Wikimedia Commons, which acts as Wikipedia's media repository, has pushed its Android and iOS app out of the beta phase, giving photo collecting for the digital encyclopedia a workflow that isn't chained to a browser. By registering an account online and wielding the software, users can upload photographs taken with the application -- or within their device's library -- straight to the organization's database, and endow them with titles and descriptions. With the Android flavor, multiple photos can be uploaded at once, images can be assigned categories and those torn between snapping pictures for the open source book of knowledge and their social circles can share their contributions through the likes of Facebook, Twitter and other services.
