Community Wishlist Survey 2017/Mobile and apps/Categories shown in the app

< Community Wishlist Survey 2017‎ | Mobile and apps

 ◄ Back to Mobile and apps  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!


  • Problem: Wikipedia editors spend a significant amount of time categorizing pages so that relevant pages can be quickly found. Not having access to these categories puts mobile app users at a significant disadvantage over desktop users. As more users in the developing world come online, they are missing a critical part of articles, especially if they start editing the encyclopedia. In addition, people are switching to mobile at a rapid pace, so feature parity with desktop sites are critical.
  • Who would benefit: Mobile app users (both readers and editors)
  • Proposed solution: Add a list of categories that article is in at the bottom of the article as a list. Also, create a navigation link to access these categories along with the article's sections.
