wmrc is an Android application to follow recent changes on Wikimedia projects in real time. Think LiveRC or Huggle but for mobile phones and tablets, built on modern backends (EventStreams, the MediaWiki Action API) with modern technology (Kotlin, OkHttp).
wmrc is currently under development after a two presentations at the 2018 French WikiConvention (Grenoble, 6th of October 2018) and at the 2019 French WikiConvention (Bruxelles, 7th of September 2019).
As of August 2020, you need to build wmrc yourself as the version available through the F-Droid repository below does not support the more than 2 billions revisions which have been reached. Also, you need to use Android 5 or higher, as older versions of Android are not compatible with the HTTPS protocol version enforced by the Wikimedia projects these days.
Additionaly, wmrc is designed to take into account the following properties of mobile phones and tablets:
