Commons app - version 2.7 release

Josephine Lim
 Hi all,

We've just released version 2.7 of the Commons Android app ! \o/ The new
version is available for download on the Google Play Store[1] as well as
F-Droid[2].

This update includes several new features:

- New "Nearby places that need pictures" UI with direct uploads (and
associated category suggestions) - Two-factor authentication login -
Notifications activity to display Commons user talk messages - Real-time
location tracking in Nearby - Improvements to UI of navigation drawer,
tutorial, media details view, login and settings - Option to nominate
picture for deletion in media details view

We are also thrilled to be mentoring two new contributors for this year's
GSoC - Tanvi Dadu and Ujjwal Agrawal. :)

Thank you all for your support and encouragement thus far! More details and
screenshots can be found in my blog post[3]. Feedback, bug reports, and
suggestions are always welcome on our GitHub page[4].


Best regards,
Josephine (project maintainer)

Re: Commons app - version 2.7 release

James Hare-5
It’s worth noting that (to the best of my knowledge) having a release for both iOS and Android is not trivial, seeing as they’re entirely separate platforms with separate programming languages, SDKs, approval workflows, and publication/release systems.

Re: Commons app - version 2.7 release

In reply to this post by Josephine Lim
Hi zppix e,

We have been wanting to release an iOS app, but it depends entirely on
whether we are able to get an iOS developer on board, either as a volunteer
or paid (if we are able to obtain additional funding). The current team is
unfortunately all Android developers.

Do you know anyone who might be interested? :)

Best regards,
Josephine

Woohoo. That's exactly what i was always missing and was so great about the
old WikiLovesMonuments app.

Thank you very much!

>  Enabled two-factor authentication login

Also very nice, just wondering what the second factor is on mobile, since
usually that's a mobile app as well. Does that still make it 2 factors?

P.S. Crossposting to multiple mailing lists at once with CC: can be tricky,
maybe better send a separate mail to each.

I don't know any iOS developers, but I can ask some of the developers I
know if they do.

Hi Daniel,

Happy to hear that you like the new features! :)

Re: 2FA logins, that is an interesting question! However, it is not one
that is unique to our app, for if you log in to your 2FA-enabled Wikimedia
account on your mobile phone's browser, both factors can also be on the
same mobile device. ;) Perhaps someone more well-versed in
security/authentication than I am could be better placed to answer that
question.

Point noted re: the CCs, thanks!


Best regards,
Josephine

Re: Commons app - version 2.7 release

David Barratt
2 Factor Authentication can be broken up like this:
- Something you have
- Something you know

The "something you have" can be anything in your possession, this could be
hard things like a U2F <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_2nd_Factor>
device, a smartphone, or soft things like a phone number or an email
address.

The "something you know" is something that can be stored inside your head,
which is almost always a password or pin number of some kind.

So since the mobile app (or any mobile app for that matter) still requires
something you have and something you know, it is still 2 factors.

Re: Commons app - version 2.7 release

David Barratt
Also.... There's no reason an app or website needs to have a password, to
have a password-less authentication, they would just have a single-factor
authentication on "something you have".

In this setup, if you were to enable 2-factor authentication, you would
then provide "something you know" (i.e. a password).

I've noticed a growing trend to get rid of passwords in the industry
because, it's not a very good user experience and it's not a very good
security practice either And honestly, it's not a terrible idea, I don't
have to remember a password to get into my home or car, I just have to have
a key.
