SmugMug App for Android is only randomly Auto-uploading
In the past few months when I've been relying more on the SmugMug App (for Android) to do my auto-uploading (due to the apparent demise of "Instant SmugMug", an outside app) I've been finding it to be quite unreliable. In other words, I never know when it's going to actually do its job according to the settings I've provided, or when it's going to simply decide not to auto-upload. I have a Samsung Note 5. During this past month, it simply hasn't been doing auto-uploads even though I had a gallery chosen & had plenty of space in the gallery. The app often needs to be "primed" somehow, & even that doesn't always do anything. The way I sometimes "prime" it, is this: Open the app & pull down to refresh it, touch the "cloud" icon to see if there's any info there about the most recent upload attempts, and/or go into Settings & select a different gallery for Auto-uploads or even re-select the same gallery.
I haven't found any "rhyme or reason" for when the SmugMug App will work & auto-upload as I expect it to, & when it will not. I have it set to auto-upload only when in Wi-Fi. I always give it plenty of time to auto-upload once I get home and/ or definitely into Wi-Fi before assuming it's not going to do it. (I mean, I give it many many hours). So it's not that I'm just getting into Wi-Fi. & getting impatient. It's that I'll do a lot of photos & eventually check to see if they uploaded. And then often I'll see that no, they didn't upload & that even lots of photos from a week ago never uploaded either.
I was on a hike yesterday & have had Auto-uploads set, but those photos never did upload many hours after I'd been back in Wi-Fi. Even after several hours when I went in & changed the gallery just to "prime" it (even tho the selected one was fine), nothing happened. But then, just before writing this, I just shot a test photo & suddenly that one auto-uploaded. I'm sorry I can't find any common link to when the app works & when it doesn't. Hope you guys can!! Oh, I also set my old phone (a Samsung S4) to Auto-upload, & that's unreliable as well. (& all my apps are set to auto-update, so I should have the latest update).
