"Save and add another observation" to streamline adding obs from mobile

A “Save and add another” button at the bottom of the observation edit screen would be a huge improvement to my field experience using the iNat Android app.

Also, 99+% of the time I add a new observation from the app, I take a photo rather than choose an image from the gallery. I would like to be able to default to “Take Photo” rather than have to select it every time I add an observation. Looks like this is already the default option on iOS. Clicking “Save and add another” could then immediately open the camera again, shaving off a few steps.

Current steps to create two observations on Android:

  1. Tap “(+)” to add observation
  2. Tap “Take photo”
  3. Take the photo
  4. OK
  5. Add other info, tap tiny check mark to save in far top right corner
  6. Tap “(+)” to add observation
  7. Tap “Take Photo”
  8. Take the photo
  9. OK
  10. Add other info, tap tiny check mark to save in far top right corner

Preferred steps to create two observations:

  1. Tap “(+)” to add observation
  2. Take the photo
  3. OK
  4. Add other info, tap big “Save and add another” button
  5. Take the photo
  6. OK
  7. Add other info, tap big “Save” button

Alternatively, this design would also be faster for me to create a new observation, if it’s not possible to default to taking a photo when creating a new observation

(Though scrap all this because a live form of computer vision like Seek 2.0, with manual ID input options on the camera view, combined with GPS tracking is my real request :star_struck:)
