    Question Posting phone snapshots as part of user-surf reports?

    hi micah and others,
    sorry if this is redundant, but I was wondering if there is a way to include a snapshot taken with my phone (Pre) with the "add report" option. Can users do this?

    Being able to post a brief video clip would be really cool too, if it could autolink to youtube or fb, which the pre (+iphone?) exports to!

    Technically that would be a difficult thing to do since each phone has different methods of attaching photos...

    I uploaded a few shots to the gallery the same time as I left a report. Thats the only way I know how to give a visual example. And now that I think about it, you could actually just say something like :see shots: in the report when you leave it.

    I think this would be a really cool advancement to make though, especially being that a picture/video is a much better example than words. It would also settle all the disputes on bad reporters, as long as they have a point and shoot or a cell.

    On a side note, we need a substantial swell to come through... I'm starting to lose my focking mind here... getting short with people... in a bad mood at work b/c there is nothing to look forward to... and I'm beginning to fear that I'm going to drink myself to death waiting.

    it would also be cool if we could out in a report from our phone, like micah sets up a number and u text it ur report and the report comes up.

    ya, this would definitely be a really cool feature. Unfortunately, however, there is no quick and easy way to do it with mobile devices... There are definitely ways to do it... and we will certainly keep it in mind for down the road development. The most appropriate way would be to make mobile specific apps that make use of the photo snapshot feature (like on the iPhone).
