App singularity?

@tiwane Just curious…. What does this mean?
“ I don’t think this will be implented in the iOS app before the apps become a singularity”

From Feature Request:

Easy way to swipe through observations on the app


Oh. :hugs: I did not know the projected cross platform app was being referred to as the “Singularity”, which has a rather unique ring to it as project names go, IMO.

Are there been any reports of where it’s going since the announcement 4 months ago? I may have missed such as I gave up trying to read every forum post a long time back :wink:. I don’t read GitHub much, if at all.

I gather it is a pretty arduous task to map this all out and get the melding plan and design engineered. I might expect iNat has a provisional timetable established, but cannot share it with us? This sort of explains why there is little apparent progress with the new onboarding project or acceptance of many feature requests.

I imagine getting such work all funded by NatGeo is a very time consuming effort, also.

Still, keen to see it happens, with it’s (presumed) gorgeous new functionality.

i don’t know that your statement here is true, but the merging of the apps is what tiwane was referring to when he talked about a singularity.

“the Singularity” in the context of technological innovation often is thought of as a potentially bad thing for the human race, but a singularity, in the context of tiwane’s statement, just refers to one vs two.

I had one eye squeezed shut when I wrote those statements above. :wink:
Perhaps you also had one eye squeezed shut. :crazy_face:

If THE Singularity happens, we might not be too concerned about apps on iNat or anywhere else.


maybe inat is what leads to the Singularity???

What if iNat’s CV becomes The Singularity?
