I cannot get a GPS fix
iObs asks for permission to use location services. If you have not given permission, it will not be asked again but getting a location will just fail. Fix and correct this by checking the permissions of iObs in the phone’s Settings.
I cannot add a photo.
Same as for location: iObs asks for permission to access the camera and photo library once. If you don’t have access, please fix and correct this by checking the permissions of iObs in the phone’s Settings.
I cannot export uploaded observations
