Observation will not sync

Platform: Android

App version number: 1.15.2

URLs (aka web addresses) of any relevant observations or pages: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/60562503

Description of problem:

Step 1: Sometimes when I use the mobile app, it will create a blank observation as linked in the two observations above. I see no reason to delete the observations so the next time I iNat something with my phone, I will edit the blank observation and add the photos, location and time.

Step 2: The first linked observation should be a moth and the second a deer. I took a third observation today on a fresh observation but since the previous two observations won’t sync to the internet, that one won’t either.

Step 3: I have tried refreshing the page, closing the app and even restarted my phone but nothing is letting it sync to iNat. The green bar will say “preparing to sync” but it will disappear and do nothing. So on my phone, the three observations are “waiting to upload…” and the bar is green. On my computer, these observations are no photo, no location, no date, no id casual sightings.

I don’t see why not delete blank ones, it synch really fast with the database and cause no problems, as I remember last time someone had problem with synchronise it was advised to log out from the app, if (as I read it) your photos are saved in phone memory it should help.
