Internet access through mobile phone is increasing but not all Wikimedia projects have official apps in all mobile operating systems. And for those apps like Wiktionary, a different approach would be useful to foster offline usage in Global South regions where Internet connectivity is still a luxury for the majority of the population.

In order to address these issues, WMIN intends to launch a Mobile Apps Design Contest during May - June 2015 engaging the MediaWiki, FOSS and mobile developer communities.

We welcome community input for this program at


The contest will be launched by mid May 2015 based on these inputs.
