Improved method for selecting photos for upload

I asked for this once at https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/novell-filr/Idea/Detail/1105. It is currently marked as completed, but I don't see any change in the app so I am asking for it again.

This is NOT a duplicate of https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/novell-filr/Idea/Detail/2171. That was a separate problem.

Problem: User takes 100 photos and then needs to upload them. Currently they have to open the Filr app and individually select 100 photos. That takes too long.

I am asking for some other method of selecting the photos besides scrolling and touching each of the 100 photos. Someone did ask for an auto-upload capability here: https://ideas.microfocus.com/MFI/novell-filr/Idea/Detail/1586 That would be one solution. Another option would be to select by date similar to the functionality in the iOS photo app. Just provide an option that doesn't require touching every single photo.

I agree with the post, I can't believe that when I am in my Gallery App on the iPHone, I can select lots of photos and upload them to various other apps or products such as "Messenger", "Mail", "iCloud"... Yet FILR isn't on the list. In order to upload these photos I have to open FILR, select the folder for upload, then I have to go FIND all my photos again and select them. This is extremely tedious and time consuming. File uploads into FILR should not be this tedious.

I agree with this, very irritating when you have lots of files.

Update: We have started working on the way to copy/upload photos from galary to Filr. Would love to have your feedback on beta app once this is ready.
