Can we get video upload support soon?

Finally after newest Android update(2.4.1),

Can update the Monument Firmware (1.3.5)

How can I use cellular data if I must use Wifi to connect to Monument? Thank you.

Auto upload of selected folders seems works but I can't find some photos in app. They are photos sent to me by Viber app so there is no camera information in photo so I can't find them by Camera. Of course I can't search in 50k photos neither. I think they are actually uploaded but not at top of list(even though they were taken few days before). Please let us sort photos by photo taken time and upload time.

Also, I think manual upload should not be disabled when auto-upload is enabled because I may still want to upload some photos manually from non-selected folders.

At first thanks for the update. But it is really worse that the android app starts the auto upload without asking. It collected 4000 useless whatsapp pictures, screenshots and other stuff the should not go to the monument! Please deactivate the auto upload by default.
@Monument : thank you for your answer.
I need to be more precise about this issue. I noticed that the remaining pictures were taken by my present mobile phone. All the other pictures which were already present on my phone and previously uploded were taken with my preceding phones or other cameras.


@Joseph, all the new functionality we add takes care of the previously added contents, so if you cannot see old content on the world map, this seems like a bug. We're contacting you to follow up on this matter.

We're currently working on our improved facial recognition algorithms and will update the time plan accordingly. Improved image recognition will follow next.

@Yves and @Allistair, we have an issue where sometimes iOS app doesn't show the notification. A fix is submitted to the App Store, but in the meantime a workaround is to force app to initiate connection again by swiping from top and releasing it. Doing this a few times should work for the time being. See below:


@Joel, thank you for the suggestions. We're building a similar mechanism.

Dear Monument people.
This very last update has completely messed my Monument.
As of the moment I started to use Monument, there has been more than 700 photos uploaded.
Now there are hardly more than 100 remaining.
At the time Wordl Map was activated, only the pictures uploaded after that moment appeared on the map, not those already present.
Face recognition is still not as powerful as expected.
Unfortunately, I can see only one solution: start over. Reset the device and upload everything anew.

What about context recognition (sand, mountain, ...) ?...

Firmware and Android app at the latest version.

Any clue?


I am asked to approve the update in app but nothing shows in app. Where should I see the approve update button? (iOS)

New firmware update 1.3.5 ask to approve using the application (for iOS), but there is nothing in the app to be approved! (Using the last app provided by AppleStore) YM

I had the same issue as James (as well as not being able to delete photos). I received the iOS update via the App Store first, but didn't get the firmware update until a day later. Looks like the firmware was key to resolving the issue.

Maybe there's a way if the new version of the app requires a new firmware version to have the app request and download the needed firmware version instead of waiting for it to roll out on it's own? I had seen this thread, so I knew I had to wait, but for other users, they'd most likely think the latest app update caused the issue.

My Android APP stuck at updating Firmware 1.3.5 for last 30 min.

@James, that error means you still haven't gotten the new firmware. Give it another day and check under Settings. It should be 1.3.5.

Thank you.
