Android app to quickly post photos to the Fediverse.

PLA wrote this app to scratch an itch which was to post photos to the Fediverse frictionlessly while riding his bike.
We are continuing his project to honour his memory.

You configure the text and hashtags for the status ahead of time. Then with 3 taps post a photo:
* Press for camera.
* Frame subject and press to take photo.
* Press to accept photo and you are done!

The posting of the photo and status text is performed in the background.
If connectivity is bad it will upload when connectivity allows.

Other features:
* Multiple accounts.
* Multiple status configurations.
* Optional customizable date format using Java Simple Date Format.
The default format string is "EEEE MMMM dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss a z".
* Optional customizable latitude and longitude URL or text. Using two format arguments %.5f.
The default format string is: "https://openstreetmap.org?zoom=17&layers=m&mlat=%.5f&mlon=%.5f"
If you prefer Google Maps: "https://www.google.com/maps/search/?api=1&query=%.5f,%.5f".
* After the photo is posted the app can:
- Leave photo in the FediPhoto-Lineage folder
- Copy the photo to the Android Pictures folder
- Move the photo to the Android Pictures folder
- Delete the photo
