for your community

Vanillaforums is one of the greatest online community solutions available. As being admins, designers and developers of numerous Vanilla communities ourselves, we have constantly been on the lookout to improve our forum usability of forums. So we decided to create native mobile apps for Vanillaforums.

Apps are not only a great way to improve the mobile experience of your community. They also increase engagement and facilitate user acquisition through the app stores - with millions of users looking to be part of a social network every day.

That's why we are offering a hosted white label solution for you today - with a versatile yet robust app, API and server infrastructure.

Core Features & Add-ons

Vanilla APP integrates the core features of the open-source version of Vanillaforums. Besides, we included some popular functions and plugins.


Vanilla APP allows your users to create, read, bookmark and follow discussions. We integrated a smart color-coded design that helps users to quickly navigate to the discussions and posts they created, participated or wish to follow.


Vanilla APP mirrors the Vanillaforums internal category system. Whether it's subcategories or category descriptions, we integrated all aspects.


Private messaging is a relevant and vital part of every community. We developed a modern messaging system on top of Vanillaforum's conversations application. That way, Vanilla APP provides a great messaging flow between your users.

Push Notifications

Notifications are the true power of app-based social communities. Remind your users about ongoings in the community and draw them back to activity with alerts and push notifications.

Widgets & More

To integrate Vanilla APP deeply into the daily user experience of mobile users, we utilize popular iOS and Android functions like Widgets, 3D Touch and more.

Vanilla Add-ons

Vanilla APP also integrates popular Vanillaforums plugins and applications like Flagging, BBCode, Emojis, Tagging, YAGA, Online Now, Post Count, Quotes, Vanillicon, Signatures and more. Ask us for the add-ons you are looking for.
