Uploading images with iPhone

    I have three image uploads on my form: Item, Nameplate, and Receipt.  A submission is fine from my computer, but when I complete the form with my iPhone, all three images in the submission show up as the last one, Receipt.

    Is there a workaround for this problem? Here is a link to my form: http://www.jotform.us/jodyb/record

    Thanks, Jody

    Hi Jody,

    For mobile uploads, it is usually recommended now to use the Filepicker.io field instead of the upload file field. 

    You can learn more about the filepicker.io here: Filepicker-io-JotForm-Let-Your-Users-Upload-Files-From-the-Cloud

    Please try this, and inform us if this does not make any difference.

    I was unable to have success with Filepicker.io

    My interpretation of the problem is that the iPhone simply names each one image.jpg whereas a computer has file names.  So on the iPhone, the last image in the form overwrites the other ones. I would like to use the simple one-file upload field, but I need three of these in one form. 

    Thanks, Jody

    After conducting further research, I have learned that this is a problem that is inherent to iOS 6. Image files are indeed renamed as image.jpg. Unfortunately, there is no workaround to this, at least for now.

    Sticking to the single file upload fields is the only way to go.
