for your community

Vanillaforums is one of the greatest online community solutions available. As being administrators, designers and developers of numerous Vanilla communities ourselves we have always been on the look out to improve our own and our clients forums. This is why we decided to improve the interaction and comfort of our communities users and create a native mobile app for Vanillaforums.

Apps are not only a great way to improve the mobile experience of your community, they drive higher engagement and ease user acquisition to a new level: The app stores with millions of users looking to be part of a social network every day.

This is why we came up with a versatile and robust app, API and server infrastructure and offer a hosted white label solution to our clients.

Core Features & Add-ons

VanillaAPP runs most of the core features of the open source version of Vanillaforums. In addition, we integrated some popular functions and plugins.


VanillaApp lets your users create, read, bookmark and follow discussions. Design-wise we integrated a smart color coded design which helps users to navigate fast to the discussions they created, participated or want to follow.
