Unfortunately I had to shuffle a few things around this month. Hoping to have two next month.

I encountered this earlier in the week when explaining to another user how to add a taxon photo. It’s a useful tweak.Thanks.

Very nice, somehow I missed that post. Flagging that the readme file for the INaturalistIOS repo references a roadmap that was last updated in 2018. I think the link should be removed as it causes confusion, especially in light of the new React native app plans.

Thanks, I updated the readme to point to iNatRN instead.
