If you are an admin of your community, then it is especially important for you to know that approximately half of the visits across FANDOM are coming from mobile devices. To support that mobile traffic, FANDOM is offering a number of iOS and Android apps.

For a list of FANDOM Community Apps, visit the Google Play Store. For iOS, your community's content is available via the unified FANDOM App.

Curating your app

The Mobile Main Page tool allows admins to specify content that will be linked on the Community App's main page, as well as the main page seen by visitors on mobile web.

Promoting your Community App

To ensure the success of this app, we highly recommend that you take a moment to tell your users about it. We recommend the following ways to spread the word:

  • Community Corner message - Found at MediaWiki:Community-corner on your respective communities. This will send an admin message to all users on your community.
  • Highlighted Forum post - Found at Special:Forum if enabled, this will send a notification to all users on your community.
  • Link to the app in an archived Discussions post or near the top of the Discussions Guidelines.
  • Linking to the app via the desktop main page.
  • Include links in top navigation via MediaWiki:Wiki-navigation.

We highly encourage you to include links to your particular Community Apps throughout your wiki. Approximately half of your users are already participating through their mobile devices. This optimizes their experience, lets them contribute through Discussions, and increases your community's visibility.

In addition, the iOS FANDOM app includes breaking news content on a number of select topics, created and curated by the FANDOM editorial team, that complements your wiki's articles and Discussions.
