Survey123 vs AppStudio

I have used both of these interfaces when collecting simple geographic info, with photo attachments using android os and iphone devices.

I have found some shortcomings when using the app. Specifically, when not in a data coverage area the uploads of the photos fail and the app does not cache the photos in the background by default. Whereas the survey123 seems to do this just fine.


I understand the apps can be configured and customized, but my organization has very little in terms of resources to do this, so I was wondering if I am missing something simple or not?


I want to be able to capture locations with photos and notes. If I have to go the route of gaining the rest of my team access to survey123 existing features (which would cost me more money, I believe???), then I will do this instead of fixing the app.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
