Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Mobile and apps/Categories in mobile app/Proposal/en

  • Problem: Currently categories are only visible to readers when using the Wikipedia website. Mobile app users can't see the categories that articles have been placed in, or browse through the attached categories. When they are also visible in the app they could make for instance some Wikipedia lists abundant. Benefit from that is this would lower the amount of pages that have to be maintained with recent information.
  • Proposed solution: Display the categories that a page belongs to and allow readers to browse to those categories.
  • Who would benefit: Readers, community and Wikipedians using the Wikipedia mobile application.
  • More comments: Because of issues with Parsoid and/or the Mobile Content Service, readers may have to view category pages in the mobile web version, but still within the app. This is similar to what happens when viewing the history of the page, etc.
