Updated iPhone App

Hi all,
My iOS app just updated to version 2.8.4 build 549 and now I can only add one photo at a time from my photo roll, as opposed to the four I used to be able to ‘choose’ at one time. I am calling this a 'bug; since it isn’t behaving like it used to, but it is more like a feature gone missing.


We’re working on adding multiple image selection again, but unfortunately it’s much more complicated than it may seem. More explanation here: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/multiple-images-selection-in-gallery-disabled-in-latest-update-and-photo-metadata-not-being-read/7519/32


Thanks, @carrieseltzer


Meantime, @rebeccafay, the web version at iNaturalist.org is working fine, and you may even find it’s preferable to adding observations with the mobile app (I do).

I’ve seen this behavior as well and unfortunately am just switching to desktop only

Hi @markmcknight,

I believe we fixed this bug in late November, with release 2.8.6 on iOS. If you’re willing to try again, I would love to know how it works for you. Apologies for the annoying behavior.

Happy holidays,

Hi Alex, I have the most recent update and i am still limited to 1 photo upload. Not to be dramatic or anything but its basically like my life is ending. Not sure i can go on :(

Incidentally, i also can only upload one photo at a time via desktop… and the drag and drop function doesnt appear to be working. at least not on the computer i am on!

Can you create a separate bug report either here or write in to help@inaturalist.org? It would be helpful to know which browsers and operating system you’re using, and where you’re dragging photos from.

will do :)
