Does the portal submission system need improving? Am I the only one?
This tends to be my usual submission story when travelling and exploring
I find a nice portal candidate somewhere where there are basically no portals or very few.
I take the time to take the 2 nice photos and start the submission process.
However I'm at 2bars 4g signal. What follows is a fight to send my submission. I can wait 5 minutes before receiving an error and trying again. This may repeat 5 or 6 times before submission passes or the app gets "stuck" in a submission attempt state.
Now if I restart the app I lose the photos and submission. I cannot save the submission for later without taking the photos separately and if I do that finding the area on the submission map is also not convenient.
Meanwhile for the scout controller scans we can upload them in the background and continue playing without worrying.
During portal submission my game is essentially locked up until submission is completed meaning I cannot explore further or risk missing other submissions or existing portals. Once again portal scans can be done and let upload in the background while i continue to play.
Does this frustrate anyone else? Is there any chance the process can be smoothed out?
