GPS Not Working
I love this app and use it regularly. Quite often I am able to complete my postings for photo claims before I leave the cemetery. I do wish that I could edit the plot from within the app. I have to do it from the web site for memorials that I do not manage. My big problem right now is that the GPS function is not working. I always mark the GPS coordinates for the graves I take photos of. For the last few months, the coordinates are not being entered on the memorials. I checked location services on my phone and it is turned on ALWAYS for Find A Grave. I sent an email from the Find A Grave web site about this weeks ago, but have not heard back. I confirmed today that it is still not working. Could not find any other place to contact the developer.
Cemetery photo upload
App is great for taking pictures of memorials and then uploading them once I get on WiFi. However, if I take a picture of the cemetery itself from within the app it will not upload. The app just sits there with the green bar cycling. I have also tried the choose existing photo option and the same problem occurs.
I must delete the cemetery photo before the app will continue uploading memorials. If I had taken the photo from within the app it is lost after the delete.
Love this app, but...
I've given numerous positive reviews for this app. It's close to perfect.
However, just recently it now has some sort of spyware or something that automatically redirects you to download games from iTunes store. This happens constantly on my iPhone while I'm navigating on the findagravre mobile web site. I understand that this isn't actually directly related to findagrave's app, but it occurs only on my mobile device.
This is so irritating that I started using findagrave only on my PC. I have no desire at this moment to contribute any of my work to the site until it's fixed. My iPhone is my #1 tool I use when I do my volunteering. I hope it's fixed soon.
Also...any photo I upload through findagrave app will only appear as a "grave photo" no matter what. Even clicking on the other types of photos (person, family or other) will not work. They all appear as a grave photo on the site.
