Mobile user testing

From Wikimania

The Readers department at the Wikimedia Foundation would like feedback on upcoming features. We're looking for interested attendees to help us with user testing during the event. We'll be making ourselves available at Wikimania for discussion, specifically about the features mentioned below.

What are we testing?

Wikitext keyboard (Android)

Details on Phabricator ticket T195208

For editors who use wikitext, we've created a mobile 'wikitext' keyboard that can be used on Android devices for editing on mobile web and in the app.

Try it out by participating in an in-person user study, or stop by to pick up instructions and a survey form to fill out later at your leisure.

Advanced mobile contributions on web

  • Editor workflow interviews
  • Navigation exercise
  • Demo and Q&A of planned changes

Mobile app testing (Android or iOS app)

Run through the experience of installing and using the latest version of the iOS/Android app (depending on your device) and tell us what you think.
