After taking a new photo and I press the button to send it then Ingress terminates and must be restarted. I noticed this happened constantly if I had the google maps application also open in the process of getting directions to go somewhere.
Thanks for reaching out, @AgentOberle! Please reinstall the app, make sure to clear all the applications running in the background, and check if that helps. Do let us know if this continues.
I did that a while back... as I said... it happens when Google Maps is running... no one else has seen this issue?
