How do I add attachments from my phone?

Adding attachments from a mobile device, such as an iPhone or Android device, is easy, and very similar to adding attachments on the desktop. Scroll to the bottom of the description area and tap “Choose File”.

Depending on your device, you may be prompted to either upload an image from your phone or take a picture with the phone's camera.

Kindling automatically detects the type of file being uploaded, as well as the orientation of the photograph. It'll show you a preview of how the final Idea will look.

If your phone supports it, you can also upload files from your phone (this is mainly Android devices; iOS does not support general file uploading). Once you‘re done, submit the Idea and your attachments will all display at the bottom.

How Are Attachments Displayed in Kindling?

Attachments appear below the Idea/Post description or comment. Images will be displayed inline, while video will, after a short wait, be available to play back within the browser. All other attachments appear as clickable icons with the name of the attachment alongside it.
