug report for accessing pinned location in the apps here:
