Wiki Mobile Apps Design Contest 2015 is a Wikimedia India (WMIN) project that aims to encourage MediaWiki, FOSS and mobile developer communities in India to come up with mobile applications that will help the spread of Wikimedia projects.

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 and the contest will be launched by mid May 2015 based on the inputs.
