Earlier today we launched a unified FANDOM App for iOS, a major update to our flagship app. This app unites wiki, editorial, and Discussions content into one single experience — giving fans easy access to everything available for a specific fandom like Star Wars, 13 Reasons Why, or Fortnite. The Android version will quickly follow this July.
Let's take a quick look at the app and how it will continue to evolve throughout the year.
All the types of content on FANDOM play a vital role in the Fan Journey. People are fans of many topics, so making the full array of communities and content types accessible in the FANDOM App will be key to creating an even better mobile experience for your community.

So you've found your way onto FANDOM - congrats! You're in for fun discoveries, achievements you'll be proud of, and perhaps even new friends.

As Discussions becomes more widely embraced across FANDOM, there are more and more communities with lots of posting activity. Not all of these have active admins with the extra time and inclination to moderate. That’s why we’ll be introducing a new global user group next week. Its members will step in across FANDOM to moderate Discussions where help is urgently needed — either because the community has no admins, because the admins have firmly decided not to take an interest in their Discussions, or because they’ve explicitly asked for support.
This group, called global Discussions moderators, will launch with a set of volunteers who have solid moderation experience in Discussions and on their respective wikis. In many cases they have alread…

There have been a lot of exciting updates to FANDOM lately, between continued work on Wiki Modernization and the launch of the new FANDOM News and Stories. One of our most recent updates was the new page and article headers, and we are excited to announce that the page header will be arriving on Discussions tomorrow!
The goal of Wiki Modernization is to offer a modern digital experience that provides the right content at the right time, is easy to navigate, and delivers a better experience for our audience. Tomorrow's update brings those goals into Discussions by making it much more visually connected to the wiki. Navigating back and forth between Discussions and wiki articles will become much easier.
Check out some screenshots of the update…Read more >
