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: OpenApp

Step 2: “Preparing” notice

Step 3: “Syncing 1 out of 912 objects”

This number of objects represents all of my observations over the past year. Meanwhile, 25 new observations are “Waiting to upload.” I tried leaving the app open and refreshing it a number of times and occasionally, the number of objects to be synced drop one or two but something is not right. I’ve used the app with the same phone for a year without a problem.
