David, it's not protected and submitting a response has worked once over VPN after many many tries, but I had to resubmit maybe 20 times before it went through.
Submitting through web works.
Same device, same connection, but doing it without the app is more hassle
Btw, I had also asked a few days ago here or via another channel whether it's possible to get a search field when embedding the map on my own website. Right now I can only filter by survey, but not actually search the map for markers/responses.
[David Losada, Ushahidi] that’s very interesting behaviour CR0CKER . I’m not quite sure why the transmission would be less reliable when originated from the mobile app, than from the browser. I think that in theory, the number of requests involved should be around the same in both cases, using the same protocols and channels. I’m going to share your message in our mobile development internal channels to see if someone comes up with an idea.
[David Losada, Ushahidi] Interesting experience from a user in China that is having trouble submitting via the mobile app. It worked for him/her with no problem while using the mobile browser. Can anybody come up with a theory? Anything different in the amount / size of the requests the transaction requires when done from the platform mobile app?

[David Losada, Ushahidi] ignore the above, fat fingers late in the evening
[David Losada, Ushahidi] re: search field on embed .. there must have been a design / UX decision to drop that on restricted dimensions + embed . I would suggest filing a github issue at https://github.com/ushahidi/platform so that we discuss and tackle the issue in detail there
[David Losada, Ushahidi] when a new release comes out, you would uncompress it on top of the old one. Just keep a copy of whatever files carrying your configuration, so you may re-apply them in case they are overwritten
[David Losada, Ushahidi] It looks like you need to point your Apache webserver to the folder where index.html is present . After unpacking the file downloaded from github , there should be a html folder containing that file
[David Losada, Ushahidi] the file does a lot of the work already done, but it still requires some server management skills like configuring web servers, database servers and running some commands. I’m sorry we can’t just script all that to happen easily on your side, with the resources we have
