Good idea, not good on mobile
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is a good idea but to clunky for users to manage on mobile.

The text box does not automatically jump to the location directly above the on-screen keyboard - it is instead masked by the keyboard requiring the user to scroll down to enter text.

Images can only be added by pasting or manually typing the URL - far too convoluted for mobile use. If you then decide you don't want to add an image, the controls cannot be removed from the text box - you can only refresh the browser. It should be noted image adding can be disabled.

If a user presses the post checkin button once location has been identified without entering text, they will be returned and forced to enter something. But the button will then have disappeared and cannot be brought back without refreshing the page and starting again.

A good idea, but nowhere near slick enough on mobile for extended use.

Tested with WP 3.8.1, Buddyboss 3.1.5, Android 4.2.2
